Seeing the Roses? | Cheap Hotels in Manchester

I don’t need to sell my soul, He’s already in me, I wanna be adored… Are you in Manchester to see the Stone Roses this week? Have you booked a place to stay? Why not check out one of the nicest cheap hotels in Manchester.

The weather may not have been at its best yesterday but that didn’t stop Mancunian music fans, and music fans from even further afield braving the elements and coming in to town. The occasion of was of course the first of three spectacular Stone Roses concerts – taking part this week and over the weekend at the Etihad Stadium.

Vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani, and drummer Reni may just be Manchester’s most famous sons, and so their homecoming is for many the event of the year. The band last treated Manchester to a little piece of their magic back in 2012, and so for the fans the long wait to see them again is finally over. Of course when it comes to Roses fans, they are used to a little waiting…

The Stone Roses formed in Manchester right back in 1983. They were right there at the beginning of a movement known as the Madchester movement, a time when Manchester was at the forefront of the Music world. It wasn’t until 1989 however, that the band released their debut album. An album that many consider to be the best debut by a band of all time.

It took the band no less than seven years to follow up that album, releasing ‘Second Coming’ in 1994. It was a long seven years for the band too, with legal cases, record label issues and poor management decisions hindering them from following up on the success of their first album. The seven year interim had taken its toll on the band and during their promotional tour of their second album cracks began to appear. Reni was out, and Squire soon followed. The band buy klonopin mc carried on with new additions added to their line up but ultimately Brown and Mani dissolved the band in October 1996.

Over the years that followed, Brown enjoyed success as a solo artist, interrupted only by a short stay in Strangeways, following a ruckus on a return flight from Paris in 1998. Squire formed a new band ‘The Seahorses’ which went on to release two albums, he also released a solo album before retiring to focus on his painting. Mani took his groove over to Primal Scream, taking on bass duties and Reni faded from public view, starting a local and keeping out of the spotlight.

Despite only releasing two albums, the Roses maintained a respectful following. There were always rumours that the Roses would return, and in 2011 fans were treated to a press conference confirming they were back. A Greatest Hits tour followed with landmark shows in Manchester, however, things soon went quiet once again in the Roses camp. This was until this year. The band are back, they’ve finally released two new tracks and are currently on a massive UK and European tour. Will there be any more new music? We certainly hope so, no matter how long we have to wait.

Yesterday the Mitre was alive with Roses fans singing along to their favourite tunes on the juke box. If the atmosphere at the Etihad was anything like the one in here, then one thing is for certain, the shows will be ones to remember.
