Peter Hook to Orchestrate Joy Division In Australia

by Paul Cashmere on April 12, 2019

in News

Former Joy Division/New Order founder Peter Hook will tour Australia with the Metropolitan Orchestra in August.

“Peter Hook & The Metropolitan Orchestra present Joy Division Orchestrated” will feature the music of Joy Division curated by Peter Hook acting as Executive Producer with Musical Director Tim Crooks taking care of the orchestration.

Hook performed an orchestrated concert in Sydney for Vivid Live in 2013.

In a statement Peter Hook said, “When we began to celebrate Joy Division with The Light in 2010, Australia was one of our first international visits. Our seventh gig came in Melbourne and as always down under, the reactions were amazing. Over the years I’ve come to love visiting Australia more and more, the people are wonderfully hospitable and to be able to bring the show here, straight from the Royal Albert Hall, is a tremendous honour.

“In my recent work with orchestras, I realised that my first group could also lend itself to this treatment. Post punk is already dramatic, this will accentuate and take it to another performing and emotional level. “

“I’ve been very impressed with how our arranger Tim Crooks works and I know the band’s canon will be treated with great reverence and care, enthusiasm and passion as the originals were. I know everyone involved will be adding something very special.”
