New Order - Boston - 5 Aug 1993 - mp3

Last New Order night in North America.
Concert listing is here

  1. Because I don't say thank you when I should, I'll say it by giving everyone the venue it was "The Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts; Mansfield, MA"; it is now the Comcast Center and it's hardly in Boston... "According to mapquest it's 43 minutes/35.7 miles between the Parker house on School Street in Boston and the Comcast Center at 835 S.Main St Mansfield. So, if there's absolutely no traffic, it will take about 45 minutes. There's always traffic near Comcast center when ther'es a concert. In fact, getting out of the parking lot can take 20 minutes or more ... I'd estimate a more realistic estimate of time spent in the car to be 75-90 minutes in each direction." As for the concert in 1993 "NO: 05 AUG 93 Great Woods Theatre - Mansfield MA

    Writeup taken from an MP3 version I had lying around.

    Some intro music (sounding techno-like), with a couple of cuts while the taper was waiting for NO to show up.

    A bit of feedback at the start of Ruined_In_A_Day.

    BS: "'ank you."

    A couple of calls for Temptation and 'Hooky, Hooky!'.


    PH: "How we doin' kids? Yowwww!"

    BS: (at end) "Thank you. Thanks a lot. This is Dream_Attack."

    Some muttering around the taper about seating.

    Round_And_Round follows.

    Right before the second verse, somebody asks "are you ok?"

    BS: (at end) "Thanks."


    At the start somebody says, 'I hope you realize they won't play Shellshock.'.

    During the second verse, Bernard indeed mumbles something after one of the "how long will it last" refrains.

    Indeed, Bernard says "too fucking long" at the end.


    PH: "Anyway, it's the last day of our young American tour. Right, as much as we love you, we gotta go home...I just want to thank our crew, thank you, ladies nd gentlemen, it's been a pleasure. All drafts(?) for you."

    Bernard strums as he's saying this so it's a bit hard to make out.

    Everyone_Everywhere follows.

    PH: "Thank you, Boston."

    And you can hear people talking about leaving if they don't play Shellshock.


    BS: "This is True Faith."

    (at end)

    BS: "Thank you."


    PH: "Okay, we all believe in love, don't we? We all believe in bizarre love, don't we? Yeeah..."

    BS: "Okay, Peter."

    A/B split at this point.


    BS: "This is Temptation."

    (at end)

    BS: "Thank you."


    The penultimate time they would perform this track.

    Edit on tape at this point, as this is the end of the main set.


    PH: "Thank you very much, it's been a lovely way to finish."

    Blue_Monday concludes the set."
