Peter Hook & The Light has announced a huge run of UK tour dates including Blackburn’s King George’s Hall and Warrington’s Parr Hall.
The gigs will find him performing the Substances albums by Joy Division and New Order in full.
Peter Hook first revisited the seminal Joy Division album Unknown Pleasures back in May 2010 for a commemorative charity concert and has followed it each year by performing subsequent albums from the repertoire of his bands, Joy Division and New Order. Peter Hook & The Light have since moved through each of those albums, culminating in the Factory Records Substance compilations.
Speaking about the shows and performing Substance, Peter Hook said, “It still amazes me how enjoyable it is to play the ‘Substance’ LPs. The contrast between Joy Division and New Order is very apparent but both complement each other very well. My only frustration is not being able to play more of our records each night. I am totally looking forward to the next phase. So, let’s enjoy some ‘Substance’ and get ready for the future. Lots of love, Hooky.”
