Peter Hook to Perform All 48 Joy Division Songs at Intimate Show

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Peter Hook will perform a one-off show in Macclesfield, UK featuring all 48 Joy Division songs.

Hook is planning the show titled So This Is Permanence to mark the 35th anniversary of the death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis.

Only 470 tickets will be available for the one-time event at Christ Church in Macclesfield on May 18. Curtis died on May 18, 1980 and was cremated at Macclesfield Crematorium.

Joy Division recorded two albums, Unknown Pleasure (1979) and Closer (1980). The compilations Still and Substance were released after Curtis died.

After the death of Curtis, Joy Division continued with a name change to New Order. Hook left New Order in 2007.

Peter Hook will perform So This Is Permanence with The Light, the band with which he recently toured Australia.
