Ian Brown is a certified Mancunion musical icon. Now seven albums down since the split of the Stone Roses, he’ll be playing his second huge Manchester gig of the year. While early June’s Platt Fields Park night was fantastic, the Warehouse Project gig promises even more. With Factory favourite Mike Pickering on beforehand, as well as Special Guests yet to be announced (most likely Scratch Perverts or UNKLE), it’s going to be a fantastic start to Warehouse’s last full weekend of gigs.
Sure, he may not roll through the Stone Roses hits like some want him too, but there’s more than enough in his solo repertoire to turn it into a truly epic night. Just ask anyone who was at that Platt Fields Park gig; or anybody in Fallowfield who could just hear the window rattling bass. Even they will have loved it. Not one to miss.
