Peter Hook has announced that he will play Joy Division’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ album in full at this year’s 1234 Festival.
Taking place in London’s Shoreditch Park on July 24, the bassist will perform with his band The Light.
Last month, Hook played ‘Unknown Pleasures’ at Manchester’s FAC 251 in tribute to his late Joy Division bandmate Ian Curtis.
In a statement, the bassist revealed that this will be “the only time and the only place” in this country that he will play his former group’s 1979 classic album in its entirety.
As previously reported, Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie will perform a one-off set at the bash under the name Silver Machine, alongside Sex Pistols’ Glen Matlock and The Who and former Oasis drummer Zak Starky.
