Whther your post is based on any genuine knowledge or not I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised. Money, not love or songs, conquers all and this is quite clearly a repeat of last year. Spread rumour that there is panic in the Roses camp and these could be the last set of dates, further silence then more gigs. They probably realise how all safe and conservative they've become, so spreading these rumours fires people up a bit. Remember, Ian Brown was all set to go solo before the Etihad gigs - when he hasn't even currently got a record deal.
I hope Mr Alan Wren doesn't relent, and doesn't work on Ian Brown's substandard shit tunes.
