Joy Division Orchestrated: The Royal Albert Hall, 5/7/2019

Who’d have thought the spotty teenager stood mouth agape at Manchester Apollo in 1978 as Joy Division pretty much blew The Buzzcocks off the stage, would be stood in the Royal Albert hall 40 years later  waiting on Peter Hook and his band of merry men, coupled to the Manchester camerata to take the stage?
