Peter Hook is coming back to the States — and he’s got some New Order records to play for us. The legendary bassist and his band the Light is continuing his live run through the Joy Division catalog this fall, taking on 1985 Brotherhood and 1986 Lowlife. The tour, which covers some of New Order’s most celebrated work, from 1983 to 1987, comes to Boston’s Royale on November 8.
Hooky’s Unknown Pleasures tour played the Tremont Street venue back in December 2010, and you can watch footage of that show up top. This fall he’ll also be playing Joy Division songs, as his own Slaves of Venus will be opening the evening.
In addition to both New Order records played in their entirety for this upcoming jaunt, other singles and b-sides will also be worked into the mix. Among the notable tracks from this era include “Thieves Like Us,” “Bizarre Love Triangle,” “The Perfect Kiss,” and “True Faith.”
This should be a good time.
