New Order have confirmed they are supporting a tribute concert for late Charlatans drummer Jon Brookes.

Brookes was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2010 and returned to drum with the band less than a year later. However, he passed away on August 13 this year.

In a post on their official website New Order say they are "proud" to be a part of A Night For Jon Brookes with The Charlatans & Friends.

Stephen and Gillian from the band are joining the line up of friends for the concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday October 18.

Proceeds from the night go to The Brain Tumour Charity.

Liam Gallagher confirmed on Twitter on Monday that he is on the bill.

The full line-up will be confirmed later and tickets are on sale now from  or
