The Stone Roses Reunite for 2 Manchester Shows in June 2012, World Tour to Follow

 
By on Tuesday, 18th October 2011 at 3:50 pm
 

Some of us never thought we’d see the day…but the day has come. The Stone Roses have reunited. Ian Brown said this afternoon at an electric press conference regarding their decision: “This is a live resurrection, and you’re invited, so you better be there.”

As for where is the “there”, the initial announcement has been for the legendary Britpop band to play two massive shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park (75,000 capacity) next summer, on Friday 29 June and Saturday 30 June 2012. Tickets for these shows will go on sale this Friday (21st of October) at 9:30 AM. Tickets are £55 apiece, not including handling fees.

There was also a mention of a world tour to follow, but no further details have been made on when and where else the band will play. We at TGTF will keep you informed as more information becomes available.

Friday 29 June 2012 – Manchester Heaton Park
Saturday 30 June 2012 – Manchester Heaton Park

 

Video of the Moment #126: Ian Brown

 
By on Wednesday, 9th September 2009 at 6:00 pm
 

Former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown is set to release his ‘Thriller’-inspired sixth solo album, ‘My Way’, later this month. The first single from the album, ‘Stellify’, has already hit the airwaves, and here’s the video that goes with the song. With his own marching band following, Brown takes a spirited walk through Manchester. I feel a bit heartsick watching it, as I’m recognising some of those streets…

As previously reported on TGTF, Brown starts on an extensive tour of the UK beginning in November.

Ian Brown’s ‘My Way’ album will be released in the UK on 28 September. The first single from the album, ‘Stellify’, will drop on 21 September.

The Brit Awards 2009 – The Nominations

Coldplay's new album cover

Ahh…The Brits. Perhaps more famous for Jarvis Cocker’s stage invasion, or Arctic Monkey‘s drunken speeches rather than for it’s showcasing of the best of British music. Either way, every year it certainly proves an interesting watch and this 2009, the controversial show will be presented by disco diva, Kylie Minogue and Gavin and Stacey stars, Mathew Horne and James Corden. There will be performances from Kings of Leon, U2 and Take That to name but a few. You can catch all the action live on ITV1 on February 18th, but if you can’t wait till then, There Goes The Fear is here to tell you about the successful nominees that were announced earlier this week.

The artists leading the way with the highest amount of nominations this year are Welsh songstress, Duffy and Coldplay – both tallying up a total of four nods. Both artists had number 1 albums last year – Duffy with ‘Rockferry‘ and Coldplay with ‘Viva la Vida‘ (pictured right) – so are unsurprisingly up for Mastercard’s Best British Album alongside Elbow, Radiohead and The Ting Tings. Duffy’s ‘Mercy’ and Coldplay’s ‘Viva la Vida’ will also be going head to head in Best British Single category alongside the likes of Estelle‘s ‘American Boy’, Adele with ‘Chasing Pavements’ and the X Factor Finalists’ ‘Hero’.

Duffy also features in the Best British Female Solo Artist category alongside Adele, Beth Rowley, Estelle and MIA, while the nominees in male counterpart include Ian Brown, James Morrison, Paul Weller, Streets and Will Young. Best British Group has seen the nomination of the ever-popular Coldplay, Elbow, Radiohead, Take That and Girls Aloud.

New music recieving nods in this year’s Best British Breakthrough Act include Last Shadow Puppets and Scouting For Girls, while 2009’s Best British Live Act showcases everyone from Iron Maiden and The Verve, to Elbow.

Singer-songwriter, Florence and the Machine (who we featured here), is tracing the footsteps of 2008 winner Adele through gaining the coveted Critics Choice Award which recognises upcoming music talent. Meanwhile, Pet Shop Boys have been intriguingly awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award, following on from Beatle Sir Paul McCartney’s win last year.

Band’s receiving nods in the international categories including Best International Group and Best International Album are Kings of Leon, The Killers, AC/DC, MGMT and Fleet Foxes. Solo artists featuring in the categories honouring oversea talent include Katy Perry, Gabriella Cilmi, Seasick Steve, Beck and Kanye West.

To see the nominations in full, check out the official Brits website.
