Stone Roses reveal second Manchester screening of Shane Meadows doc Made of Stone after sell-out

By Glen Keogh

The Stone Roses have announced a second, later film screening of their new documentary Made of Stone after tickets for the original premiere sold out within hours of going on sale this morning.

The screenings of the film, directed by Shane Meadows, will take place on Thursday May 30 at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester.

Hype has surrounded the film, chronicling the band’s 2012 reunion and the subsequent live shows – which included huge hometown gigs at Heaton Park.

The premiere will be broadcast live to 100 cinemas nationwide, however the Manchester screening will feature a Q&A with the This Is England and Dead Man’s Shoes director and will feature an appearance from the band themselves.

The band will not attend the second screening but it will feature an introduction by Shane Meadows.

It will see a general release on June 5.

Meadows had ‘unprecedented access’ to previously unseen archive footage of the band and he also filmed them rehearsing and backstage ahead of their reunion shows.

The Stone Roses, formed in Manchester in 1983, released their first, self-titled album in 1989, and it went on to become one of the most influential records of the last thirty years.
