The good news is Peter Hook will tour Australia. The bad news … it’s a year away.

Peter Hook & The Light will perform the Joy Division: A Celebration tour in Australia in February and March 2022.

The shows will focus on Hook’s two Joy Division albums ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’.

‘Unknown Pleasures’ was the first of the two Joy Division albums. It was released 15 June 1979. The second and final Joy Division album ‘Closer’ was released on 18 July 1980 just two months after the suicide of singer Ian Curtis on 18 May 1980.
