New Order Announce London Show in December

Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris

New Order have announced they will be performing at London’s Troxy venue on Saturday 10th December – without bassist Peter Hook in the group.

Taking Hook’s place will be new addition Tom Chapman, while keyboardist Gillian Gilbert (who returned to the group in 2011 for two benefit concerts after a ten year hiatus) will once again join founding members Bernard Sumner (vocals) and Stephen Morris (drums) in what will be New Order’s first U.K. show since October 2006.

Peter Hook has expressed his displeasure with regards to the group reforming without him. In an interview with Spinner earlier this year, Hook said:

“What they’ve done to me, to tour as New Order, is frankly disgusting…”

Hook is currently on tour with his band, The Light, who have been playing Joy Division’s Closer as part of their shows.

Tickets for the New Order show will be made available from Friday 4th November at 9.30 AM (GMT)
