Artist: All Roads Meet
Venue: City Varieties, Leeds
New Dawn Fades was a play rather than a gig but the cast did perform live versions of classic Joy Division tracks.
A brave and successful attempt to retell a sacred story that has already been expertly covered by Tony Wilson, Deborah Curtis, Michael Winterbottom and Anton Cobijn. The minimal cast and simple set design captured the promise and pain of the Manchester music scene’s finest.
