“This is the one”
 
30 years on from The Stone Roses’ legendary Spike Island concert, organisers of a very special commemorative event are pleased to confirm it’s full steam ahead for the festivities planned this Spring.
 
With its festival licence fully approved, Halton Borough Council has given the green light to: SPIKE ISLAND: THE RESURRECTION – a festival that is shaping up to be the biggest tribute-themed festival in the world.
 
Taking place on 16th May 2020 and upon the original site it took place, SPIKE ISLAND: THE RESURRECTION is a one day festival that will pay homage to one of the greatest concerts of all time. With a headline set by THE CLONE ROSES (the UK’s No.1 tribute to The Stone Roses), this celebratory day of music will aim to re-capture the sights, sounds and atmosphere of what was a momentous day in musical history. The event will also see performances from other top-tier tribute acts including: OAS-IS, THE SMITHS LTD, HAPPY MONDAZE, THE JAMES EXPERIENCE, and TRUE ORDER; plus a number of original faces from the iconic Madchester scene including CLINT BOON (Inspiral Carpets man),  BEZ (Happy Mondays), ANDY (808 STATE), DAVE BOOTH (Hacienda DJ), MC TUNES (Dust Junkys).
 
Making history in its own right, ‘Spike Island – The Resurrection’ will be the only live performance to have been held at the Widnes site since the Stone Roses headlined in 1990. The event is also on course to become the biggest tribute-themed festival of all time.
 
With 75% sold already and over 5000 tickets snapped-up on its first day alone, the public reception to the festival has been nothing short of phenomenal and organisers would like to thank those who have shown their support for the event already. Remaining tickets are on sale now, available from: www.spikeisland2020.com
 
Offering his approval for the upcoming event, Halton Borough Cllr Rob Polhill said:
 
“Following the announcement that an events licence has been granted to Lightbulb Festivals Ltd, I am delighted that 30 years after the Stone Roses played at Spike Island a re-creation of that concert featuring tribute band The Clone Roses will take place on that site”
 
He added: “That legendary gig is still talked about fondly all these years later and we know from the many enquiries that we have had over the years that many people have wanted to see it repeated. Our park at Spike Island is ideal for this kind of event and our officers will now be working closely with Lightbulb Festivals Ltd to ensure we have a successful and safe event for the fans to enjoy.”
Organisers of the event – Lightbulb Festivals, added:
 
“We are pleased to say that Halton Borough Council (as the licensing authority), approved the premises licence for our “Spike Island – The Resurrection” Festival at Spike Island, Widnes on 16th May 2020. We would like to take the opportunity to thank those from the Halton Borough Council; Cheshire Police;  Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service; and other agencies that have worked with us on this element of planning. We look forward to working with them and other partners in the continued safe planning, and indeed safe delivery of this Festival.”
30 years on THE CLONE ROSES invite you to re-capture the magic of that most famous of gigs what promises to be a Second Coming like no other…
