Peter Hook and the Light to Play Joy Division Albums on 2022 North American Tour
Peter Hook and the Light are set to tour North American next year, and they’ll be playing Joy Division’s two classic albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer.
The 26-date North American leg of the Joy Division: A Celebration tour will kick off with two shows at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on August 11th and 12th. It’ll wrap on September 14th at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
On top of playing Unknown Pleasures and Closer in their entirety, Hook and the Light will perform Joy Division’s early Warsaw material, tracks from their compilation Still, and the final songs the band wrote — “Ceremony” and “In a Lonely Place” — which were ultimately released by New Order. Hook and the Light will open the shows with a selection of New Order tracks.
Hook had planned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Closer with a tour last year before the pandemic hit. While those plans were delayed, he did open up to Rolling Stone about his complicated relationship with the album, which was released two months after frontman Ian Curtis’ death by suicide.
