English synth-pop bands New Order and Pet Shop Boys have announced the Unity Tour, a co-headlining tour occurring in the fall of 2020. The tour will kick off on September 5th at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, Ontario, and close on October 2nd at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California. The tour will include stops in Madison Square Garden in New York on September 12, and the brand new Chase Center in San Fransisco, California on September 30th.
New Order has been highly influential in both rock and electronic genres for decades. They have released 10 studio albums since the band came together in 1980, including their most recent 2015 work, Music Complete. The band has remained active touring, including headlining Music Tastes Good in 2018, and Tibet House US in 2017.
Like New Order, Pet Shop Boys first formed in the early 1980’s in England, and still continue to perform live and write new music. The band’s 14th studio album, Hotspot, just dropped in late January of last month, which includes the highly regarded single “Monkey Business“. In addition to the Unity Tour, Pet Shop Boys will be headlining Bilbao BBK Festival this coming summer.
