In 2011 New Order reunited for some live shows in Paris, London, and South America, but WITHOUT key member Peter Hook. Hooky was pretty mad about not being asked to participate and made some cheeky comments on his official website and to the media, but at the end of the day, the New Order reunion went on without him.
"Temptation" New Order WITHOUT Peter Hook

By the way, New Order will release a live recording of their December 10th concert as a 2-cd set Live At The London Troxy in January.
Don't feel too bad for Hooky because he wasn't sitting around at home doing nothing. In the fall he toured North America with his band the Light and performed classic Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures & Closer. Some surprise guest vocalists even showed up at a few of the shows to sing the encore:
"Transmission/Love Will Tear Us Apart" Peter Hook & the Light w/ Billy Corgan
"A Means To An End" Peter Hook & the Light w/ Moby
"Isolation" Peter Hook & the Light w/ Perry Farrell
