SUBSTANCE // WORLD TOUR // 2024

It still amazes me how enjoyable it is to play the Substance LPs. The contrast between Joy Division and New Order is very apparent but both complement each other very well. My only frustration is not being able to play more of our records each night. I am totally looking forward to the next phase. So, let’s enjoy some Substance and get ready for the future. Lots of love, Hooky.” [PETER HOOK]

PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT have announced a mammoth run of dates for 2024 taking in full tours of Australia and New Zealand, North America and the UK and Ireland. The live dates will see the band play the Substance albums by Joy Division and New Order in full.

Peter Hook first revisited the seminal Joy Division album Unknown Pleasures back in May 2010 for a commemorative charity concert and has followed it each year by performing subsequent albums from the repertoire of his bands, Joy Division and New Order. Peter Hook & The Light have since moved through each of those albums, culminating in the Factory Records Substance compilations, and recently 

celebrated over four decades of the continuing influence of Joy Division and Ian Curtis with the Joy Division: A Celebration concerts where both of the band’s albums were played in full.

In October this year, the band then played the Substance albums at the biggest ever London concert at the 5300 capacity Eventim Apollo.

Peter Hook’s dedication to his back catalogue has seen him move through Unknown Pleasures, Closer, Still, Movement, Power Corruption & Lies, Low Life, Brotherhood, Technique and Republic to arrive at the point. Having toured these albums extensively, the band have now amassed over 600 concerts.

Among the many highlights since he reintroduced his early repertoire to a legion of new audiences across the world have been appearances at Benicassim, Primavera Sound, Bestival, Kendal Calling, Victorious and Rebellion, alongside sold out gigs and extensive touring in Europe, North and South America, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand to great acclaim from fans and critics alike.

Stirring, emotive and exceptionally impressive; Hooky and the band reinvigorated the old material with real passion

WORD MAGAZINE

5 stars: a fitting tribute to one of the greatest bands Britain has ever produced. Hooky pulled it off, and then some

MAIL ON SUNDAY

While pages and pages of text has been written about how influential Peter Hook’s bass sound is, and how much it defined Joy Division and New Order, he’s also a very compelling front man. Now, over 30 years later, the songs really come to life with a punchier delivery than they ever had on record, with an uber-confident Hook belting them out

ARTROCKER

Best decision I made all year? Quite possibly. My God, man, go see this band. Well played, Mr Hook. Well played.
