Peter Hook is back doing what Peter Hook loves most – captivating audiences.

Since revisiting Joy Division’s seminal “Unknown Pleasures” in May 2010, Peter Hook & The Light have performed more than 150 shows.

The band are now turning their attention to New Order’s early years, playing first two albums “Movement” (1981) and “Power, Corruption & Lies” (1983) in their entirety during a tour of North and South America before returning to the UK where they will play Preston 53 Degrees on Thursday, October 31st.

The final album with legendary producer Martin Hannett at the helm, “Movement” initially received a lukewarm response but has become a solid favourite over the years while “Power Corruption & Lies”, saw the emergence of the trademark New Order sound as the band cemented their reputation.

These albums take centre stage but fan favourites from that era including “Everything’s Gone Green”, “Temptation” and “Blue Monday” will also get an airing on the night.

And the Burnley Express along with 53 Degrees are offering one lucky reader the chance to be there by winning a pair of tickets to the show.
