Peter Hook kicks off the North American leg of his Substance: Joy Division & New Order tonight in New York. The legendary bassist and his band The Light are performing Substance from Joy Division and New Order at the shows. Those who have seen Hook on his previous Joy Division/New Order album tours know he puts on a stellar and memorable live experience -- he is clearly enjoying every minute of his performance and the crowd feeds off his magnetic energy and excitement. The Substance: Joy Division & New Order tour may just surpass Hook's other tours -- so far the band has staged three performances in the U.K. and the rave reviews continue to pour in from fans and music critics alike. Indeed, fans of Joy Division and New Order are in for a mindblowing three hour show (!!!) filled with classic songs rarely performed in the past.

Several dates on the tour -- including the Chicago (10/28) and Boston shows -- are already sold out, so grab tickets while you can. Tickets for the October 26th show at Saint Andrew's Hall in Detroit are available here.

Fans can get a taste of what's to come on the Substance tour -- this week Hook released a live album titled Substance - Live at the Apollo Manchester. The 3 CD set / digital download is the entire September 16th show captured at the Apollo in Manchester on September 16th. Stream two songs from the live album here, and grab a copy through Live Here Now (the same outfit that released Hook's previous live albums So This Is Permanence, Unknown Pleasures - Live at Goodwood, and the Hebden Bridge Tapes).

Finally, Peter Hook is releasing his new memoir Substance: Inside New Order on October 6th. More info on that is posted here.
