New Order announced for the Palace Theatre in August

It's their first Minnesota show in almost 30 years.

This is no Blue Monday for New Order fans after the British legends announced their return to Minnesota.

The synth-pop masters, whose definitive '80s sound won them an army of followers, will play the Palace Theatre in St. Paul on Aug. 23.

They're known for a string of hits including "Blue Monday," "Bizarre Love Triangle," and "Age of Consent."

Concert-goers will get to see two of the three original members, with singer/guitarist Bernard Sumner and drummer Stephen Morris touring along with keyboardist Gilian Gilbert.

The other founding member, Peter Hook, quit the band in 2007 and just recently sued Sumner and Morris for continuing without him.
