Live Review: New Order / Confidence Man – 3Arena, Dublin 01.10.2023, plus Gallery and setlists

New Order rolled into a packed out 3Arena on the Dublin leg of their current UK and European tour, playing a fantastic set containing all the hits and more. Opening with Crystal before firing Age of Consent and Ceremony from their enviable canon, they took the audience in a trip through their discography.

Holding back the big guns till the end the band finished their set with a fantastic triple header of True Faith, Blue Monday and Temptation, which had the crowd baying for more. To their delight, having already included isolation in their set, the bands was made up of three Joy Division songs; Atmosphere, Transmission and Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Support for the evening came from Australian Electropop act Confidence Man.
