Peter Hook and The Light will perform two more concerts for Mind
Posted Friday 21 December 2012
The band are to debut their performances of the first two albums released by New Order, “Movement” (1981) and “Power Corruption And Lies” (1983) with two unique, inaugural London and Manchester concerts in January 2013.
The first concert is at the legendary Koko in London and the second a distinctive and special event, taking place at Manchester Cathedral.
Alongside the performances of the albums in full and in sequential order, which has become one of the hallmarks of The Light’s live performances to date, the band are also set to revisit the many classic singles of 1981 to 1983 including “Ceremony”, “Everything’s Gone Green”, “Temptation” and “Blue Monday” which New Order generally refused to include on the albums, considering the LPs should stand alone in comparison to the single releases.
As with the previous debut album concerts by The Light, money made through ticket sales for the gigs will be donated to Mind, to help support the one in four people who experience a mental health problem every year.
