New Order have added two new dates to their spring UK tour.

The reunited band will play a show at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on May 6 and an additional gig at O2 Academy Newcastle on May 8.

Before the Edinburgh and Newcastle dates, the band will play two hometown shows at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on April 26 and 27, two shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on May 2 and 3, and gigs in Birmingham and Glasgow.

New Order, who are also set to play T In The Park, Bestival, Benicassim and a series of others festivals during the summer, announced in late 2011 that they had reformed, but that founding member and bass player Peter Hook would not be part of their line-up.

Instead keyboard player Gillian Gilbert, who hadn’t performed with the band for over 10 years, rejoined and bass duties were taken up by Tom Chapman, who was part of frontman Bernard Sumner’s recent project Bad Lieutenant.

The tour is the band’s first in the UK for over five years.

New Order will now play:

O2 Apollo Manchester (April 26, 27)
Birmingham Ballroom (29)
O2 Academy Brixton (May 2, 3)
O2 Academy Glasgow (5)
Edinburgh Usher Hall (6)
O2 Academy Newcastle (8)
