Stone Roses @ Heaton Park +City fan Reni

MANCHESTER - First night. Tonight again, with Beady Eye (4/5 of Oasis, singer included ;).
Noel Gallagher selling hotdogs, as he said.


I wanna be adored

Fools gold 

The Stone Roses finally made a triumphant homecoming on the 1st night of their Manchester Heaton Park weekender (June 29).
After a run of European warm-ups, 75,000 revellers of all ages turned up for music's most anticipated show of the year, as one of the city's most legendary bands played their first major UK show in 16 years.
Just after 9pm, the intro track of The Supremes' 'Stoned Love' faded out and what the world was waiting for took place; Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani and Reni walked onstage and powered into their 1989 classic I Wanna Be Adored'.
Following quickly with Mersey Paradise, Sugar Spun Sister and Where Angels Play, Brown quipped, "As you can see, we've still got it." He sported a black biker jacket, while guitarist Squire sported a tartan jacket. Mani wore paisley (Pretty Green), while Reni repeated the dreadlock wig, which many have speculated is a nod to his 90s replacement Robbie Maddix. Mani played a selection of basses, with a psychedelic pink and yellow model replaced by the red, yellow and green colours of Rastafarianism, in a nod to support act The Wailers.
Love Spreads saw Brown strip down to a black patterned T-shirt and Reni don his trademark cap, on top of the dreadlock wig. And as the song ended, King Monkey jammed the track out into a rap, celebrating the band's return and demanding applause.
Before This Is The One, a proud Brown asked the crowd, "Who's from Manchester?" As they careered into their final run of A-list hits, he exclaimed, "Looking out, I can see we still got the best looking girls!" (are you sure? lol)
But as the show approached its climax, the gloves came off. The singer made a barbed comment on the recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations before Elizabeth My Dear. He said, "This song's dedicated to those parasites down the road… celebrating 60 years of tyranny!"
They went on finish with a heroic rendition of I Am The Resurrection, extended into its traditional wig-out epilogue. The bandmembers then hugged, stood in solidarity at the front of the stage, and then departed jubilant, with a stubborn lack of encore.
As the crowd dispersed, a spectacular firework display went off, to the strains of Redemption Song, one of the few Bob Marley classics The Wailers did not play earlier on.

Earlier on, Mani was able to look upon his previous band Primal Scream, who are playing their first dates with their replacement bass player Debbie Googe. They also treated fans to epic, and also timely, new track '2012'.
Before that, The Wailers performed Bob Marley classics Three Little Birds, No Woman No Cry and One Love, the only band to support on all three nights, at the personal request of Ian Brown.
Formed in Manchester in 1983, The Stone Roses were the heroes of the baggy era. They made history with their 1989 debut, widely considered to be one of the greatest of all time. But it took them until 1994 to release its follow-up Second Coming, and they eventually dissolved in 1996. After years of insisting they would never do it, they finally announced their reunion in October last year. They made a surprise live comeback at Warrington's Parr Hall last month.

more stuff to add soon
(not to be thrown at cows) 

With around 250,000 people set to descend on Heaton Park this weekend for the return of seminal Manchester band The Stone Roses, we thought we would share this fantastic poem by drummer (and huge City fan) Alan 'Reni' Wren.
The Roses' hugely anticipated resurrection, following splitting up in 1996 has been the talk of the music industry over the past few months, and the three hometown shows starting last night are set to put Manchester at the centre of the cultural map once again.
Enigmatic drummer Reni is famously quoted as saying that the only time the band would ever reunite would be "when City win the European Cup", although we would like to think that last season's dramatic Premier League finale had a big part to play in the lads getting back onstage again!
'Enter The Arena' captures Reni's experience of being a ball boy at Maine Road - invoking the spirit of the Kippax and the magic of the Blues. It was first displayed as part of a Manchester music exhibition held at the old club museum back in 2006.

ENTER THE ARENA

In Alexander Sports maroon 
The ball-boys drew their plan 
Who would lead the phalanx through 
before the game began?

Ignite those mighty engines 
"I will" eight of us implore 
Invite the mighty Kippax 
to their galvanising roar

On big game days 
the sound relays 
around the roads of Maine 
between the swells 
Our Helen's bells 
We know she feels the same

No turf to kiss 
or blue bound wrist 
They run the ball-boy keener 
It's five to three 
All eyes on me.. 
We enter the arena

.....and Oooooh Rodney Rodney
