Formed in 1984, they released self-titled classic debut album five years later before playing to a 30,000-strong adoring audience at the legendary Cheshire concert.

End of 1994 saw release of follow up album Second Coming before group members began to quit amid acrimonious split. Solo careers ensued but 2011 saw Brown, Squire, Mani and Reni put their differences aside to reform and play series of massive shows before further Stony silence.

And now, touring revisited, including newly announced Yorkshire double date.
