Famed Manchester nightclub closed in 1997
Former Oasis member Bonehead has announced that he is giving away a piece of the Haçienda dancefloor.
Famed Manchester nightclub, The Haçienda closed in 1997 before being demolished in 2002 to make way for luxury flats. The venue was a key setting in the Manchester indie, acid house and rave scenes during the 80s and 90s.
Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs has now taken to Twitter to post a photo of a plank of wood from the floor of the Haçienda, promising to give it away for free to someone who retweets the post. A winner will be chosen at 10pm on Monday night (December 19). See his tweet beneath.
Bonehead recently said he’d be there “like a shot” if the original Oasis line-up reformed. “There’s never a day goes by when I’m not asked by someone about a reunion,” he said. “But nothing has been said to me about that. If I was asked? Then absolutely, like a shot.”
The Gallagher brothers shared had a tense relationship since the Britpop group’s 2009 split, with Liam recently criticising Noel publicly, calling him a potato, a toad, a “scary clown”, describing him as the “Ronnie Corbett of rock” and comparing his brother’s dress sense to that of Gary Barlow.
