North West Calling, the annual punk all-dayer due to be held in Manchester in June, has been rescheduled due to the ongoing coronavirus emergency.

The event at the O2 Ritz, which was meant to be on Saturday, June 6, will now take place on Saturday, November 21, at the same venue.

Sham 69, featuring the classic line-up of Pursey, Parsons, Treganna and Guy, are still the headliners, with The Rezillos enjoying second billing.

However, Ruts DC are unable to play, so have been replaced by the Angelic Upstarts, and In Evil Hour cannot make the rearranged date, so their place has been taken by Blackpool band Litterbug, who will be first on.

The rest of the line-up remains the same: The Outcasts, Goldblade, Dirt Box Disco, Gimp Fist, Hung Like Hanratty, Duncan Reid and the Big Heads, and Vomit.

Tickets for the rescheduled date, priced £28 plus booking fees, are on sale now from All tickets sold for the original date remain valid.
