In the third instalment in the trilogy series of tours, Peter Hook and The Light never failed to deliver the goods with both New Order & Joy Division's 'Substance' albums.
The London post-punk/new wave era of the late 70’s early 80’s was a foundational period for the disparate music scene that emerged from the seminal punk movement. Among the groups to emerge were a group called Warsaw, who were to become Joy Division, and subsequently New Order.
Former Joy Division and New Order founder Peter Hook is back in Australia with his band ‘The Light’ to perform New Order’s Low Life and Brotherhood albums live in a celebration of not only the music of New Order, but where it all started from- Joy Division!
About to hit Australia for the first time since 2009, Peter Hook is once again bringing his band ‘The Light’ to Australia along with his signature bass lines in a celebration of his New Order era and in particular the third and fourth albums Brotherhood and Low Life.
Congratulations, Future Music 2012. You have the distinction of being the loudest, craziest, dustiest and most in-yer-face music festival I’ve been to thus far. Nearly 30,000 people packed into Ellis Park on Monday, March 12 - proof enough that with the right day, the right venue and most importantly, a stellar line-up, revellers in Adelaide actually buy tickets to music festivals (take note, Big Day Out).
With summer blasting off for another year, the countdown to Australia’s biggest celebration, Future Music Festival 2012, has officially begun.
