PETER HOOK - Substance: Inside New Order

Saturday 8th October 2016 7:30pm - 9:15pm Symphony Hall Literary Event

THSH and Foyles are proud to present an evening in the company of one of the most iconic musicians of the 70s and 80s, whose role in not one but two seminal bands gives him a unique insight into the groundbreaking music of that era, and the extraordinary personalities behind it.

Having detailed the rise and fall of ‘Madchester’ in The Haçienda and Joy Division’s short career in Unknown Pleasures, legendary bassist, in his new book, Substance: Inside New Order, Peter Hook tells the third, arguably the most important and certainly the most controversial part of his story: the New Order years. In this exclusive Birmingham event Hook shares some of the highs and lows and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from that turbulent and highly creative period.

Please note that your ticket will also entitle you to a copy of Peter Hook's new book (RRP £20), which can be picked up at the Foyles stand at the event.

This event will be signed by a British Sign Language interpreter.
