Peter Hook; author, DJ and former bassist of not one but two essential bands. The post punk architects Joy Division and forerunners of dance music; New Order. Now the world famous bassist is back with his new band Peter Hook & The Light.

Salford lad Peter Woodhead had his surname changed to Hook at the age of 3 due to his mother remarrying following a divorce. Adopting the surname of his stepfather, he would become to be known by friends and eventually fans as Hooky.

Hook formed the band Warsaw after watching Sex Pistols play at Lesser Trade Free Hall with childhood friend Bernard Sumner. Thrilled by the power and energy of the show, he borrowed £35 of his mother the very next day and bought a bass. The band joined the two friends with Steve Morris on drums and vocalist Ian Curtis to become Joy Division.

His unique style of playing the bass developed whilst learning to play through writing their early material. Allowing the instrument to hang low by the straps, Hook found that he was forced to play higher notes in order to hear himself over Sumner’s guitar resulting in what is now his signature sound.

Following the tragic early death of singer and lyricist Curtis, the band would adopt a new name to accompany their new direction. New Order were quick to see the potential of new electronic instrumentation such as synths, drum machines and samplers. The work of Hook and his bandmates would become the first obviously recognisable dance music which would revolutionise contemporary pop.

Peter Hook & The Light started in 2011. Originally it was an EP of reworked Joy Division songs entitled 1102 2011 EP, it soon became a full touring band.

Peter Hook & The Light tickets can be yours today. Book with Gigantic before they are gone.

Just announced, Peter Hook will be touring in Winter of 2017 and will headline at Bristol Marble Factor in November and then play Norwich Waterfront, Salisbury City Hall, The Slade Rooms at Wolverhampton, Manchester Academy and Roundhouse in London during December.
