This is set to be the party of all parties.

You know you are in for a good time when you party with one of the most pioneering rock bands of all time.

Manchester legends, The Stone Roses, will be hosting exclusive after parties following their two tour dates at Leeds later this month.

The brothers behind the street-wear brand Gio Gio, Anthony and Christopher Donnelly, have been given permission by the re-formed band to hold the parties which will be at The Brotherhood on New Briggate.

Taking place after the First Direct Arena gigs on Tuesday and Wednesday June 20 and 21, those who get tickets to the party can expect to join Manchester’s most influential DJs from back in the day such as Paul Ryder from the Happy Mondays, Graeme Park and Clint Boon among others.

Ian Brown, the Stone Roses front man said: “I support the Donnelly brothers 100 per cent. I love the line-up for the parties and I love the idea of these events. There’s enough sunshine on the beach for everyone. One Love.”

Anthony Donnelly added: “The Manchester spirit is infectious. We’re one of the most celebrated cities in the world and these parties will show why.

“I am looking forward to blowing the barn doors off at these Roses events.”

The gigs will be a blend of both new and classic material following the band’s reunion in 2012 with a world tour.

Last year they released the single “All For One” which was the first material for over 20 years and second followed.

The Stone Roses formed in 1983 but split following a series of line-up changes after the Reading Festival in 1996.
