Singer will hotfoot from North to East London after opening for the Roses
Following his support slot at the Roses’ massive outdoor gig in north London, Kane will head east to the Queen Of Hoxton venue in Shoreditch, where he will perform live again. Tickets are £6 before 9pm, going up to £8 after 9pm, and will be available on a first come, first served basis.
Miles Kane will appear at Finsbury Park alongside fellow support acts Johnny Marr and Public Image Ltd. This gig will mark the first time Public Image Ltd have played in the Finsbury Park area since their gigs at the nearby Rainbow Theatre on Christmas Day and Boxing Day 1978.

The Stone Roses will follow-up their London shows with headline slot at Isle Of Wight Festival on June 14 and then a gig at Glasgow Green on June 15, with support sets coming from Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. Meanwhile, The Stone Roses’ documentary Made Of Stone opened in cinemas nationwide this Wednesday (June 5), coinciding neatly with the Finsbury Park gigs. The film was made by This Is England director Shane Meadows and goes behind the scenes on the Manchester band’s 2012 reunion, from the early stages to their celebratory hometown gigs at Heaton Park.
The band’s only previous London appearance since reuniting was a secret gig at the low-capacity Village Underground venue last summer. Glasgow Green, meanwhile, was the scene of their most seminal live appearances, taking place on June 9, 1990. “When we were on stage that day, we all looked at each other, and then just went up another level,” bassist Mani has said.
