If you have been on social media today you will undoubtedly have seen a wave of fans letting you know how they got on trying to get tickets for The Stone Roses at the Etihad Stadium next year.
There was panic and misery as servers failed to stand up to the incredible demand before announcements of extra dates were made. They will be playing at Manchester City’s home on June 15th, 17th, 18th and 19th.
While unscrupulous hotel owners or “Pricks” as I like to call them, hike their prices for the travelling thousands there is another option available north of the border.
T in the… nah, just kidding. I would not recommend that horrendous festival if Hendrix, Elvis and Marriott rose from the grave to headline it. No, in the Ayrshire town of Irvine Scotland’s own Stone Roses tribute Resurrection (formerly The Complete Stone Roses) play the volunteer rooms.
With members of The Stone Roses counted among their fans you know it will be good. If you fancy it the date is Saturday February 13th and you can pick up your tickets from Scotland’s latest record shop, Rare Trade on Kilwinning Main Street.
