The Stone Roses will play a one-off gig in Halifax tonight ahead of their 2016 stadium shows.
The legendary Manchester band thrilled fans by announcing two intimate gigs ahead of their show dates at the Etihad Stadium next week — one in Halifax , one in Carlisle.
Fans were told about the show by the indie band via their Facebook page on Saturday, and queued in their thousands to bag tickets.
If you're heading to the gig tonight, here's everything you need to know:
Where is it?
The Stone Roses are playing the Victoria Theatre in Halifax town centre. The theatre is in Fountain Street, less than a 10-minute walk from both Halifax train station and Halifax Bus Station.
Can I still buy tickets?
Unsurprisingly, the show sold out on the same day it was announced, with thousands queuing around the block to snag theirs.
If you're feeling flush, people have been reselling tickets online with a mark ups of up to 1,400%.
Where can I park?
If you're driving to the gig, there is plenty of parking around the venue, some of it free.
After 6pm you can park for free in the St John's Lane four-hour car park, the Bull Green car park (the Bull Green multi-storey costs £3.20 for six hours) and the Westgate-Horton Street car park, all less than five minutes walk from the venue.
When does the show start?
Doors open at 7.15pm. There's a Phil Beckett DJ set 7.15pm-20:50pm
When are the Stone Roses on?
The Stone Roses are due on stage at 9pm.

When does the show end?
The Victoria Theatre said the show was due to end at 10.20pm, but that curfew was 11pm — so sometime between 10.20pm and 11pm.
Where can I get a pint?
There are two main bars in the theatre, one in the stalls and the Green Room Bar on the Circle level.
Inside the auditorium there will be kiosks selling drinks and mobile bars around the theatre.
The bars are cash only — there are cashpiints on Fountain Street close to the theatre.
When are the last trains from Halifax?
The last direct trains from Halifax to Leeds, Manchester and Huddersfield are as follows:
- Halifax to Leeds (via Bradford Interchange): 00:23
- Halifax to Manchester Victoria: 23:11
Halifax to Huddersfield: 23:47
