Back On The Hook


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.
