Peter Hook Goes Mano-A-Mano With New Order

Love will tear us apart – again!

More proof that the brand name known as New Order (with a side brand of Joy Division, natch) comes in the way of today’s announcement of a new Peter Hook & The Light tour. It will include select overseas dates during the summer then move to North America starting in mid September, in which the erstwhile N.O. bassist is set to perform classic albums Movement (1981) and Power, Corruption & Lies (1983) in their entirety. Given Hook’s facility for doing Joy Division sets previously with his new band (and the Chicago date, 9/15, will in fact be a J.D. set), it’s entirely possible that he will eclipse his erstwhile/estranged N.O. bandmates, who will be touring during the summer. Meow!
