Featuring Peter Hook
- Friday, 9 Aug 2019 - 8PM
The group's original bassist Peter Hook, The Metropolitan Orchestra & guests come together to perform the catalogue of one of the world's most celebrated bands.
Celebrating one of the most influential bands ever, Joy Division's legendary bass player Peter Hook, including special guests and a full orchestra will put the group's most famous works in an immersive show that recognises their role in shaping popular culture and the influence they continue to hold.
Curated by Hook and with Musical Director Tim Crooks taking care of the orchestration, the concerts are the first time that an original member of the group has taken part in such a project.
Joy Division Orchestrated pairs up musically the elements of post-punk that characterised Joy Division's ground-breaking sound, with the orchestration - paying homage to the spirit which defines their heritage.
Given the band's iconic legacy, the arrangements of classical Joy Division will be presented in a state-of-the-art setting with the highest standards of production.
The band's landmark tracks are to be featured in Joy Division Orchestrated, including from the band's debut album Unknown Pleasures - considered by many the finest debut release by any group. Meanwhile the follow-up Closer is described as a "start to finish masterpiece" (Pitchfork).
A night of nostalgia not to be missed!
