The Clone Roses & DJ Clint Boon
Date: 18th November 2017
Details:  The Stone Roses are without doubt one of the most important bands of British music and their music has influenced and inspired many artists. They recently performed 4 sell out nights at The Etihad Stadium in Manchester to over 240,000 people, and the concerts will no doubt go down in history for fans of the band.

But with the Roses’ appearances now less regular, there is only 1 option to hear those songs played with the same passion and energy as the real thing. The Clone Roses are the longest serving and most popular Roses Tribute playing live today. The attention to detail is second to none, with the band acquiring the same clothing, instruments and usually play the same set as The Roses themselves. The band have recently played Isle of Wight Festival, Shiine on Weekender, and “A Tribute to Manchester” headlining to over 2500 at Manchester Academy 1, and to 1700 people at Ulster Hall in Belfast, as well as a UK Tour of the o2 Academy music venues.

Expect to hear all the classics, “Waterfall”, “Made of Stone”, “I am the Resurrection” along with the new songs “All for One” and “Beautiful Thing.”

If you’ve never seen the real deal or want to re-live the best gig you’ve been to then “The Clones” will deliver the next best thing!

“I can’t believe it’s not butter, the second best Stone Roses in the World!

MANI (THE STONE ROSES)

“Easily the Best Roses Tribute Band in the business”

CLINT BOON (INSPIRAL CARPETS / RADIO X)

“The Clones have long been the best”

Who's Who
Date: 24th February 2018
Details:  Formed in West London in 1996, Who’s Who, the longest established Who Tribute Show in the UK, have received incredible reactions across Europe and beyond for their exciting live performances. Widely respected and acknowledged by members of The Who, as the group that most interprets the songs of Pete Townshend and the legendary live performances of The Who, with honesty and integrity. Giving nothing less than 100% during a performance, Who ’s Who ensure that a night to remember is guarantee. The band celebrated the 40th anniversary of "Live at Leeds" in 2010, touring extensively and performing the whole of "Tommy" to audiences in the UK and Europe, amid critical acclaim.

Raw Power, Passion and Soul, that's what defines the members that make up Who’s Who. Their longevity and chemistry together as a unit is unchallengeable - 13 years in a stable line-up, the longest ever for any Who type band; and from that comes an understanding of each other as players; much like The Who themselves. Any player will tell you that you cannot buy chemistry, and it serves as a testament to the reputation they have worked extremely hard to cement.

Who's Who plays to its strengths, which is its collective talent as players and performers. The music will always come first - there are no wigs or "stick on" sideburns here.

As history rolls on; they have proved to be an essential ingredient to fans of The Who and the musical legacy it's left behind.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

Doors: 7:30pm

Tickets: £13 ADV/£15 OTD
