Ex-Happy Mondays singer Rowetta will also join bassist for two homecoming shows in November

Peter Hook is set to play Joy Division‘s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’ in their entirety for two homecoming shows in November.

The former New Order bassist will perform both of the albums each night at The Lowry Theatre with his band, Peter Hook’s The Light, in Salford on November 18 and 19.

Former Happy Mondays singer Rowetta will also perform with the band at both shows. For more information about the gigs go to Thelowry.com.

The bassist recently announced his dismay after former members of New Order
Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert revealed that they are to reform for two benefit shows this year without him.

The gigs, which are booked to take place at Brussels Ancienne Belgique on October 17 and Paris La Bataclan the following night, are taking place to help with medical expenses for sick friend Michael Shamberg.

Relations between the remaining members and their former bassist have been bitter since Hook left for the final time in 2007.
