Close your eyes and experience the true intensity of an authentic Joy Division concert! During the 'Closer To Curtis' tour 2020, Dutch sensation Joy Division Undercover will give a cool live show in Neushoorn in honor of the iconic post-punk band.

Joy Division singer Curtis should have turned 65 in 2021. Unfortunately, in 1980, in a time of economic crisis, black clothing, cold war and new wave music, he decided to end his short but eventful life. The eccentric singer and his band have had a major influence on the development of gothic and new wave music. Even contemporary bands such as Editors, Interpol and White Lies get ideas from the unique sound of this group. The mystical frontman and singer Ian Curtis is a source of inspiration for many. Dutch photographer and director Anton Corbijn meets the singer a number of times and takes his first recognized photos of Joy Division. Corbijn decides to film Ian's life and in 2007 the acclaimed black-and-white film 'Control' appears in cinemas. Joy Division released only two records: Unknown Pleasures in 1979 and Closer a year later. The singles She's Lost Control and Love Will Tear Us Apart are especially known to the general public. The real fans, of course, know more gems.
