In solidarity with the photographers affiliated to the NUJ (good friends of FC United), who boycotted the Stone Roses gigs over a copyright disagreement, A Fine Lung will not be providing a review of the three-day extravanza.

But we did manage to hack into the Chadderton Evening Chronicle’s twitter feed and it is presented here, by way of preserving such an amazing weekend for Manchester:
