Peter Hook & The Light at The Ritz, Manchester

DHP Presents

Peter Hook & The Light

performing Lowlife and Brotherhood plus the hits.

Former Joy Division and New Order bass player Peter Hook returns to Manchester this September joined by his band The Light. They will play The Ritz on 25th September. The shows are part of a tour during which they’ll play the New Order albums ‘Low-Life’ and ‘Brotherhood’ live and in full. Peter Hook And The Light will be supporting themselves at the show with a set of Joy Division hits. This special hometown performance is a must-see or fans of either band.

Prior to this tour, Peter Hook And The Light performed around the world playing Joy Division records ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’. Hook conceived the idea in 2010 to honour the legacy of his first band. He first played ‘Unknown Pleasures’ in May 2010 at the iconic Factory Club in Manchester. The initial show was to honour the memory of the late Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, but the idea quickly snowballed into a tour of the UK, Europe, America, Australia and New Zealand. The success led to the decision to shine a light on New Order’s history.

‘Low-Life’ fused synthesised dance music with guitar, bass and drums. New Order’s third album featured ‘The Perfect Kiss’ and ‘Shellshock’, which was included on the film soundtrack Pretty In Pink. A year later, in 1986, New Order released ‘Brotherhood’, which divided the band’s two musical styles on the two sides of the record. Album track ‘Angel Dust’ married ‘Low-Life’ style guitar effects with a synthesised beat. Both records, which came in the purple period before the band’s first break up, are revered among New Order fans. Peter Hook And The Light will also play a selection of New Order on the night.

By the time the tour arrives in Manchester, the band will have gigged their way through a busy summer. With festival sets at Bestival, Hop Farm and more, the Ritz show will see a well-honed live set rock the band’s old Manchester stomping ground.
