‘Resurrection’ formed in 1998 under the name ‘The Complete Stone Roses’ & based in Glasgow, Scotland. They have toured with many celebrities including Mani (The Stone Roses/ex Primal Scream) with whom they performed live onstage with, at the world famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, when Mani jumped up on stage to a rapturous applause & performed ‘She Bangs The Drums’ with the lads. The venue erupted & the DF Concerts staff were quoted as saying “It was the best night we have seen in here for a long time”. They have toured with Inspiral Carpets members Clint Boon & Tom Hingley & also with Phil Smith (Oasis/Noel Gallagher Tour DJ) & have many celebrity fans from bands such as The Stone Roses/Primal Scream/The High/Inspiral Carpets/The Smiths/The Seahorses/Shed 7/808 State/Death In Vegas/ New Order/Freebass & Snow Patrol among others. They performed 2 songs live on BBC Ireland’s The 11th Hour music show & STV News showed their live performance from Stockton On Tees. They have been mentioned in the book about Ian Brown – Already In Me & in the updated version of John Robb’s book, simply titled ‘The Stone Roses’. The publications the band featured in also include The NME, Melody Maker, Q Magazine, The Sunday Mail, The Daily Record, The Sun, The Irish Times, The Big Issue & so on.
They have played many sold out shows all over the UK & Ireland to hundreds of thousands of Stone Roses fans, including 6500 at The Point Theatre in Dublin alone & were given this show, from none other than ‘Ian Brown’ himself. The band toured for a total of 3yrs alongside Mani & Oasis DJ Phil Smith & had many great nights together on tour. Some quotes from this period in the bands history are mind blowing with Mani quoted as saying “They do the songs justice & sound better than we did before we split”. The quotes & reviews are astounding from their live performances around the UK & Ireland. The band reformed last Winter 2014 & sold out their first 3 shows & continue to sell out shows around the country.
Resurrection perfect the sound from The Roses records/CD’s & pride themselves on this sound, not the Roses live sound. Come along & make your own judgement as we don't suggest to be the UK's best or even the World's best tribute act, as some Roses bands are claiming! We want the fans to make up their own mind & not be misled by claims & suggestions to the contrary.
