Peter Hook and The Light have announced their first headline dates of 2023 with THREE Manchester gigs at the Albert Hall.

They will be performing Joy Division’s two albums, New Order’s first two and both band’s Substances’ in full during what promises to be epic shows.

Taking place in the atmospheric and ideally suited Albert Hall, The Light pair and perform both “Unknown Pleasures” & “Movement” on Thursday 6 April, “Closer” & “Power, Corruption & Lies” on Good Friday 7 April with a triumphant performance of both bands “Substance” compilation albums Easter Saturday 8 April.

The shows follow 11 years of touring for The Light who have now played 11 albums in full from Peter Hook’s bands and performed more than 130 songs from the repertoire.

With the Easter Homecoming concerts marking the first time that the band have combined New Order and Joy Division’s individual albums in one show, pairing both the first and second albums of each band on separate nights, these performances offer a unique counterpoint for fans to compare both LP’s live.
