Peter Hook and the Light will perform both New Order and Joy Division's famed Substance compilations on a North American tour next fall.

The trek will open with a two-night stand at Webster Hall in New York City on September 22nd and 23rd, followed by a September 24th gig at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. Hook and the Light will then return to the road on October 27th at Saint Andrew's Hall in Detroit for a full North American leg that wraps November 29th at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto.

Ticket information for the Substance tour has yet to be announced, though future details will be available via Hook's website. A complete list of dates is below.

The two Substance compilations were released in 1987 and 1988 by Factory Records. New Order's arrived first and featured the 12-inch mixes and b-sides of all their singles up to that point and was concocted by Factory boss Tony Wilson so he could listen to the tracks on the CD player in his new car.

The 1988 Joy Division comp boasted the band's four non-album singles — "Transmission," "Komakino," "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "Atmosphere" — as well as b-sides and songs included on two Factory Records samplers and their debut EP, An Ideal for Living.

Hook also has a string of international concerts already scheduled for 2016, some of which find him recreating Joy Division's two LPs, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, while others will feature New Order's Low-Life and Brotherhood.
