In October next year, Hook will also play rescheduled ‘The Sound Of Joy Division Orchestrated’ shows with Manchester Camerata.
Hook first collaborated with the chamber orchestra back in 2019 for a trio of gigs, including a show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, which saw the musicians “revisit the post punk elements that shaped Joy Division’s ground-breaking sound, aligned with a full orchestra to reflect and respect the spirt which defines their heritage”.
