Manchester v Cancer was the idea of ex-Smith, Andy Rourke, following news that his manager's sister and father had been diagnosed with cancer. Andy and his new company, Great Northern Productions Ltd decided to group together to raise £1million to fund cancer research at Manchester's Christie Hospital, Europe's largest cancer treatment and research centre. Picking up the phone to friends, Andy quickly found that most people's lives had been touched by cancer in some way and everyone wanted to help. The gig took place on 28th January 2006, and featured a line up including a whole host of Manchester music luminaries: New Order, Doves, Badly Drawn Boy, Johnny Marr & The Healers, Andy Rourke, Nine Black Alps, Bez & Domino Bones - feat. Shaun Ryder, Graeme Park, Elbow, Utah Saints, 808 State, MC Tunes, Mr Scruff, Mani and Stephen Fretwell.
