Peter Hook & The Light will headline the much-anticipated Friday night of this year’s Middlewich FAB Festival on 15th June.
Famed for being the founding member of legendary 70s and 80s post-punk, alternative rock bands Joy Division and New Order, Peter Hook has had an abundance of hits.
These include Love Will Tear Us Apart, Blue Monday (the biggest selling 12-inch of all time) and True Faith from the platinum album Substance.
Peter Hook & The Light have toured Joy Division and New Order’s albums extensively since debuting “Unknown Pleasures” back in 2010.
Mayor of Middlewich, Cllr Samantha Moss commented: “Middlewich Town Council strives to make Middlewich FAB Festival a fun, enjoyable, family experience for everyone to partake in.
“I am very proud that Peter Hook & The Light is the headline act for Friday night’s concert this year, especially as he is a Cheshire resident. It’s a great way to celebrate our regional music talent.”
Cllr Moss added: “Everyone is very excited that we will host such a fantastic musician who has been hugely influential in music for over four decades and continues to inspire young musicians today.
“This is sure to help draw even bigger crowds from outside our area to boost Middlewich’s economy during FAB festival.”
