Peter Hook and the Light tour 2022 announced: Peter Hook and the Light will tour North America next year, playing two Joy Division classics, Unknown Pleasures and Closer.
The 26-date Joy Division: A Celebration North American tour kicks off with two concerts at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall on August 11 and 12. It will conclude at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver on September 14. The "Joy Division: A Celebration" tour will take place next fall and include a total of 26 dates. After kicking off Aug. 11 in Toronto, Canada, Peter Hook & The Light will perform in major cities including Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. The tour will conclude on September 14 in Vancouver, Canada.
In addition to Unknown Pleasures and Closer in their entirety, Hook and the Light will perform Joy Division's early Warsaw material, tracks from their Still compilation and the band's final songs - "Ceremony" and "In a Lonely Place" - later released by New Order. Hook and the Light will open the shows with a selection of New Order songs. Peter Hook & The Light currently have over 80 shows scheduled for 2021-2022, bringing their post-punk and new wave energy to fans around the world. This includes a series of festivals in the UK next month, performances in New Zealand in November, and then a string of UK and European shows from January through August.
Fans can look forward to hearing two of Joy Division's most important albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, in their entirety, as well as other popular rarities and a debut set of material from New Order. Fortunately, Peter Hook & The Light will be in good shape for these dates, having already completed the UK leg of the tour when they fly to North America in late 2022.
