The Complete Stone Roses return to Derby on Friday, April 8, for a tribute gig at The Venue on Abbey Street in the city centre.
As the name suggests, the band pays musical homage to Manchester legends The Stone Roses. Selling out venues across the UK and Ireland regularly, they have helped to carry on the music of one of the UK’s most influential bands, who played a pivotal role in the history of the UK’s indie music scene. Famous hits like Fools Gold, I Am The Resurrection and I Wanna Be Adored are as recognisable now as were in the heyday of Madchester and The Hacienda, the cultural icons from which the original band were born. Former Stone Roses bass player Mani, has not only just appeared as a warm up DJ for the band on the odd occasion but has also played onstage with them as their guest bassist. The gig at The Venue is aimed at those aged 18 and over and doors open at 8pm. Tickets are £12 in advance or £15 on the door. Go to www.imemusic.co.uk for more details.
