Peter Hook returns to perform Joy Division album Closer

After the success of his 2010 Unknown Pleasures 30th Anniversary Tour, Joy Division bassist, PETER HOOK, will return in 2012 with his band THE LIGHT, to play songs from CLOSER – back to back – with shows in Wellington and Auckland. The tour is a celebration of the legacy of the music of Joy Division who, in just three and half years together, became one of the most formidable and influential bands in musical history. CLOSER for many reasons is one of the greatest records ever released.

Although the band was to last only three and a half years with the tragic suicide of Joy Division lead singer, Ian Curtis in May 1980, the Martin Hannett produced seminal second and final album CLOSER was released two months later, becoming an instant classic across fans and critics.
