Stone Roses gig tickets

The Roses artwork created by John Squire wasn’t only restricted to their record sleeves, several of their concert tickets also featured unique artwork and creative designs.

The first example is from the Alexandra Palace gig in 1989, then Spike Island with its variation on the Elephant Stone artwork, followed by the lemon motif inspired Glasgow Green ticket and finally an example of the designs used on the UK Second Coming tour.

They seem all the more interesting in this day of bland uniform ticket designs.

If anyone has a scan of the Blackpool Empress Ballroom gig ticket please get in touch or leave a comment.

  1. I saw the Roses at the Feile in Cork 1995, and it was magical, i was to young to go to spike island glasgow green, blackpool, i was not allowed, my god that sunday night in Cork was amazing, will never forget it, viva le Stone Roses,

  2. Sorry to all those folks on Twitter and Facebook who saw the headline and thought it was for new Roses’ gig tickets! Totally unintentional.

  3. Never got a chance to see The Stone Roses but the debut is the soundtrack to a lot of foolish behaviour circa 1989. The anticipation for the second meant that the album was doomed to relative failure, a little unfairly.
    Why reform now, after 15 wasted years, despite Ian’s releases?

  4. Think i may have my Blackpool ticket in the house somewhere,I’ll have a look later and get it scanned if i have,ive also got an unofficial magazine somewhere (kept it cos theres a pic of the Spike Island crowd and you can make me out in it!)I’ll also scan that if you’d like.

  5. Agree with Dermot. Some things are just let be – this band were of a certain time. It’s not the same now. This is just a cynical money making exercise.

  6. I have a back stage pass from the Blackpool gig. It’s just a simple laminated piece of paper, but it is genuine.
