Justice Tonight
In Aid of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign
Featuring
Mick Jones (The Clash/Big Audio Dynamite)
Pete Wylie
The Farm
Plus surprise special guests at each venue

After a special one off show at Liverpool’s Olympia in aid of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign earlier this year, The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite’s Mick Jones, Pete Wylie, The Farm and special guests will tour Justice Tonight around the country this December to raise awareness of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.
Every gig should have a reason and these shows are about getting Justice for the families, survivors and supporters of the 96 people who died at Sheffield Wednesday’s Hillsborough football ground on 15th April 1989.
For Mick Jones this will be the first time he has toured performing Clash songs since 1982 and says:
“I’m totally honoured to be part of something so meaningful and I hope that we can do some good”
Joining Mick are Pete Wylie who’s powerful, emotional and political songs are just what are needed for these shows and ”˜All Together Now’ legends The Farm. Just announced this afternoon as very special guests members of Primal Scream will be joining the line up at London, James Allen from Glasvegas at Glasgow, Jon McClure from Reverend and The Makers will perform and Richard Hawley will DJ in Sheffield.
The Hillsborough Justice Campaign continues to fight for justice for the victims of the disaster and for the truth to be established. Everyone volunteers their time and skills for free. As well as challenging the official version of events, the group also helps survivors of the disaster, many of whom have suffered long term psychological damage.

The HJC has operated in the face of great adversity for years and has had to utilise new technology to promote the campaign in the face of a hostile media. It is the view of the HJC that the Hillsborough Disaster and subsequent cover up is a miscarriage of justice. Human and civil rights were denied in the aftermath of the disaster. It is for this reason that the HJC is pleased to support the forthcoming concerts which aim to promote the broader issue of justice in a society where rights are increasingly being eroded.

Tom Watson MP, a supporter of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign will also be appearing on the tour on selected dates and there will be DJ Sets by Don Letts & Terry Farley at London Scala. More special guests will be announced soon.

  1. I have to stop reading articles about gigs that are not happening in the u.s. — breaks my heart to hear about this tour, lineups I will never see! Can only be glad I saw Joe Strummer right before he r.i.p. –of course, not the same as original Clash, but the next best thing and close as I’ll ever get now…

  2. There seems to be a grudge against Nottingham there was 20000+ of us there that day,why include Manchester Glasgow Cardiff and London ? but not us ,shame x

  3. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know so much approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with some percent to pressure the message home a little bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  4. Oh my goodness! Incredible article dude! Thanks, However I am having problems with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I cannot subscribe to it. Is there anybody else getting similar RSS issues? Anyone who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  5. Hello, Neat post. There’s an issue along with your web site in web explorer, would test this¡K IE still is the marketplace leader and a huge portion of other folks will miss your excellent writing due to this problem.

  6. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
