Joy Division’s Peter Hook to support CALM with anniversary gigs

Alongside his band The Light, Peter Hook – the bass player from the legendary Joy Division – is playing two HUGE anniversary gigs next year and will donate to CALM from ticket sales. 

Hooky will perform ‘Joy Division: A Celebration’ at the O2 Academy Brixton and O2 Apollo Manchester on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 May 2020 to commemorate four decades of the group’s and Ian Curtis’ continuing influence. Both gigs will see them perform Joy Division’s classic records ‘Unknown Pleasures’ and ‘Closer’ in full.

CALM’s founding trustee was Tony Wilson, who signed Joy Division to his Factory Records label. Joy Division’s singer, Ian Curtis, tragically took his own life in 1980.

A portion of the proceeds from the shows will be donated to CALM and Epilepsy Society.

Tickets for the performances are on sale now:
