31st May 1977: Rafters, Manchester
Mark Johnson's Ideal For Living book has Joy Division supporting Johnny
Thunders on 30th June. That is wrong. Generation X played Rafters 30th
June (see see listing below).
Deborah Curtis explicitly mentions 31st May in Touching From A Distance.
She also says that "they were offered the support gig with Johnny Thunder
and the Heartbreakers at Rafters".
