THE COMPLETE STONE ROSES COME BACK TO MANCHESTER ... MANI SAYS THEY ARE EVEN BETTER THAN THE REAL THING

After last years sell out show at Moho Live and a packed Academy 1 show in November our very good friends at Boon Army are bringing the best tribute act in the UK to the Moho Live stage once again.

The Complete Stone Roses are now one of the UK’s most well-known, most seen and most successful tribute bands. Selling out venues across the UK and Ireland regularly, they have helped to carry on the music of one of the UK’s most influential bands - the Stone Roses who played a pivotal role in the history of the UK’s indie music scene. Famous hits like Fools Gold, I Am the Resurrection and I Wanna Be Adored are as recognisable now as they were in the heyday of Madchester and the Hacienda, the cultural icons from which the original band were born.

The Completes, as they are affectionately referenced to by their fans, play to acclaim both from fans themselves, the press, and even original Stone Roses band members. Former Stone Roses bass player Mani, (now currently the bassist for Scottish band Primal Scream) has not only just appeared as a warm up DJ for the band on the odd occasion but has also played onstage with them as their guest bassist playing She Bangs The Drums on more than a few times when he was touring about with the band. Mani says “they do our songs real justice. At times, they play even better than we did. (Mani has toured and performed on stage with 3 full different line ups of the band through the last 10 years).

They have also performed alongside Clint Boon & Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) and the legendary Bez (Happy Mondays), two Madchester legends in their own right and have even created a somewhat celebrity fan-base with artist’s such as Chris Helme, Stuart Fletcher and Andy Watts (the seahorses) Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Rick Witter (Shed 7), Andy Couzens (Stone Roses), Richard Fearless (Death In Vegas), Shane MacGowan (The Pogues) and Peter Hook (New Order) who each, individually over the last few years, have either appeared as a support DJ/Guest for the band, worked with the band or have attended one of their gigs as a fan of The Stone Roses music being played to perfection in a live environment
