The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated

Celebrating one of the most influential bands in music history, Joy Division’s legendary bassist Peter Hook & Manchester Camerata, release dates for their September 2021 concerts for their acclaimed “The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated” collaboration. It will perform its first ever Manchester concert at O2 Apollo Manchester and appear 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 and they are only the second run of concerts for a powerful show which has met with great praise from long term fans and media alike.
 
Curated by Hooky alongside musical director Tim Crooks. “The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated” sees some fifty plus artists, musicians and guest vocalists come together 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.
“The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated” is the first time a founder member of the group has developed such a project, pouring heart and soul into the orchestral representations of the band’s post punk repertoire as the set takes in many seminal Joy Division classics as well some less well known tracks from the canon.
 
About the first dates, Peter Hook commented:
“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.”
 
As a band tragically ended just on the eve of their first American tour in May 1980, Joy Division's influence has grown remarkably since and remains ever present, with fans of all generations and the many contemporary bands who have taken on the template of the band's sound in the modern era.
