AN EVENING WITH PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT
JOY DIVISION : A CELEBRATION
PERFORMING THE ALBUMS UNKNOWN PLEASURES & CLOSER
Plus an opening set of New Order material

Under 25s require ID (passport/driving licence) to purchase alcohol

A twelve date cross country English tour has been announced for Peter Hook & The Light’s “Joy Division : A Celebration” concerts which sees take to the road for four weekends in April 2022, returning to some venues and playing others for the first time.
 
The concerts which see the band play “Unknown Pleasures” and “Closer” in full along with an opening set of New Order material commemorate over four decades of Joy Division and Ian Curtis’ continuing influence.
 
In the first week of the tour, The Light come to Norwich UAE 9th April 2022.
 
The original “Joy Division : A Celebration” May 2020 concerts were timed for the forty year anniversary of the group and are now rescheduled to debut in January 2022 where The Light  play both Joy Division albums in full for the first time in the UK since at the Camden Roundhouse in 2017.
 
The events were also set to celebrate The Light’s 10th anniversary but will now come some eleven and a half years from Hooky beginning his odyssey through both his bands’ back catalogues.
 
These Joy Division album shows have become much less common for The Light as they moved through their progression of touring the New Order albums in succession. Aside from some one-off gigs such as The Roxy in LA and Manchester Academy, these concerts are the first major shows for this set in some years.
 
In addition to coming some 40 years since Joy Division ended, these gigs were also to mark a decade since The Light began at The Factory in Manchester on 18th May 2010. That journey has seen them now perform eleven of both his bands’ albums all round the world including numerous tours of Europe, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and the Far East.
 
The influence of Joy Division and their music remains strong in popular culture, holding a sincere reverence.  The albums are played sequentially in track order, respecting the inspiration and impact of the stunning debut album “Unknown Pleasures” and the immaculately produced second “Closer”.
 
“Unknown Pleasures” features “Disorder”, “Insight”, “New Dawn Fades”, and “She’s Lost Control” while “Closer”, considered “a start to finish masterpiece” by Pitchfork Media counts “Atrocity Exhibition”, “Heart And Soul” and “Twenty Four Hours” amongst its many highlights. 
 
In addition to the albums, the concerts span the entirety of Joy Division’s rich but short career including early Warsaw material, tracks from the compilation LP “Still” to the final songs “Ceremony” and “In a Lonely Place” written by Joy Division which were to form New Order’s first single.
