Peter Hook & The Light Australia and New Zealand tour of New Order's “Low Life” and “Brotherhood”begins tonight at The Astor Theatre in Perth in the first of ten dates.
As well as the albums in full, the set features the band’s singles and b-sides 1983 to 1987 and includes such seminal tracks as “Thieves Like Us”, “The Perfect Kiss”, "True Faith" and "Bizarre Love Triangle.” As is now tradition, Hooky and the band also open for themselves with a set of Joy Division material.
“A masterclass in euphoria and heartache in equal measure... Delving into over 30 songs stretching back to the 70s, Hooky and his current outfit performed the entirety of Low-Life and Brotherhood - two records that helped shape and define post-punk and synthpop. The result was two hours teeming with heartbreak and affection.” Gigwise
