'HOT: A Celebration of the Hacienda'. Saturday December 3rd, 2005 at the Manchester Academy 1. DJs: 808 State, MIKE PICKERING, GRAEME PARK, PETER HOOK, Jon Da Silva.

"The legend lives on - the most intense night of 1988's 'summer of love' is officially returning to thaw a cold December weekend, with a heady combination of air horns, piano riffs and memories of lost inhibitions. 'Hot' - the night that first brought hedonistic lbiza to Madchester - is gathering the greatest names from the Haçienda and Fac under one roof to show us exactly what we have been missing.

Re-live the long and steamy Indian summer and get sweaty - jackin' on the dance floor with the people who brought us acid house and have the best record collec- tions this side of Chicago. The unrivalled, undisputed and downright unbelievable line-up of Graeme Park, Mike Pickering, Jon Da Silva and the 808 State boys, as well as New Order's Peter Hook, is gonna make this night rocckkkk...

The Hacienda is back in the area. If you weren't there first time round this is your chance. And if you were — I'm sure you've already bought the ticket. See y'all there... Aciiied!"

'HALLELUJAH: A Celebration of Madchester'. Saturday May 13th, 2006 at the Manchester Academy 1. Line-up: SHAUN RYDER, A Guy Called Gerald, Jon Da Silva, BEZ, 808 State, & special guests.

"Dress code: Baggy Jeans, Bandannas, Smiley Face T-Shirts, Whistles & Horns."

"As the summer sun rises over Madchester once again, acid-fuelled memories of baggy pants, bandanas and smiley-face t shirts become reality, and the city gets ready to party like its 1988. Think back to the days when Mondays were Happy, 808 was the name of a state and pills, thrills and bellyaches were welcomed - to an era that produced the most definitive soundtrack ever, for each generation to follow. 808 State, Jon Da Silva and A Guy Called Gerald lead the revolution in the clubs, while the Reverend Shaun Ryder and his counterpart the Freaky Dancin' Bez lead the revolution on the stage. And for one summer evening only, Madchester is back "in the area", with all five legendary outfits taking to the stage once more - for the party of the decade... And God made Madchester."
