On the heels of a triumphant swing through North and South America, Peter Hook & The Light have announced a fifth U.S. tour that will find the band playing states they’ve never played before.
A blistering live act that connects immediately with their audience, Hook & The Light are one of those rare bands that connect with fans of all ages. It’s not uncommon to find teenagers and forty-somethings in the crowd singing along to the songs together.
For this stateside swing, the band will be playing Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer. They’ll also open the show with a select set of New Order songs.
Ticket information here:
In other Hooky news, the band is making a series of live shows available for purchase. The six Joy Division and New Order albums they played across three nights back in 2014 (December 8th, 9th and 19th) at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge, Abbey Road can be purchased in an exclusive signed CD bundle (with an additional CD) here:
And it is quite a bundle: three concerts, six albums, three Double CD’s, 78 Tracks.
