WEDNESDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, FROM 7PM: IBIZA ROCKS: NEW ORDER + THE WHIP


 Without a shadow of a doubt, tomorrow’s line up at Ibiza Rocks is one of the most highly anticipated of the summer, all the more so considering that is to be headliner NEW ORDER’s first ever live performance on the White Island. Hard to believe, but true… 

One of the most influential and acclaimed formations of the 80s, New Order are pioneers of the electronic music scene and responsible for the opening of the world famous Hacienda Club in Manchester in 1982 and the classic 1983 hit ‘Blue Monday’, one of the best selling singles of all time.

Their fifth album ‘Technique’, partially recorded in Ibiza in 1989, is a perfect representation of Balearic Beat, with acid house influences oozing   the band’s own signature electro/rock sound.

Bernard Sumner, New Order said: “The last time New Order were in Ibiza was the second summer of love. We were there to record an album and didn’t really know what we were walking into. By the time we left a few months later New Order, the Happy Mondays and the Hacienda had collided and fused with the Balearics and Ibiza’s superclubs. Manchester had become ‘Madchester’, and dance music had made a quantum leap.  Although we didn’t spend much time in the studio we left with the basis of our album Technique.  New Order and Ibiza are forever entwined. There’s no going back so instead we look forward -to playing our first ever concert on the island at Ibiza Rocks.”

Warming up the stage and the crowd before that though, and Ibiza Rocks are delighted to bring The Whip back to their stage. The Manchester trio, whose new album ‘Wired Together’ was recently released, is currently supporting New Order on their tour, ergo, hurrah for Ibiza, they are back in San Antonio tomorrow, Wednesday.
