Metropolis Touring Presents An Evening with Peter Hook & The Light performing the legendary Factory Record’s albums ‘Substance’ by Joy Division & New Order. Both albums will be performed sequentially and in their entirety this October in Australia.

"Peter Hook & The Light deliver these songs better than the current line-up of New Order" - Drowned In Sound

Running from "Ceremony" in 1981 up to "True Faith" in 1987 the set takes in the high points of New Order's catalogue, including "Blue Monday", "Bizarre Love Triangle", "Temptation", "True Faith", "The Perfect Kiss" to name a few.

"New Order brought the underground dance sounds of the US to the indie mainstream making them one of the most significant groups ever" - BBC Music

Released in 1988, Joy Division's Substance features all the singles that didn’t appear on the Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer, such as "Love Will Tear Us Apart", "Transmission", and "Atmosphere". Plus their b-sides, tracks from their EP "An Ideal For Living" and a Factory Records sampler.

"perfect snapshot of post-punk legends" - Sputnik Music

This return in 2017 will be the most total appreciation to date of the Joy Division and New Order catalogue.
