Peter Hook and the Light To Perform Joy Division & New Order’s Classic ‘Substance’ Compilations for Fall U.S. Tour

Peter Hook & The Light are returning to North America in Fall 2016 to perform Joy Division and New Order’s legendary Factory Records compilation albums Substance live, sequentially and in their entireties.

The first leg of the tour sees a trio of shows as The Light return to New York for two dates at Webster Hall Thurs 22nd and Fri 23rd Sept and then a Los Angeles date on Sat 24th Sept. These are the first dates for the performances following the debut concerts taking place the previous week. Check the full list of dates below.

Hooky and the band then return to the United States and Canada for the second leg of the tour in late October for twenty four dates in total which see the band remain on tour until late November, playing cities they have visited before as well as some new additions including Milwaukee, Salt Lake City, Atlanta, and Fort Lauderdale.



Released in August 1987, New Order’s Substance was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became the best selling New Order album ever upon its release, the double LP going on to sell 2 million copies in America alone.

Widely considered New Order’s strongest album, “their most popular, well known, highly rated and arguably the most influential” (Sputnik Music), Factory Records’ 200th release featured the bands seminal 12″ mixes of their singles as well as versions of ‘Confusion’ and Temptation re-recorded for the LP.

Running from “Ceremony” in 1981 up to “True Faith” in 1987 (again recorded especially for the album), the set takes in the high points of New Order’s catalogue, including “Temptation”, “Thieves Like Us”, “The Perfect Kiss” and “Bizarre Love Triangle”.

Released the following year in July 1988, Joy Division’s Substance features all the singles which did not appear on the albums such as “Transmission”, “Komakino”, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” and “Atmosphere”, as well as their b-sides, tracks from their EP “An Ideal For Living” and the Factory Records sampler.

Peter Hook & The Light have toured Joy Division and New Order’s albums extensively since debuting “Unknown Pleasures” back in 2010 with dates all across the world which have been very well received by critics and fans alike.
