Peter Hook & The Light – #Blueprintlive :: Venue
881 Greenville St
Performing New Order’s Low Life and Brotherhood live plus an opening set of Joy Division material
“Hooky’s defining bass and surprisingly assured and great vocals find a whole new meaning in his back catalogue….. What Hooky has done is grab these songs by the scruff of the neck and give them a punkiness with his bass driving the songs with an added raw power….Tonight is a real triumph -A romp through a back catalogue should never be this good but Hooky has made these songs have a very different narrative and put a whole new heart and soul into them” Louder Than War
Peter Hook & The Light Announce September 2013 North American Tour Performing New Order’s “Movement” and “Power, Corruption & Lies”
Following their sold out debut UK concerts in January 2013, Peter Hook & The Light are to debut their critically acclaimed performances of the first two New Order albums, “Movement” (1981) and “Power, Corruption & Lies” (1983) to North American audiences for the first time in September 2013.
In the first of a string of international dates to be announced for The Light, this nine date run of the United States along with three dates in Canada sees the band return to cities previously visited, as well as some for the first time, and marks their third tour of North America after dates in December 2010 and September 2011 performing Joy Division’s “Unknown Pleasures” and “Closer” albums.
All of the shows feature full performances of both albums in full, sequential order, which has become a hallmark of The Light’s sets, and will also include singles and B-Sides from the corresponding period including “Everything’s Gone Green”, “Temptation” and “Blue Monday” which New Order generally didn’t include on the releases, preferring their LPs to stand alone in comparison to the singles.
