It is by no means certain this concert took place

Planned set list:
Exercise One
Lost Control
Leaders of Men
New one
Ice Age
Synth One

The planned set list is taken from one of Rob Gretton's notebook pages as displayed at the 2010 "Life / works of Ian Curtis and Joy Division" Exhibition in Macclesfield. For more info see our message board.

Whether they stuck to this set list on the night, or indeed whether the concert took place at all is uncertain. There is remarkably little evidence to suggest it happened and the set list is pretty much identical to 14 March 1979 gig at the Bowden Vale Youth Club. However, in his autobiography "Bunnyman", Will Sergeant mentions two Joy Division gigs he attended at Ericís, on the 16th February and 11th August, 1979, and he states "In February 1979, Joy Division are back; this time everyone is watching".   

New One was probably Disorder
Synth One would have been I Remember Nothing
