At the end of 2016, Peter Hook & The Light embarked on a North American tour to perform Joy Division and New Order’s legendary Factory Records compilation albums “Substance” live, sequentially and in their entireties. Now they’re bringing it back for another round of tour dates from April to June.

Hook, who shares bass duties with his son Jack Bates, will kick off the tour at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 26th before heading north into Canada, then to the West Coast, and back east to wrap up. The final date is slated for June 4th at the State Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida.
