Peter Hook Planning To Play Joy Division Tribute Concert Without Other Members Of Joy Division

    Former New Order and Joy Division bass-wielder Peter Hook has announced plans to play Joy Division’s seminal debut album, Unknown Pleasures, in its entirety to mark the 30th anniversary of frontman Ian Curtis’ death. The only problem? Dude isn’t inviting Stephen Morris or Bernard Sumner, aka the other two living members of Joy Division, because he is still fighting them over the direction of New Order. Hook is planning to perform the album with the help of a variety of unnamed “guests” on May 18, in Manchester, so get your tickets. Apparently this is the English post-punk band version of touring county fairs. [NME]
