Manchester v Cancer featuring New Order and Doves - tickets still available 
Tickets are still available for the Manchester versus Cancer Concert in association with Key 103 via Ticketmaster. This is the biggest ever charity fundraising gig to be staged in Manchester.

Taking place at the Manchester Evening News Arena on 28 January 2006, the concert will see some of Manchester's very own legends appearing on stage together for the first time ever. The confirmed line-up includes:

New Order
Johnny Marr & the Healers
Andy Rourke
Badly Drawn Boy
Mani (Stone Roses and Primal Scream)
Stephen Fretwell
808 State
Utah Saints
+ more to be confirmed.

The gig was the idea of ex-Smith, Andy Rourke, following news that his manager's sister and father had been diagnosed with cancer. Andy and friends decided to group together to raise 1 million pounds for alternatives to chemotherapy at Manchester's Christie Hospital, Europe's largest cancer treatment and research centre.
