Picturedrome Holmfirth - 4th July -

Tokyo York - 5th July -

The weekend of the 4th to 6th July also sees the Tour De France visit both Holmfirth and York as part of its UK excursion.

As has become their custom, The Light will also support themselves at the gig, performing a first set of Joy Division material.

The shows will feature full performances of both albums, in track order, which has become a hallmark of The Light’s sets, and will also include singles and B-Sides from the corresponding period such as “Everything’s Gone Green”, “Temptation” and “Blue Monday” which New Order generally didn’t include on the releases, preferring their LPs to stand alone in comparison to the singles.

Both albums mark the early development of New Order’s sound whilst also, notably on “Movement”, referring back to the Joy Division template. The final album from the band to be produced by Martin Hannett, Movement’s reputation has grown stronger amongst fans since release for its experimentation, Peter Hook taking lead vocals on two of the album's key tracks, opener “Dreams Never End” and the seminal “Doubts Even Here”.

Some thirty years on from its first release, “Power Corruption & Lies” shows the emergence of what is termed the trademark, archetypal New Order sound and was more enthusiastically received than its predecessor with Rolling Stone terming it "a landmark album of danceable, post-punk music”. Containing some of the fans persistent live favourites such as “Age Of Consent” and “Your Silent Face”, as well as the much loved album tracks, “586” and “Leave Me Alone” it was this album that cemented New Order’s reputation and showed a cohesiveness and new found confidence emanating from the band.

The Light “Movement” / “Power, Corruption & Lies” – UK / Ireland Tour 2013 Reviews

Liverpool Echo -

“586went down a storm and was followed up with a mesmerising rendition of the beautiful abstract balladYour Silent Face, its opaque lyrics suspending time and hanging in the air with infinite meaning, somehow intimate and anthemic at the same time. We can only say it again: beautiful.

Having been treated to a handful ofJoy Divisiontracks and two completeNew Orderalbums the gig was well into two hour territory before the encore and we'd have forgiven the band had they started to flag but there was no sign of it. They re-emerged to deliver a hugely energetic take onTemptationwhich to our ears never sounded so good and inevitably the colossus of all crowd-pleasersBlue Monday.

The band left the stage of the amphitheatre style venue with every tier charged with positive energy.”

Louder Than War -

“These songs despite being rooted in the 80’s appear timeless, and that’s down to Hooky’s determination to deliver the tracks with respect but also with the confidence to build upon them. This is New Order reinvigorated, re-energized; Hooky has arguably reclaimed the songs and is delivering them with heart and soul.”

Counterpoint -

“Besides the experience of witnessing an authentic and honest reproduction of the material, a significant element of the show was Peter Hook’s relentless engagement with his instrument; never have I seen anyone play an instrument in such a sustained way for so long. His stage presence and showmanship added to the performance as well; this, combined with equalling dedication from the rest of the Light, resulted in a great documentation – and celebration – of the early days of New Order.”

Irish Independent

“Bruce Springsteen and Leonard Cohen have competition when it comes to marathon concerts. Stepping into the ring is former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook, whose current tour finds him on stage for three hours.”
