25 September 2013Peter Hook prepares for autumn 2013 UK Tour
The ever-busy bassist has been busy touring the U.S. with complete renditions of the first two New Order albums, Movement and Power, Corruption and Lies. On his return to these shores in the autumn, much to the delight of those who missed his earlier gigs featuring these two classics, Peter Hook and the Light will embark on a UK tour performing the very same albums, as well as b-sides and singles from the era.
Liverpool will be the first stop on 24th October, followed by Leeds, Colchester and several more before finishing up in Belfast on 23rd November.

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
