Popular Manchester band play first show since reforming this evening in Warrington

Heads up Stone Roses fans - the reunited Manchester band have just announced a free show this evening at Warrington Parr Hall. It'll be their first since they announced their reformation earlier this year, and happens in advance of a series of massive (and very sold out) gigs in Heaton Park later this summer, as well as a number of shows at festivals across Europe.

The announcement on the band's site reads as follows:

"The Stone Roses will play a short set tonight (Wednesday 23rd May) at Warrington Parr Hall.

This is a free concert. Fans can collect one wristband per person from the Warrington Pyramid box office (next to Warrington Parr Hall) from 4pm today.

To qualify for a free ticket to this very special warm up show fans will need to take a Stone Roses CD inlay cover, record sleeve, official band t-shirt or Heaton Park ticket with them to the Pyramid box office in order to get a wrist band. All entrants must be aged 14+.

Doors will be at 8pm."
