A Night For Jon Brookes: The Charlatans + James Dean Bradfield + Liam Gallagher + Members of The Vaccines and New Order + The Chemical Brothers + Dumb
The Charlatans have announced details of a very special night at The Royal Albert Hall on Friday October 18th, in memory and celebration of Jon Brookes. The Charlatans drummer died last month after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2010. Proceeds from the night will go to The Brain Tumour Charity.
“Following the loss of our much missed friend and drummer, Jon Brookes, we, together with some friends, are putting on a show at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 18th October 2013. The show will benefit THE BRAIN TUMOUR CHARITY, which Jon was involved with during his illness. It's our way of raising money for research into and awareness of a cancer that will unfortunately affect many lives as it has ours. We look forward to seeing you at the RAH and making it a night to remember.” – The Charlatans
The full line-up includes:
James Dean Bradfield from Manic Street Preachers
Liam Gallagher and friends
Members of The Vaccines and New Order
The Chemical Brothers (djing between bands)
Also available on the night are strictly limited exclusive Pete Fowler designed prints.
"It's all about the music. Everything else is shit." - Jon Brookes
This event takes place at Royal Albert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The Charlatans are one of the most successful bands around, having had 3 Number one albums and numerous top 30 singles. They have had to overcome many setbacks over their 20+ years career and yet still remain a major force in today's music industry. They have never courted media hype but yet consistently sell out venues all across Europe unlike many of their peers who have fallen by the wayside.
The band that never sold out and never considered nostalgia as a career path - they truly are one of the last great bands. Expect something truly special live.

Pontypool - born Bradfield's musical career is readily recognised with the success of the Manic Street Preachers, who rose to fame during the '90s and peaked with the album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours, following the disappearance of bandmate Richey James Edwards. Bradfield's work in recent years has been mostly in the vein of collaboration and production, seeing him work with Tom Jones, Kylie Minogue and Patrick Jones, as well as having remixed for Massive Attack.

Big beat and dance pioneers Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands, have perfected the art of keeping people on the floor. Their albums are journeys through guitar riffs, massive beats, cool samples and huge breakdowns - taking in everything and anything along the way. With an spectacular live show and a number of critically acclaimed albums to their credit, they are truly established as Superstar DJs.
The Chemical Brothers tour dates
Influenced by Pixies and cult American indie rock heroes Built To Spill, this Birmingham four-piece's bold and brash combination of self-assured swagger, slick melodies and rasping vocals have already caught the attention of the likes of NME and Radio 1.
Diligent, hard-working and musically dexterous, Dumb are tipped to establish themselves as one of the country’s most promising new bands.
