Bono, Depeche Mode rumoured to appear at Ian Curtis film party


It’s a rumour, OK? So take it for what it is. Bono and members of both New Order and Depeche Mode will most likely attend the party for the premiere of the film “Control”, based on the life of the late Joy Division singer Ian Curtis who killed himself at the age of only 23.

“Control” is based on the book “Touching From a Distance” by Curtis’ wife Deborah Curtis, with a screenplay by Matt Greenhalgh. Noted rock photographer Anton Corbijn directed the movie, which explains the connection with Bono and Depeche Mode. Inevitably, there is talk of someone getting on stage to play a song or two. But who? “Control” is opening the Director’s Fortnight.
