A live performance means music, bands and people playing to entertain the fans in attendance. What if we told you, that’s not always the case, as things can change based on the situation? It happened with Stone Roses’ Ian Brown who performed solo, and it was more like karaoke during his live event gig in Glasgow.
He is currently touring the UK with his solo hits and giving a performance like no other. While people had different thoughts about this, with some thinking that they were promised a live performance and they were treated with karaoke, some others had different thoughts.
GLASGOW. HATERS HATE AND LOVERS LOVE! https://t.co/QlfHexHeW8

The 90-minute set saw some people walk off mid-performance as they didn’t get their money’s worth. Some even took the time to jokingly talk about his hit solo single F.E.A.R. which they abbreviated stands for “For Everyone A Refund”.
Saw Ian Brown in Leeds last night. If you are a fan of Ian Brown's solo stuff and you have tickets for his tour, you'll love it but don't go expecting Stone Roses songs or a backing band as he has neither. Decent night though 🎶 pic.twitter.com/NqDJ315ymW

It was quite an experience for the fans on the 26th of September, and he plans to continue his tours in Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham and London. It would be interesting to see how the other shows perform after the current event.
Ian Brown’s solo stuff has always been more hip hop and beat orientated so his new set up works. It’s not like he’s black sabbath or summat is it.

There were more supporters of his work than there were haters and that’s a great sign considering that everyone has work to do and the singer performed to his limits. These praises mean that people are ok with a single performance and a karaoke.
