Celebrating one of the most influential bands in music history, Joy Division’s legendary bassist Peter Hook and Manchester Camerata are set for September 2021 dates for their acclaimed The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated collaboration. You can look forward to the first-ever Manchester concert at O2 Apollo Manchester as well as the historic London Palladium a little further south.

Peter Hook and Manchester Camerata are collaborating for their acclaimed The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated collaboration this September

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 this intensely powerful show which has met with great praise from long term fans and media alike.

Over fifty artists, musicians, and guest vocalists come together to revisit the post-punk elements that shaped Joy Division

Curated by Hooky alongside musical director Tim Crooks. The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated sees fifty-plus artists, musicians, and guest vocalists come together to revisit the post-punk elements that shaped Joy Division’s groundbreaking sound, aligned with a full orchestra to reflect and respect the spirit which defines their heritage.
