UPDATE: Video from the event is posted here.

New Order are preparing to play the 24th annual Tibet House benefit tomorrow night at Carnegie Hall. Ahead of the gig, Bernard Sumner told Boston's Metro that the band is planning to perform a special arrangement of the classic "Your Silent Face," plus they'll do some sort of collaboration with Iggy Pop, who is also performing at the benefit. In the interview, Sumner mentioned he's a big Iggy fan and recalled the time he met him back in the 80s:

"I’ve been a massive fan of Iggy’s from the early days of Joy Division...I shook his hand once! A friend was a roadie for him. I was a bit inebriated at the time. I was so pleased to meet him that I got really drunk, I got drunk as his show went on. I didn’t even say it was me, I just said hello like a fan."

Sumner also shrugged off recent criticism from ex-bassist Peter Hook about only touring the hits, revealing New Order has 14 new ideas they've been working on, with seven of the songs now finished with his vocals.  Sumner said the band is still trying to figure out whether to release the material as a full album or series of EPs.

The article ended with Sumner commenting on Hook, claiming he left the band and wishing him the best. Read the full article over at Metro.

Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook are both writing memoirs about their days in New Order. Sumner's autobiography is scheduled for release this fall, and Hook's book is still in the works, though his Joy Division memoir, Unknown Pleasures: Inside Joy Division was released in 2012.

Peter Hook recently announced dates for a North American tour. Tickets for the November 13th date at the Magic Bag in Ferndale go on sale Friday, March 14th.
