Ian Brown will embark on a major UK tour later this year culminating in a homecoming gig at Manchester’s MEN Arena just before Christmas.

The former Stone Roses frontman will be showcasing his sixth solo album “My Way” which will be released on September 28th.

One of the pioneering members of the ‘Madchester’ scene, Brown has enjoyed a prolific solo career since his acrimonious split from the legendary Manchester band in 1996 with five studio albums and 12 top 40 UK singles.

Oasis and Arctic Monkeys have both cited Brown as a massive influence on their own music.

Brown will release the single ‘Stellify’ from the forthcoming album on September 21st.
