Former Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook will be performing the music of both of his old bands on a North American tour next year.

For the outing, Hook and his band The Light will be playing Joy Division’s two studio albums, 1979’s Unknown Pleasures and 1980’s Closer, in full, along with various singles and B-sides. That’ll be the main set; the opener will be Hook playing a collection of New Order material.

The tour will begin August 11 in Toronto, and will wind its way through the U.S. before wrapping up back in Canada with a Vancouver show on September 14. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 22.
