David and Brooklyn Beckham went to see The Stone Roses - and fans on social media squealed


David Beckham shared his love of The Stone Roses with his 17-year-old son Brooklyn - and his 24 million followers on Instagram.

The former Manchester United ace returned to the city where he is regarded as an icon on Wednesday night to see the Mancunian band. Ironically, the venue was the Etihad Stadium, the home of United's bitter rivals Manchester City.

But none of that mattered because the father-of-four's excitement was there for all to see. "Wow I have no words ... Unbelievable night on Manchester with the boys," he posted to Instagram.

He added: "Wow what a night that I could spend with just another Roses fan that happens to be my boy."

And ahead of their musical treat, David posted an image of Stone Roses merchandise with the words, "Here we go".

Not to be outdone, Brooklyn shared a group photo, accompanied by the words: "With the ladz."

On Twitter, some of the band's fans were gutted to have missed the Beckhams.

In May, The Stone Roses released their first new material in over two decades. The indie band's upbeat comeback single, All For One, precedes a number of live shows this summer.

All For One is the band's first new material since 1995 before they split. In 2011 the band reunited, but it has taken a further five years for them to release any original material.
