IAN BROWN was joined by NOEL GALLAGHER and old bandmate MANI onstage at the MANCHESTER APOLLO last night.

The ex-Stone Roses singer performed the gig (October 18) as part of his solo tour to support his current album ’Solarized’. However, in addition to his own songs, Brown performed many Roses classics - the first time he’s done it in his home town in almost a decade.

During the encore Gallagher came onto the stage and helped Brown on recent single ’Keep What Ya Got’. The Oasis man co-wrote the song, and provided backing vocals and lead guitar.

Later in the set, Brown went to the side of the stage, and persuaded Mani, who played bass with Brown in the Roses to come out and take a bow. The bassist had been spotted earlier in the night prompting speculation he would perform some songs live, but that didn’t come to pass.

”Let’s have a big hand for Mani”, Brown smiled. “Mani’s in the house!”

The audience then went crazy as the pair hugged and waved.

For the final encore Brown was joined on stage by DJ James Lavelle, and did the two songs he recorded with UNKLE - ’Be There’ and ’R.E.I.G.N’.

The setlist ran:
’Destiny Of Circumstance’
’Sally Cinnamon’
’(Song For My) Sugar Spun Sister’
’Where Angels Play’
’Made Of Stone’
’She Bangs The Drums’
’Golden Gaze’
’Love Like A Fountain’
’If Dolphins Were Monkeys’
’Longsight M13’
’The Sweet Fantastic’
’Forever And A Day’
’Time Is My Everything’
’I Wanna Be Adored’
’Love Bug’
’Keep What Ya Got’
’Be There’
