Joy Division

19th November 1978: Locarno, Bristol CANCELLED

Joy Division were meant to support The Rezillos and the Undertones on this date of their joint Tour.

However after the Rezillos had a bust up at the gig at the Odeon Theatre, Canterbury 14th Nov 1978 they cancelled nearly all of the rest of the tour - including all the dates Joy Division were to have played.

Mickey Bradley, the Undertones bassist remebers the following (taken from the BBC Radio Ulster webpage);

"The last time I saw Joy Division was at the Locarno in Bristol.They'd travelled down from Manchester to be told that The Rezillos had split up and instead John Otway and Chelsea were to headline that night,with us on stage first. No room on the bill for Joy Division. That's showbusiness,that is."
