The Ritz, Manchester, England, United Kingdom (1981)
This was my first New Order gig,The attendance was around 4 to 5 hundred. I must have liked it cos ive still got the ticket. I remember them being shy and nervous, I remember Barney telling us it was ok to dance at one point and I remember them walking off and leaving the drum machine playing at the end.
I also remember tony wilson at this gig with a film crew and ive always wondered if they used some of it in the Taras Shevchenko video or of the footage still exists.
