Celebrating one of the most influential bands in music history, Joy Division’s legendary bassist Peter Hook & Manchester Camerata are set for September 2021 dates for their acclaimed “The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated” collaboration.
The dates include their first ever Manchester concert at the O2 Apollo, along with an appearance at the historic London Palladium.
Having sold out both Sydney Opera House and London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2019 and with concerts being postponed last year, these events represent the first time the show has been brought to the band’s hometown, in the second run of the critically acclaimed shows.
Curated by Peter Hook alongside musical director Tim Crooks, “The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated” brings together over 50 artists, musicians and guest vocalists to revisit the post punk elements that shaped Joy Division’s ground breaking sound, aligned with a full orchestra to reflect and respect the spirit which defines their heritage.
About the first dates, Peter Hook said: “This has to be one of the most nerve-wracking things I have ever done. To sell out the Royal Albert Hall before anyone had even heard it was a fantastic compliment it has to be said. The reaction has been wonderful and this time around I’m looking forward to being able to enjoy it myself. To bring it to Manchester for the first time will be very, very special.”
Musical director, Tim Crooks, added; “It’s great news that we’ll be bringing this amazing show to The Palladium and The Apollo, two of my favourite ever venues. As musicians we’ve all missed being able to perform over the last year, just as fans have missed their favourite gigs. Let’s hope these concerts promise a long-awaited release for everybody there.”
