Included among the artists confirmed for the benefit are Joe Strummer, Mick Jones and Topper Headon – three-quarters of the original Clash.

Others confirmed for the show include Robbie Williams; Kirsty MacColl; Madness; and Dury’s band, the Blockheads.

The former Clash-mates have long eschewed all possibilities of a reunion. However, a source reported to be “close to Strummer” has blabbed to the media that a reconciled Clash, including Paul Simonon, may perform at the 4,272-capacity Academy.

The Clash has not appeared in its original configuration since Headon left under strained circumstances in 1982. His departure came just before the quartet scored its biggest U.S. hit, “Rock The Casbah,” which Headon wrote.

The band ultimately dissolved in 1985 and has since refused all offers of a reunion, including a tidy sum to headline the now-defunct Lollapalooza festival.

Dury died March 27 after a lengthy battle with liver cancer. The show will benefit Cancer BACUP, an organization for which he had been a spokesperson.

With The Blockheads, Dury gained cult status in the late 1970s with singles such as “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick,” and “Drugs and Sex and Rock and Roll.”
