In May 1990, The Stone Roses performed the now famous Spike Island concert which took place in Widnes, Cheshire.
The gig, which was attended by some 27,000 people, has become legendary over the years as a “Woodstock for the Baggy generation” and the show cemented the Roses’ as one of the UK’s most cult bands of all time.
“The Clones” are considered to be the No.1 tribute band to The Stone Roses and are now offering Roses’ fans the opportunity to re-live those heady Madchester days by performing the Spike Island show with the full set in it’s entirety and recreating the look and vibe of this iconic show.
The Summer of 2012 saw Manchester legends ‘The Stone Roses’ reform for a series of memorable shows, most noticeably 3 nights at Heaton Park in Manchester. The band then toured around the world for the rest of 2012 and then played three UK shows in 2013 in London & Glasgow.
For fans who want to re-live those memorable summer nights of 2012 and 2013 there is surely only one option. The Clone Roses are the closest thing you will find to recreate the look and sound of these shows. The Clones have been gigging all over the UK for the past 15 years and to pay tribute to the Roses’ comeback, they have updated their show. They have managed to acquire the same instruments and exact same clothing as The Roses’ recent shows and the setlist is identical to the Heaton Park gigs.
They include all the classics in their set such as ‘Waterfall’ ‘Made of Stone’ ‘This is the One’ and of course ‘I am the Resurrection’.
