The Clone Roses and Laid - Tribute Acts
Dates: 04 Mar 2022 - 04 Mar 2022
Location: The Grand Venue - Clitheroe
The Stone Roses were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1983. They were comprised of the classic four piece line-up:-
- Vocalist - Ian Brown
- Guitarist - John Squire
- Bassist - Mani
- Drummer - Reni
In their hey-day they were the dominant force of the indie/baggy movement of the late 80’s to mid 90’s before the dawn of Britpop. Following their split in 1996 it appeared the music of the Roses was unlikely to be heard again.
Yet to the delight of their fans they reformed for a world tour in 2012. In 2016 new material was released and a tour followed in 2017. But tensions rose in the band again and another split was inevitable in 2019.
For the past twenty years however, The Clone Roses have been entertaining fans of the original line-up with the bands classic songs. Even bassist Mani described them as “the second - best Stone Roses in the world”.
Here they are in action in a 40 second compilation film thanking fans for sticking with them over 2 decades:-
The Clone Roses will be making their return to The Grand in Clitheroe on Friday 4th March 2022 two years on from their last sell out show.
Joining them will be leading James tribute ‘Laid’. Laid were formed after singer Mike Hadfield attended a James Q&A session in which Tim Booth and the band gave their blessing to the tribute. Mike then set to work gathering the troops to create a band of fans for fans - Laid - a tribute to James.
