Peter Hook & The Light Announce North American Tour
Peter Hook is continuing to tour his discography with a new North American run scheduled for October and November. The former Joy Division and New Order bassist will be taking his band The Light out to perform the early nineties New Order albums Technique and Republic over fifteen concerts.
“Both of the Factory Records albums saw New Order make significant breakthroughs across at Atlantic and in many ways the late Eighties marked a high point with the band as with the support of Quincy Jones’ Q-West label they scored numbers Billboard chart dance hits with Technique’s acid house influence before Republic was to become their best ever selling album in the US,” a press release states. Hook will perform each of the albums in their entirety with The Light starting things off with a set of Joy Division material.
The tour begins October 24th at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before heading north into Canada and back down into the Midwest. They’ll pop back into Canada for a show in Vancouver before heading down the West Coast and cutting across the South. The final date on the tour is scheduled for November 12th in Atlanta, Georgia.
