Peter Hook brings out Mark Lanegan to play Joy Division’s “Atmosphere”: Watch

on December 20, 2017, 2:15pm

Peter Hook has been staging full performances of New Order’s and Joy Division’s Substance compilations as part of his ongoing UK/European tour with The Light. During a concert in London on Monday, the new wave pioneer paid tribute to his late bandmate Ian Curtis by bringing out special guest Mark Lanegan to play a cover of “Atmosphere”.

“One of the great things about this job is that I get to play with my heroes,” Hook said as the former Screaming Trees frontman joined him on stage. “I want to dedicate this song to Ian Curtis.” Watch the fan-shot footage above.

Lanegan remained on stage to perform the “Atmosphere” B-side, “Dead Souls”. Check it out below.

In April, Peter Hook and the Light will kick off a North American leg of the Substance tour. Additionally, on May 18th in Los Angeles, they will play a standalone performance of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures and Closer to commemorate the 38th anniversary of Curtis’ death.
