In their first full UK tour perform New Order’s third and fourth albums, “Low Life” and “Brotherhood”, Peter Hook & The Light take to the road for a string of dates in late September and early October 2015, returning to many venues where the band’s previous shows have sold out and been very well received.

Having recently returned from touring the albums in Australia, New Zealand and North America, the shows mark the first opportunity to see the LPs and singles performed in full in England and Scotland since the debut Manchester and London concerts in last September and the one off night at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge in December just gone.

The final of the three weekends brings dates at Chinnerys in Southend Thurs 1st Oct with a date in Southampton Fri 2nd Oct before the tour finishes up Sat 3rd Oct at The Assembly Rooms, Leamington Spa.

Peter Hook & the Light

As has become standard, Hooky and The Light will be supporting themselves at the concerts performing a selection of Joy Division material.

The concerts will include the singles and B-sides from New Orderís most prolific period. From August 1983 up to 1987, taking the audience from ìConfusionî to ìTrue Faithî, with both ìLow Lifeî and ìBrotherhoodî performed in full alongside all the other tracks from that fans consider New Orderís greatest period including ìThieves Like Usî ìBizarre Love Triangleî, ìThe Perfect Kissî and many more.

Both the singles and the albums for this period stand out as some of the finest work ever produced by the band and marking the high period of New Order artistically. The critical plaudits heaped upon “Power, Corruption & Lies” were followed by similar notices for “Low-Life” and “Brotherhood”, which are considered as a trio as the bandís greatest albums.

Peter Hook & the Light

Releasing ìLow Lifeî in 1985 alongside epic single “The Perfect Kiss”, whose 9 minute 12 inch mix is considered one of the best of the decade, “Low Life” has made many regard it as New Order’s most complete single album. Aside from the singles, the album contains many great records that have entered the canon, including “This Time Of Night”, “Sunrise”, “Elegia”, “Sooner Than You Think”, and the album’s closer “Face Up”, an energetic club track.

“Brotherhood” itself took a unique approach, splitting the rock side of the band to the first side of the album, with tracks “Paradise”, “As It Is When It Was” and “Way Of Life”, whereas the flip side was electronic, taking in the two singles and also “Every Second Counts”.

The Light’s concerts run up to 1987 when New Order enjoyed their biggest international hit “True Faith”.

Peter Hook & The Light’s “Lowlife” & “Brotherhood” shows chart New Order’s final stage of evolution from the post punk of Joy Division to defining themselves as electro pop pioneers at the cutting edge of the emerging club scene in the mid to late Eighties.

Peter Hook And The Light features Peter Hook on vocals and bass, Jack Bates on bass, David Potts on guitar, Andy Poole on keyboards and Paul Kehoe on drums. Having first performed the Joy Division albums in 2010, the band have continued to perform the Joy Division catalogue. The Light also toured North and South America and the UK and Europe performing New Orderís “Movement” and “Power Corruption And Lies” in 2013. 2014 saw many Festival, European and some Far East dates and following the well received debut “Low Life” and “Brotherhood” shows in Sept 2014 in the UK, the band undertook an extensive tour of the albums in South and North America in Oct and Nov 2014 before taking that show to Australia and New Zealand in February 2015.
