Peter Hook & The Light announce more Tour Dates Of Substance – The Albums Of
Joy Division & New Order For November / December 2017
Peter Hook & The Light are to return to Ireland and play more UK dates in November and December 2017 as they return from their widely acclaimed world tour performing both Substance albums by Joy Division and New Order.
Having just wrapped up a string of UK dates, the Irish section of dates sees visits to Limerick, Dublin and Belfast whist the band also perform in Norwich, Salisbury, Bristol, Wolverhampton and Wakefield with a massive end of year tour homecoming concert also announced for Manchester Academy 1.
In addition, a special London return has been announced as The Light’s final show of the year at The Roundhouse, Camden where they will be playing Joy Divisions’ two albums in full along with a support set of New Order material.
Critical reaction from fans and media alike have been very strong with many commenting on the strength of the shows and performances. The debut Manchester Apollo show was awarded five stars from the Manchester Evening News – “the place is packed and the atmosphere electric” – and similar reviews and reactions have followed the band on their travels so far.
“In the two-and-a-half hours Peter Hook & The Light were on stage, it was hard to fathom how many hits New Order and Joy Division had. Just within the first hour, there were enough songs that some artists today wish they could both write and have in their arsenal. That is what great chemistry in a band does.” Huffington Post
“A brilliant night, a celebration of the music of Joy Division and New Order. That is Hooky’s mission and this was easily mission accomplished.” Everything Flows
“A real treat.” LA Record

“Peter Hook & The Light have developed into a well-oiled machine that – whisper it – actually deliver these songs better than the current line-up of New Order….they’ve become an impressive tour de force more than worthy of associating themselves with arguably two of the finest back catalogues in rock and roll history.” Drowned In Sound
‘A masterclass in euphoria and heartache in equal measure…. The chronology of the set played perfectly as high spirits continued to grow right up until the end of the show.” Gigwise
“This is New Order reinvigorated, reenergized; Hooky has arguably reclaimed the songs and is delivering them with heart and soul.” – Louder Than War
“It was certainly one of those special shows were the venue, artist, and fans all clicked perfectly to make for a very memorable experience and a blazing hot and awesome show by a legendary artist and performer, who in my opinion is the heart and soul of New Order keeping the most authentic live performance of their music alive for old and new fans.” Rock Subculture
“By focusing solely on the music, and allowing the songs inherent structure to do the heavy lifting instead of blowing them up into pseudo-stadium cuts, their inherent virtues were that much more apparent. Frankly, these songs rock…..This is Peter Hook and his band taking a chance, dusting off wrongly ignored tunes, and kicking ass. “ Punk News
