Peter Hook and The Light will play an intimate mental health fundraiser at The Star and Garter in Manchester, one of the city’s best-loved independent live music venues.
The event will take place in memory of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis who tragically lost his life to suicide back in May 1980 – and takes places 7-months after a mural of the singer was painted on the side of the Grade II-listed venue.
The one-off event is presented by Headstock, and will see Peter Hook, founding member of Joy Division & New Order, take part in a hosted Q&A, discussing his time with Joy Division, as well as his close friendship with Ian Curtis. Later in the evening, Hook will be joined on stage by his band to play an exclusive Joy Division set to just 200 lucky fans.
Proceeds from the event will go to support mental health charity, Shout (15% will go to Headstock to cover event production costs).
Due to limited capacity at the venue (200), tickets will be allocated via a ticket ballot. Each successful ballot entrant will be allocated 2x tickets to the event.
