Peter Hook & The Light are coming to Norwich next month to headline The Waterfront on December 7.

Formed back in 2010 by Peter Hook, former Joy Division and New Order bassist, the band are set to play a run of December dates around the UK where they will perform both Substance albums.

After wrapping up a widely celebrated tour, the band are to perform in Norwich, Salisbury, Bristol, Wolverhampton and Wakefield with a massive end of year tour homecoming concert also announced for Manchester Academy 1.

In addition, a special London return was announced as The Light’s final show of the year at The Roundhouse, Camden where they will be playing Joy Divisions’ two albums in full along with a support set of New Order material.

Critical reaction from fans and media alike have been very strong with many commenting on the strength of the shows and performances. The debut Manchester Apollo show was awarded five stars from the Manchester Evening News and similar reviews and reactions have followed the band on their travels so far.

“In the two-and-a-half hours Peter Hook & The Light were on stage, it was hard to fathom how many hits New Order and Joy Division had. Just within the first hour, there were enough songs that some artists today wish they could both write and have in their arsenal. That is what great chemistry in a band does,” said critics the Huffington Post.

Tickets are still available for the Norwich show from the UEA Box Office and from their website for the rest of their tour.

December tour dates:

1 - The Academy in Dublin

2 - Limelight in Belfast

7 - The Waterfront in Norwich

8 - City Hall in Salisbury

9 - The Marble Factory in Bristol

14 - The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton

15 - Academy 1 in Manchester

16 - Warehouse23 in Wakefield

18 - Roundhouse in London
