Ex-Joy Division Bassist Peter Hook To Perform In Wrocław

Set will include classics by both Joy Division and New Order

Former Joy Division and New Order Bassist Peter Hook will perform in Wrocław on November 15th at Zaklęte Rewiry.

Playing the lead role in his band ‘Peter Hook & The Light’, Hook will perform songs from Joy Division’s renowned ‘Substance’ album as well hits from New Order’s repertoire.

Tickets for the gig can be bought online here for 99zł.

Peter Hook left New Order in 2007 after falling out with other band members over various issues (detailed here).

The bitter row then continued when Hook sued the remaining members of New Order, who decided to continue as a band without him. A settlement was eventually reached in September of last year, following which New Order’s Facebook Page started to promote Peter Hook’s touring activities.

Although it is easy for critics to label Peter Hook & The Light as a glorified cover band, reviews of their live shows have almost universally been positive.

Given that none of us will see Joy Division live again (for obvious reasons), and the current New Order lineup are highly unlikely to perform in Wrocław, this gig is the perfect opportunity for Wrocławians to listen to Joy Division and New Order classics performed properly live.
