Comments : No one could ever replace Ian Curtis and no one can replace Peter Hook either. I was really sceptical about this one actually, but I am so happy to be wrong. It was a really great concert despite the absence of Peter Hook (both for his stage presence and his bass skills). The band has no new album to support so it was nothing but songs I wanted to hear by New Order. The show ended with 3 Joy Divison songs. I missed Peter Hook the most at this point. The versions were much less emotional than those we saw Peter Hook play a couple of years back. Still, a really great show.
