Peter Hook Books North American Tour to Perform New Order's 'Low-Life' and 'Brotherhood'
Published Mar 05, 2014Late last year, iconic post-punk bassist Peter Hook promised to perform New Order's classic LPs Low-Life (1985) and Brotherhood (1986) in full in 2014. Now, he's booked a North American tour for these full-album gigs.
This tour will find Hooky joined by his band the Light, marking the fourth time they've travelled through North America playing albums from the bassist's back catalogue. There will be 14 shows in all, including Canadian dates in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. See the schedule below.
In addition to the complete albums, these shows will include singles and B-sides spanning from 1983's "Confusion" to 1987's "True Faith" (the trip is appropriately called "From Confusion to True Faith"). This period includes the hit "Bizarre Love Triangle."
Adding to the nostalgia parade, the Light will perform as their own opening act, beginning the night with a selection of Joy Division songs.
Meanwhile, Hook still remains on bad terms with his former New Order bandmates, who continue to use the band name without him. They have some dates of their own in the coming months.
