A massive Stone Roses tribute concert is set to go ahead this summer, after being pushed back by the pandemic.
Taking place back on the hallowed ground at Spike Island, the gig will mark 30 years since Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani and Reni headlined the era-defining event.
The one-day festival in Widnes will be headlined by The Clone Roses, alongside other tribute acts of some of the world's biggest bands.
Joining them on the stage this summer will be Oas-is, The Smiths Ltd, Happy Mondaze, The James Experience and True Order, plus DJ sets from Bez, Clint Boon, and Andy Barker from 808 State.
It will be the only live performance to take place at Spike Island since that iconic gig in 1990, and is set to be the world's largest ever tribute-themed festival.
Spike Island - The Resurrection was supposed to take place in May 2020, but had to be postponed.
Organisers now say theu are 'very confident' that it will go ahead
shortly after England is supposed to reach the next stage of the roadmap out of lockdown.
"That legendary gig is still talked about fondly all these years later and we know from the many enquiries that we have had over the years that many people have wanted to see it repeated.
"Our park at Spike Island is ideal for this kind of event and our officers will now be working closely with Lightbulb Festivals Ltd to ensure we have a successful and safe event for the fans to enjoy."
