Peter Hook tour

Former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook has yet to debut his new show featuring full front-to-back performances of the latter group’s third and fourth albums — 1985’s Low-Life and 1986’s Brotherhood — but he’s already announcing plans to bring it to North America for a 14-date tour this November.

Hook will follow up a pair of previously announced “From Confusion to Truth Faith” U.K. gigs this September with the North American dates, which run from Nov. 4 in Austin, Texas, to Nov. 22 in Los Angeles.

The shows will include performances of both albums plus singles and B-sides from what Hook calls New Order’s “most prolific period,” spanning August 1983 up to 1987, including “Thieves Like Us,'” “State of the Nation,” “Love Vigilantes,” “Bizarre Love Triangle,” “The Perfect Kiss” and more.

Hook also will open for himself, performing a set of Joy Division songs.

In recent years, Hook has toured Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer albums as well as New Order’s Movement and Power, Corruptions & Lies.
