Ian Brown is set to perform live before former Manchester United and England full-back Gary Neville's testimonial.

Writing on his Twitter page,, Neville wrote: "Big news! The legend that is Ian Brown is singing the teams out at my testimonial! Wow! Honour for me! This is the one!"

The last section of Neville's tweet is a reference to The Stone Roses' 1989 song 'This Is The One', which Manchester United run out to when they play home games at Old Trafford. The tweet seems to indicate that Brown will be performing it before the match.

Brown is known to be a big Manchester United fan and is a regular at their games.

Neville's testimonial will take place on May 24 against Italian side Juventus at Old Trafford, with proceeds from the game being donated to sustainable project charities. For more information about the game visit
