We arrived Thursday lunch time, ditched our bags in the hotel and then went for an adventure around the city. We got ourselves a map and walked for hours and hours! Then on Friday night it was what the big lad has been waiting for since 1996, The Stone Roses homecoming! 250 days after booking the tickets the time had finally come! Excited much? There could be tears!
We decided to walk to and from Heaton park and we arrived 4 hours before they were on stage! Early birds! Had time to get some very unhealthy dinner and push our way through a horrendous queue (mud and getting crushing BAD) for a couple of drinks. Then we found our spot...... When they came on stage the smile on the big lads face said it all! So happy!! LOVED IT!! (No tears however) Lots of finger pointing at the sky, some brilliant actions to some of the songs by die hard Roses fans, and the crowd shouting out the anthems! Brilliant craic! And we get to do it all again in August when they play Belfast at Tennants Vital!
