Manchester in the Area presents premier tribute acts of The Stone Roses and The Smiths The Absolute Stone Roses and The Joneses. Bringing the visceral live performances of Manchester’s legends to venues locally nationally and internationally. This event will bring back cherished memories or introduce you to some of the most influential and inspiring bands of the 80s and 90s in UK Music history, and will leave you inspired and exhausted from shear enjoyment.
There will be 2 sets packed out with classic, greatest hits and bangers. They will leave you musically replenished and physically spent through the irresistible urge to sing and dance.
The Stone Roses – The Absolute Stone Roses’ aim is to recreate that iconic sound and vibe that you get at a Stone Roses concert and bring it to live audiences all over the UK and Europe.
The Absolute Stone Roses play an awesome set of all the best roses material. Expect to hear all the classics: Waterfall, Made of Stone, Resurrection, I Wanna Be Adored, Fools Gold, Love Spreads and many more.
If you’ve never seen the real deal or want to re-live your youth, or feel that vibe, then The Absolute Stone Roses will take you on a trip with the attitude and baggy fashion.
The Smiths – The Joneses are a unique Smiths tribute band; their performance is infectious and changes the hearts and minds of non-Smiths fans through their sheer enthusiasm.
The Joneses tap into both the studio and live versions of the Smiths catalogue, merging those insights to create a hybrid at time raw version of the songs; very much like those performed by the Smiths in their short but tremendous career in live performance.
They thrive on connecting with fellow Smiths fans and bringing them into the performance; “Once seen never forgotten!!”
