With the pressure of the first show off for the band, the north Manchester park enjoyed an even more celebratory show than yesterday, their first major UK show in 16 years.
Once again, just after 9pm, the intro track of The Supremes' 'Stoned Love' faded out and Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani and Reni walked onstage and powered into their 1989 classic I Wanna Be Adored.
Brown made a quip about the relentless rain, before powering into Mersey Paradise, Sugar Spun Sister and Where Angels Play.
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, Brown repeated his rap from yesterday, celebrating the band's return and demanding applause.
After another diatribe from Brown against the royals before first album favourite Elizabeth My Dear, the Roses finished with a heroic rendition of I Am The Resurrection, extended into its traditional wig-out epilogue. The band members then hugged, stood in solidarity at the front of the stage, and departed jubilant, stubbornly refusing to do an encore.
And for the second night, the show was followed by a spectacular firework display to the blaring out of Redemption Song, one of the few Bob Marley classics The Wailers did not play earlier on.
Even before the Roses, it was an epic night for Manchester indie, as Liam Gallagher and Beady Eye performed Oasis tracks to a hometown crowd for the first time. He dedicated Rock’n’Roll Star to "the one and only Mr Ian Brown". Later on he gave an airing to his old band’s classic Morning Glory.
Before that, The Wailers made their daily appearance, at the personal request of Ian Brown.
Lily Allen confirmed her pop comeback by making a surprise appearance with Professor Green, when the pair performed their collaboration Just Be Good To Green The day was opened by Hollie Cook.
