In July 1998 we played our first ever Clone Roses show at The Phoenix in St Helens. The Stone Roses had split two years previously but we felt people still wanted to hear their music played live again. That very first gig was packed and we could sense even then, the love that people have for The Stone Roses and their music.
Since those humble beginnings we have been fortunate to have played some amazing gigs: supporting The Happy Mondays at Brixton Academy, the Isle of Wight Festival, Shiiine On Weekender and headlining shows at Manchester Academy 1, Belfast Ulster Hall and Warrington Parr Hall. What a ride it has been.
On July 2018 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary, we are hosting and headlining Clonefest, a one day tribute Festival at Sherdley Park, St Helens. We will be joined by a host of Manchester themed tribute bands who we have proudly played alongside over the years. We are delighted that our good friend ‘Mr Manchester’ himself Clint Boon will be DJing on the day. Another long term friend of ours, local legend Dave Sweetmore will host the day.
We hope you can join us to celebrate 20 years!
