Meanwhile, Peter Hook and the Light are due to play York Barbican on Thursday, October 10.

In York they will perform the Substance complication album – featuring hits from Joy Division and New Order – in full. 

Ahead of the tour, Peter said: “It still amazes me how enjoyable it is to play the Substance LPs. The contrast between Joy Division and New Order is very apparent but both complement each other very well.

“My only frustration is not being able to play more of our records each night.”
