Having toured the albums from Hooky’s previous bands for over eight years with multiple tours of the United States and Canada, Peter Hook & The Light have now reached the late Eighties and early Nineties albums of New Order, “Technique” and “Republic” which they will come to perform across fifteen stateside dates in October and November 2019.

Both of the Factory Records albums saw New Order make significant breakthroughs across at Atlantic and in many ways the late Eighties marked a high point with the band as with the  support of Quincy Jones’ Q-West label they scored numbers Billboard chart dance hits with “Technique’s” acid house influence before “Republic” was to become their best ever selling album in the US.

This new set for The Light has seen a run of sold out shows in the UK including Camden Electric Ballroom, Manchester’s Albert Hall as well as dates in South America but these late 2019 concerts mark the first time The Light will have performed these LPs in the US and Canada.

The Light have just completed a widely acclaimed world tour performing both “Substance” albums of Joy Division and New Order which saw them visit North and South America. Europe, Australia and New Zealand but these “Technique” and “Republic” concerts mark the band moving forward through the catalogue once more.

As has become their custom, all dates feature The Light performing an opening set of Joy Division material.  Tickets for all dates on sale now. All details are at The Light’s Facebook – – and at
