Peter Hook and The Light Revisit Joy Division

Monday, 29 August 2011

Peter Hook will be playing Joy Division’s 1980 final album Closer in its entirety at San Francisco’s Mezzanine on September 17, 2011. The former Joy Division and New Order bassist will be appearing with his band The Light and, at select venues, will be performing the landmark Unknown Pleasures which was released in 1979. With two seminal albums such as these, it’s a hard call to decide which show to see given that both are such essential chapters in the history of independent music.
