A special charity gig, ‘Manchester vs Cancer’, is to take place at the city’s Manchester Evening News Arena next month, organised by former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke, who is assembling a stellar line up of northern acts, amongst them New Order, Badly Drawn Boy, Doves and Stephen Fretwell. Speaking about the event, Rourke said: “It will bring together people and bands that have made Manchester famous. It will be huge and the idea is that this will be the start of an annual event to raise money for charity.”
