Seminal bassist Peter Hook is returning to the stage as he continues to revisit his earlier catalogue, but with his own outfit the Light.
After previously touring Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer, as well as New Order’s first two albums, Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies towards the end of last year, Hooky is back to further his ventures and exploits.
The two September shows will feature at Manchester’s the Ritz and at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, following further tours of both Joy Division and early New Order material abroad, where Hooky and the band will visit the likes of Rome, Shanghai and Montpellier.
Peter Hook and The Light are known for bringing the bold, catastrophic surges and electronic zones that we all know and love from Hooky back in his New Order days, but with a personal twist.
The dates are as follows:
25th September – The Ritz, Manchester
27th September – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
