Peter Hook to bring Joy Division/New Order ‘Substance’ tour back to North America

Peter Hook & The Light this week announced a 28-date North American tour for the spring of 2018, a trek that once again will see the band performing Joy Division’s and New Order’s classic Substance compilation albums front to back each night.

The tour opens April 26 in Philadelphia and runs through a June 4 stop in St. Petersburg, Fla., hitting dates across the United States and into Canada along the way.

All of those shows will feature the two Substance sets except for a May 18 concert in Los Angeles that will see Hook performing Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer albums.

  1. Glad and surprised he is coming back to Atlanta. Last time, the young hipster crowd was embarrassingly disinterested.

    • Damn. Seriously? I gotta see Hooky. I’m going. We’ll never hear Ian sing the songs again. At least we can hear the real bass riffs still.

  2. just bought my tix for houston. saw him in austin a few years ago. can’t wait!!!!

  3. Hoping there would be a Denver date.

  4. Awesome!!! SLC here I come!! New order’s substance is got to be the best of the best in all music’s past, present, and future!
