Monday, 2 July
The Stone Roses' Heaton Park homecoming
Lily Allen, John Simm, Ray Winston and Gary Neville were just some of the famous faces who managed to get on the guest list for the weekend's Stone Roses gigs in Manchester, though understandably there were no royals on the list as Ian Brown made his thoughts on the Diamond Jubilee clear, declaring: "This is for them, 200 miles down the road, celebrating 60 years of tyranny", as the band played Elizabeth My Dear.
The people of Manchester were so into the 'Roses return, one train driver even started playing the band's music over the public announcement system.
The band's former dancer Cressa gave his seal of approval to the Roses' reunion. "I was anticipating possibly a rocky show, but they were awesome," he admitted.
Read an extract from The Stone Roses - War And Peace, by Simon Spence, the man behind our recent cover feature on the band.
Finally, here's the 'Roses recorded live in 1995.
