Mick Jones to tour playing The Clash songs

Mick Jones will play songs by The Clash live for the first time in nearly 30 years as part of a tour for the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

The Big Audio Dynamite man will play a series of live dates this December for the Justice Tonight tour.

Jones said, “It was just a fantastic, fantastic thing. I was very pleased to be asked and it went so well, so we thought we’d might try and do some more.”
He will also be joined by singer-songwriter Pete Wylie and Liverpool band The Farm for the six shows.

Members of Primal Scream, including singer Bobby Gillespie, are set to appear on the tour. More special guests for the tour are set to be announced soon.

Mick Jones has also been busy with Paul Simonon working on a new biopic based on the recording of their classic 1979 album ‘London Calling’, which is still one of the best albums ever made.

The pair are working as executive producers for the film, which is being written by playwright Jez Butterworth.

Alison Owen, mother of Lily Allen, is producing the film, along with Ruby Film And Television’s Paul Trijbits.

Cast details are yet to be announced.

Also, a new biopic about The Clash’s late frontman Joe Strummer is also in the works.
