"This is a free concert," a message on the site read.

"Fans can collect one wristband per person from the Warrington Pyramid box office (next to Warrington Parr Hall) from 4pm today."

It continued: "To qualify for a free ticket to this very special warm up show fans will need to take a Stone Roses CD inlay cover, record sleeve, official band t-shirt or Heaton Park ticket with them to the Pyramid box office in order to get a wrist band."

Doors will open at 8pm, and there will be charity collectors from Helping Uganda Schools (HUGS) collecting donations at the venue.

After the departures of drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren and guitarist John Squire, The Stone Roses split in 1996.

Following years of speculation, the band announced last year that they would reform for live shows and to record new material.

Tickets for all three homecoming shows at Manchester's Heaton Park sold out and the band have since confirmed a number of festival dates around the world.

Screenwriter Chris Coghill, who has been collaborating with the band on the upcoming drama Spike Island, has claimed that the group have recorded "three or four new tracks".
