fools gold and a classic manchester night …

The Stone Roses – one of the great Manchester bands a touchstone for more than one generation have just finished a four night run at the Etihad.

On Saturday night, they were on form delivering  a set to match most anything I’ve seen would be something of an understatement.

They were quite simply quite brilliant and this was a proper manc’ night (and it didn’t rain).

Ian Brown led the foursome through a superb set list that started with the classic I Wanna be Adored and finished an hour and forty five minutes later with the stadium crushing I am The Resurrection.

It was all better than good with my only disappointment being that I only had a ticket for the one night instead of all four.
