Ian Brown Blasts Royal Family At Stone Roses Gig
The reunited band took to the stage for the first of three record-breaking outdoor gigs in its hometown, but Brown provided a moment of controversy during the triumphant concert.
Introducing their anti-royal track Elizabeth My Dear, the frontman referenced Queen Elizabeth II's recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations, telling the crowd, "This song's dedicated to those parasites down the road (in London)... celebrating 60 years of tyranny."
The huge concert was also hit by reports a bar area was "trashed" when hundreds of fans lining up for a drink were caught up in a dangerous crush.
