English rock band Peter Hook & the Light have announced a North America tour for next year. They will be playing two classic Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, in their entirety.
The 26-date “Division: A Celebration tour” will kick off with two shows at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on August 11 and 12 and conclude on September 14 at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
Besides playing Unknown Pleasures and Closer, the band will also perform Joy Division’s early Warsaw material, tracks from their compilation Still, and the final songs the band wrote –“Ceremony” and “In a Lonely Place.”
“The albums are played sequentially in track order, respecting the inspiration and impact of the stunning debut album Unknown Pleasures and the immaculately produced second Closer,” a release announcing the tour explains.
