Having just wrapped up a widely celebrated tour, the band are to perform in Norwich, Salisbury, Bristol, Wolverhampton and Wakefield with a massive end of year tour homecoming concert also just announced for Manchester Academy 1.

In addition, a special London return has been announced as The Light's final show of the year at The Roundhouse, Camden where they will be playing Joy Divisions' two albums in full along with a support set of New Order material.

Critical reaction from fans and media alike have been very strong with many commenting on the strength of the shows and performances. The debut Manchester Apollo show was awarded five stars from the Manchester Evening News - "the place is packed and the atmosphere electric" - and similar reviews and reactions have followed the band on their travels so far.

"In the two-and-a-half hours Peter Hook & The Light were on stage, it was hard to fathom how many hits New Order and Joy Division had. Just within the first hour, there were enough songs that some artists today wish they could both write and have in their arsenal. That is what great chemistry in a band does." Huffington Post

"A brilliant night, a celebration of the music of Joy Division and New Order. That is Hooky's mission and this was easily mission accomplished." Everything Flows

"A real treat." LA Record

About Substance

Released in August 1987, New Order's Substance was originally conceived as a way for Factory Records boss, Tony Wilson, to play the New Order singles on the CD player of his new Jaguar car. Substance became the best selling New Order album ever upon its release, the double LP going on to sell 2 million copies in America alone.

Widely considered New Order's strongest album, "their most popular, well known, highly rated and arguably the most influential" (Sputnik Music), Factory Records' 200th release featured the bands seminal 12" mixes of their singles as well as versions of ‘Confusion’ and Temptation re-recorded for the LP.

Running from "Ceremony" in 1981 up to "True Faith" in 1987 (again recorded especially for the album), the set takes in the high points of New Order's catalogue, including "Temptation", "Thieves Like Us", "The Perfect Kiss" and "Bizarre Love Triangle".

Released the following year in July 1988, Joy Division's Substance features all the singles which did not appear on the albums such as "Transmission", "Komakino", "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "Atmosphere", as well as their b-sides, tracks from their EP "An Ideal For Living" and the Factory Records sampler.

Factory Records' 250th release, it begins with "Warsaw" and takes in the development of the band through "Digital" and "Dead Souls" to the band's final tracks. The collection demonstrates the same energy as a full length LP with several key B-sides added.

Allmusic called it "the best adjunct to the two albums anyone could want."

Peter Hook & The Light have toured Joy Division and New Order's albums extensively since debuting "Unknown Pleasures" back in 2010 with dates all across the world which have been very well received by critics and fans alike.
