Tickets for the world premiere of Shane Meadows’ highly anticipated documentary The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone, sold out in one minute yesterday (April 18).

All tickets for the screening, which will take place at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester and will be attended by the band, sold out completely. Additionally, eight cinemas participating in the UK wide simultaneous broadcast also sold out, prompting the distributor Picturehouse to put on additional screens to meet demand.

Speaking about the popularity of the event, film director Shane Meadows said: "I'd love to think the tickets selling out so quick was down to the fanbase I've built up over the last 15-20 years, but I know it's them lot that everyone's really coming to see. Bald Chunkers like me don't sell out stadiums, but if we've got a Guinness World Record I would deffo take the credit."

This Is England director Meadows filmed the band for almost a year from their reunion press conference in October 2011 to their live shows in August 2012. He was granted unprecedented access to the band, so his film will include intimate scenes of early rehearsals in a remote barn as well as the only official footage from the Roses' comeback shows in Barcelona, Amsterdam, Lyon, Hamburg, Belfast, Japan and of course Heaton Park.

Meanwhile, the trailer for the film was revealed earlier this week.
