Rather, what gigs serve as the best companion pieces to each album, illustrating in a live situation the brilliance of the album?

For example, I think the Lyceum gig exemplifies Closer live the best:

24 Hours, The Eternal, Heart and Soul, Isolation, and Atrocity Exhibition - five songs directly off the album
Incubation and Komakino - two more songs recorded during the Closer sessions
Love Will Tear Us Apart, These Days, and She's Lost Control (Synth Version) - recorded in the three months leading up to Closer and similar in tone and feel to the album

I guess the Eindhoven gig for UP, six out of ten songs, if I'm not mistaken, and perfomance is glorious as well.

Been mulling this over and still come up with "none." To me, it's like apples compared to oranges.

I'd say that the 2006 CD reissue sets pretty much nailed it - 13 July 1979 Factory gig for 'UP' and 8 February 1980 ULU gig for 'Closer', both sets reflect well what was happening musically with the band at the time.

None.
Joy Division's aggressivity and roughness live is uncomparable with the eternal and 'athmospheric' sound created with their songs by that genius that Martin Hannett was.

I always enjoy listening to the Malvern gig from April '80, especially the synth-based tunes

Forgot to mention :
Peel sesh 1 -UP
Peel sesh 2 - closer
....and "still" is a combination in itself of aforementioned criteria,me thinks.
