Ian Brown announces first solo show since The Stone Roses split

Following the very brief return of The Stone Roses, Ian Brown is now set to play his first solo headline show since they split – again. Having essentially parted ways in 2017 the iconic frontman has now confirmed a new date to be excited about.

After the band got back together to produce a few songs together it all came to a confirmed end in September. John Squire was the man to deliver the bad news but rumours of the band’s split had been raging for years.

Those rumours began in 2017 when the band’s show in Glasgow was widely suggested to be their last. When Ian Brown said “Don’t be sad it’s over, be happy it happened” it seemed to confirm it. But it would still take a couple of years for the news to be fully confirmed.

However, now, Ian Brown is back on the road so all is right with the world. The ‘F.E.A.R’ singer has been announced as the headliner for next year’s Neighbourhood Weekender in Warrington in May 2020.

Other acts slated to appear, include Sam Fender, Pale Waves, Yungblud, Catfish and The Bottlemen, and Miles Kanes. The line-up is a tasty mix of new and older talent and will see a decidedly British feel fall across the fields.

While tickets for the event go on sale at 9:30 am on November 22nd and can be bought here – we’re hoping these aren’t the only date Mr Brown has in mind for 2020.
