Peter Hook To Perform Joy Division & New Order Albums On 2017 Australian Tour

Written by Tom Williams on March 14, 2017

Peter Hook, the former bassist of British outfits Joy Division and New Order, is heading back to Australia to perform two albums by the influential bands he co-founded.

In October this year, Peter Hook & The Light will knock out Joy Division’s singles compilation Substance and New Order’s compilation album Substance 1987 in their entirety, at venues in Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.

On their previous 2015 Australian tour, the band performed two New Order albums in their entirety, as well as a bunch of New Order tracks.

This time around, they’ll be dropping huge cuts like New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’, ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ and ‘Temptation’; and Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, ‘Transmission’ and ‘Digital’, just to name a few.

Catch all the tour dates and ticket details, below.
