Unknown Pleasures, A live celebration of Joy Division with Peter Hook & friends, Saturday 2 October at The Powerstation

Thirty years have elapsed since the release of Joy Division’s seminal album ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and the untimely passing of lead singer Ian Curtis. To commemorate this event, legendary bass player and founder Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order, Monaco, Freebass) has put together a group of musicians and friends to play the hugely influential album sequentially and in its entirety – for the first time in New Zealand. This special show will feature all of the songs off the ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album, including ‘Disorder’, ‘Insight’, ‘New Dawn Fades’, ‘She’s Lost Control’, and ‘Shadowplay’, as well as selected early Warsaw / Joy Division tracks, plus the classic non-album singles ‘Transmission’ and ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’. Do not miss this unique opportunity to celebrate Ian Curtis’ life and his contribution to modern music through the resonant sounds of Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’.
