another geezer rock show only i go to sept 15th

Beginning their “Movement” and “Power, Corruption & Lies” world tour following select, sold out UK dates in early 2013, Peter Hook & The Light are to begin their acclaimed performances of the first two New Order albums first to North American audiences with a string of dates in September 2013.
This is the third full tour undertaken by The Light following their very well received live appearances performing the Joy Division albums “Unknown Pleasures” in December 2010 and “Closer” in September 2011 whilst Hooky himself enjoyed a successful author tour in the United States in February this year following the publication of “Unknown Pleasures – Inside Joy Division” which made the New York Times Bestseller list the same month.
Since the launch of the tour, further dates have been added in Ferndale, Michigan and Austin, Texas, so The Light begin in Boston, 10th September, taking in Ferndale, New York, Philadelphia, Riot Fest in Chicago where the band perform a tour exclusive Joy Division set, Austin, Montreal, Toronto, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Decibel Festival in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and finishing in Denver 28th September.
For fans in Chicago and those attending Riot Fest, it has just been announced that The Light will also perform both of the New Order albums at an aftershow the night of the festival at Double Door in the windy city on Sunday 15th September.
Following their North American tour, The Light decamp to South America with dates in Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Peru before returning to the UK and Europe for their first full tours of the albums.
As with The Light’s previous shows, both of the seminal albums are to be performed in full, sequential order and will also include all of the singles and B-sides from New Order’s early period including the post Joy Division debut single “Ceremony” and “In A Lonely Place”, the raw, futuristic “Everything’s Gone Green” and the band’s two breakthrough hits which came between the two albums, “Temptation” and “Blue Monday”.
Looking to reproduce the albums and materially as faithfully as possible, on “Movement” The Light stay true to the techniques and tricks employed by Martin Hannett on the final album he was to produce for Hooky and co. “Movement’s reputation has grown stronger amongst fans since release for its experimentation showing the bridge between Joy Division’s and New Order’s material and Peter Hook took vocals on two of the album's key tracks, opener “Dreams Never End” and the seminal “Doubts Even Here”.
“New Order produced a ghostly, brittle record, occasionally uptempo but never upbeat, with drum machines rattling and echoing over dark waves of synthesizers and Hook's basswork. A masterpiece in the career of any other post-punk band.” All Music
With 2013 marking three decades since it was released, whereas Movement is considered a Joy Division record with New Order vocals, “Power Corruption & Lies’” use of emerging electronic sounds was regarded as a great leap forward and a revolution in sound for the band, especially when with the international hit that was “Blue Monday” released the same year.
Widely critically praised, Rolling Stone termed “Power, Corruption & Lies” “a landmark album of danceable, post-punk music”, and the album contains many of the fans favourite LP tracks including the soulful, organic “Age Of Consent” and the sublime electronic ballad “Your Silent Face”, as well as the technologically advanced “586” and “The Village” while it ends with Hooky’s favourite ever New Order track “Leave Me Alone”.
“New Order could craft songs on two opposite ends of the mood spectrum, with almost equal adeptness. Power, Corruption & Lies was a huge leap forward for New Order, and remains one of the most affecting and influential alternative albums of its era.” Sputnik Music

I struggled with New Order as I was so into Joy Division that i had a hard time with the fact of Ian being gone that to me, they sounded "off" - I still get goose bumps when I watch "Control" and prob listen to Joy Division at least once a week

I did like what Pete Hook did with The Stone Roses and I think he was trying to re-open 'The Factory" - What a great time to be a Mod in the UK
