Peter Hook and his band The Light are coming to First Avenue. At last check some tickets remain available. Details can be found HERE.
Having toured the albums from Hooky’s previous bands for over eight years with multiple tours of the United States and Canada, Peter Hook & The Light have now reached the late Eighties and early Nineties albums of New Order, “Technique” and “Republic” which they will come to perform across fifteen stateside dates in October and November 2019.
Both of the Factory Records albums saw New Order make significant breakthroughs across at Atlantic and in many ways the late Eighties marked a high point with the band as with the support of Quincy Jones’ Q-West label they scored numbers Billboard chart dance hits with “Technique’s” acid house influence before “Republic” was to become their best ever selling album in the US.
This new set for The Light has seen a run of sold out shows in the UK including Camden Electric Ballroom, Manchester’s Albert Hall as well as dates in South America but these late 2019 concerts mark the first time The Light will have performed these LPs in the US and Canada.
So if you were fans of that material, this is going to be a show you don’t want to miss.
