Resurrection : Stone Roses Tribute 30/03/18
Tickets £8 at No Sign Bar, The Vault & Derricks Swansea.
Over 18’s only.
Resurrection were formed in 1998 & are based in Glasgow, Scotland. The most successful & first tribute to The Stone Roses north of the border. Their success made them not only the best Stone Roses tribute around, but one of Scotland’s most seen bands in their first 3yrs under another title. They have toured with many celebrities including Mani (The Stone Roses/ex Primal Scream) over a 3 year period. They performed live onstage with their hero at the world famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut . The band also toured with Inspiral Carpets members & had many celebrity fans including The Stone Roses/Primal Scream/The High/Inspiral Carpets/The Smiths/The Seahorses/Shed 7 & Snow Patrol among others. Some quotes from this period in the bands history are mind blowing with Mani quoted as saying “They do the songs justice & sound better than we did before we split”. The quotes & reviews are astounding from their live performances around the UK & Ireland.
Resurrection were quoted by many (including many celebrities) as the ‘best live band around.’ Pretty good going for a Stone Roses tribute act. They have performed live on BBC Ireland’s ‘The 11th Hour’ STV News & various satellite shows with a more recent interview & live performance on SKY News to coincide with the release of new Stone Roses material. The group are also mentioned in 3 books (Ian Brown – Already In Me, War & Peace & John Robb’s book The Stone Roses).
The band last performed over 10yrs ago & felt the time was right to give the public the songs they love to hear in the renditions they expect from a top class tribute band. The band already sold over 27 shows in the space of 12 months. Not too shabby for a band that hadn’t performed in over a decade.The band dusted down the flares & sunhats, & wiped away the cobwebs & got back on the bus to Madchester & all those Good Times, Let It Roll Again!
