PETER HOOK & The Light


"Unknown Pleasures"

Peter Hook, founding member & legendary bassist bassist of both even more legendary bands Joy Division and later New Order, has decided to honour the outstanding work of his first band and the undoubted genius of the late Ian Curtis by giving people the opportunity to hear both of Joy Division's masterpiece albums, "Unknown Pleasures" and "Closer", live and in their entireties.

Backed by his band The Light, Hooky first played "Unknown Pleasures" at the Factory club in Manchester on May 18th & 19th 2010, before taking the show on the road throughout Europe, Australia/NZ and the United States.

One year on, on May 18th & 19th 2011, the band recreated "Closer" for the first time ever, before continuing to hit the road once again, with 2011 dates across Europe once again as well as in Brazil, the USA, Canada & Mexico.



2012 will see Peter Hook & The Light continue to perform "Unknown Pleasures" live and in its entirety in new places all around the world, whilst also returning to places previously visited to perform the "Closer" follow up show.

2012 tour dates have already been announced for mainland Europe as well as Russia, Australia, New Zealand & Japan and last but not least they will perform as our Saturday headliners on BIMFEST 2012!
