Peter Hook (of Joy Division and New Order) and G

Peter Hook!  He co-founded Joy Division which later morphed into New Order – 2 of my favorite bands!  He was in New York to perform the entire Joy Division album “Unknown Pleasures.”  Prior to the show, I met the legend and he was so nice!  It was very chilly out and he signed 8 New Order CD covers for me! My friend, who is an even bigger JD and NO fan than I, asked him to sign quite a few more things and he gave one of the best replies I’ve EVER heard when it comes to signing autographs.  He said “I’ll sign until I get bored.”  The boredom point was after 16 things!  Wow!  To be that much of a legend and to be so nice makes me love him a million times more (please take note C-list rock stars who will never accomplish a quarter of the things Peter Hook has!)  All I can say to Peter Hook is THANK YOU once again.  You really made my night!

    I had a great time at the show in NYC (SEPT 13 2011). The set list was amazing and they sounded great live, my favorites were Isolation, Heart & soul, Decades, & Atmosphere.After the show I was Lucky enough to go backstage and meet Peter Hook and took some pictures and got some autographs.

    Here is the pic of the Venue

    Here is a pic of the setlist.

    Here is Hook signing some autographs for me.

    This is a little souvineer that I bought for myself at the show for $20, which is not bad at all, usually they are $30

    Sorry that I could not take any pictures during the show, because my camera sucks in the dark.
