The Stone Roses - Tickets For The Stone Roses Documentary Premiere Sells Out In One Minute

Reunited British rockers The Stone Roses are still proving popular in their native Manchester, England - tickets for the premiere of a new tell-all documentary about the band sold out in just one minute on Thursday (18Apr13).

Director Shane Meadows' The Stone Roses: Made of Stone film, which documents the road to their big comeback gig last May (12), is due to be unveiled at a special screening at the Victoria Warehouse on 30 May (13), with frontman Ian Brown and his bandmates in attendance - and fans have snapped up the chance to join them for the premiere.

Eight other cinemas across the U.K., where simultaneous broadcasts of the event are due to be held, also sold out moments after stubs were made available to the public.

Responding to the overwhelming reception, Meadows says, "I'd love to think the tickets selling out so quick was down to the fan base I've built up over the last 15 to 20 years, but I know it's them lot (sic) that everyone's really coming to see."

The news will give the Stone Roses a big boost as they prepare to hit the main stage for the second weekend of the Coachella festival in California on Friday (19Apr13) - the cult band's set at the annual event last week (12Apr13) failed to keep attendees entertained as the huge crowd that had gathered for fellow headliners Blur noticeably began to drift away as Brown kicked off their performance.
