Ian Brown, Late Of The Pier join UNKLE to open new London venue

Former Stone Roses man to appear live in the capital this month

Ian Brown will join UNKLE for an exclusive gig to launch a new London venue later this month.

The Manchester legend will appear onstage with James Lavelle‘s dance project at the launch of new venue Matter, at the 02 complex in North Greenwich, on September 19.

Brown has previously contributed vocals to UNKLE tracks ‘Reign’ and ‘Be There’. He has only performed live with them once before, at the Brixton Academy in the south of the UK capital earlier this year.

Other UNKLE guests will include Ian Astbury of The Cult, alongside longtime collaborators Gavin Clarke and Joel Cadbury.

Completing the bill are Late Of The Pier and Iglu & Hartly. BBC Radio 1‘s Huw Stephens will DJ.

Matter is the third live venue at the 02, a 2,600-capacity club space.
