Justice Tonight Charity Shows In Aid of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign / December 2011 UK Tour

Following on from a previous very special one-off show at Liverpool Olympia in aid of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign earlier this year, the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough football disaster, the Clash and Big Audio Dynamite’s Mick Jones, Pete Wylie, the Farm and special guests have announced a tour called Justice Tonight that will be gigging around the UK in December to raise awareness of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

If you’re not a footy fan, it’s quite possible you don’t know the details behind the Hillsborough disaster, where 96 people, all Liverpool football club supporters, lost their lives at what should have been a fun day out watching a sporting match. You can read more about it on the Hillsborough Justice Web site. You might think that this is a strange subject for a music blog. It really isn’t, if you stop to consider how many concerts these days take place at stadiums and arenas, full of excited fans. You may not have noticed it but since this disaster and the deaths of 9 people at Roskilde in 2000, increased safety measures, security and police presence have stepped up across the world in response to the senseless deaths of our fellow man in these recent tragedies.

Even if you’re not a Liverpool fan, you can’t argue that this is an amazing bill and will be a brilliant night of music. Ticket are £17.50 each and are on sale now; you can buy them from Gigs and Tours here.
