HOOKY BACK AT THE FACTORY IN MAY

The Factory £20.12 (inc charity donation)

Salford's Peter Hook is set to complete a two year trilogy of Joy Division releases when he performs the band's third double album Still for the first time at The Factory in May.

Peter Hook And The Light have already toured the first two Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer to critical acclaim, and Still completes the set. Tickets are on sale now.

Full details here…


Joy Division's third and final album, Still, was released as a double disc in October 1981, following the death of Ian Curtis. It comprised of studio out-takes and unreleased tracks, plus a live recording of the band's last ever concert at High Hall, Birmingham on 2nd May 1980.

Now Hooky with his band Peter Hook And The Light is to bring it all back, performing the whole album live, including replicating the final Joy Division concert, as featured on Still. The tour begins with two dates at The Factory in May, to complete the set as The Light have been touring the first two Joy Division albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer all over the world for the last two years.

"It's somewhat bittersweet since I honestly wish there were more to go really but I am very happy that now with Still I will have played every Joy Division song ever written, again" says Hooky "I am delighted that The Light are performing Joy Division's final release in what seems set to be the final Light / Joy Division gigs in Manchester and I'm looking forward to a couple of great concerts to finish up the trilogy properly."

The ticket price for both Factory gigs includes a donation to two charities – Mind, the mental health charity, and Forever Manchester, which supports community initiatives.
