Following their first full UK tour in late May/early June of this year, Peter Hook and The Light take “Unknown Pleasures” on the road to a host of new venues across England and Scotland in late November 2012 and early December 2012.
Receiving great reviews and reactions on the early Summer dates including some five star reviews and hugely admiring comments, The Light recent completed performing the trilogy of Joy Division’s official album releases with two “Still” concerts in Manchester in May 2012 and have now come to play every single Joy Division track ever released.
Towards 2013, The Light are then to debut both of the early New order albums, performing “Movement” and “Power, Corruption And Lies” in two London and Manchester concerts taking place at Koko, London on Thursday 17 January and Manchester Cathedral on Friday 18 January 2013.
The Light have toured constantly since first performing “Unknown Pleasures” back in May 2010 and have taken the show across the world to the United States, Canada, Mexico, South America, Australia, New Zealand and practically every European country, drawing crowds that encompass both original fans of the bands and the younger generation influenced by the their material.
Supports on the 2012 dates come from The Shinies at the Coventry, Preston, Leicester, Stoke, Leeds and Newcastle concerts, Tiny Philips at the Southend, Exeter, Norwich, Portsmouth, Gloucester and Brighton gigs and Velveteen Saints across all the Scottish dates.
