Miles Kane rounded off a triumphant day supporting The Stone Roses at their second Finsbury Park show with an intimate, chaotic gig at London club night This Feeling.

Arriving on stage around midnight, Kane, who released second album 'Don't Forget Who You Are' on June 3, rattled through a set largely made up of new songs at the Queen Of Hoxton, ending with a boisterous stage invasion.

He began with 'Tonight' and kept up the pace throughout, with 'Give Up', 'Inhaler' and 'Taking Over' drawing the best reactions. "Thanks so much, this is amazing," he said finally, before launching into 'Come Closer'. "Playing venues like this is the reason we play music".

Speaking to NME after the show, he said of his momentous day: "I'm absolutely buzzing at the moment. I wasn't sure what to expect before the Roses gig. When we got there people were sitting on the grass, enjoying the sun and a few beers. By the time we walked on stage there was a sea of heads and everyone was there to go mad. It was incredible. It's been a brilliant few weeks. I feel like I've still got a long way to go but I'm on the right track."

Earlier in the afternoon he'd opened the second day of The Stone Roses' Finsbury Park shows, and was followed by Johnny Marr and Public Image Ltd. Read a report of Friday's Roses show here.

This Feeling will also host Kasabian's post-gig party after their headlining slot at Hard Rock Calling on Saturday June 29. Tickets for the warehouse party at Oval Space are available from This Feeling's website.

'Give Up'
'First Of My Kind'
'Better Than That'
