Well spotted DMXI, I have added it to the main site.

Interesting that the flyer price and the ticket price are slightly different.

Hi again, Don't know if it is of interest to you but I also have a very similar flyer for the Bristol gig a few days later. Rezillos didn't play Chelsea took their place, then the Undertones wouldn't let Joy Division play, have hated that band ever since. Be fair Gene October came out and said they were happy to knock15 minutes off their set to let Joy Division play but the Undertones wouldn't do it! So Gene took Joy Division and me and few other J.D fans across the road and brought us all a pint, lot more to tell about that night and will do this when I get the time and add it to the J.D web site. Regards, W****.
That is one of the replies i had from the seller,hope there is more to hear.....like:
-what songs were played
-in what state of mind were the band (solid or nervous?),not forgetting that 2 months later they had the 1st peel-session
-poster printed & used?
-what was the pint like???
.....those memories are priceless and in dire need of being cemented here,imo.
