Jar of air captured at Stone Roses gig reaches bids of £65,000 on eBay...for real


So, this was what it looked like when The Stone Roses returned to Manchester...

The band performed at the 60,000-capacity Etihad Stadium from Wednesday to Sunday last week.

And, yeah, the gigs were a pretty big deal. But a big enough deal to sell a jar full of air captured at the stadium for over £65,000? Really?!

Well, it seems that some people out there think that's a reasonable price to pay, after a seller, from Deeside in Flintshire, listed the jar - complete with an authenticity certificate before you question if it's real - on eBay. The highest bid so far is £65,900, to be exact.

They've written in the description for the product: "All the atmosphere, anticipation and ecstasy of 60,000 people singing their hearts out - captured forever in this glass jar."

Which, if we're honest, we're just not sure we understand. No, in fact, we definitely don't understand it.

The seller also goes on to say in the description: "I swear if you place your ear next to the jar you can still hear a faint reverberation of Squire's solo". Just so you know, they captured the air during I Am The Resurrection on June 18.

And if you're suddenly feeling the need to splurge (we're sure you're not, but you never know) then put a note in your diary - bids are due to end on eBay for the jay on Saturday 26 at 7pm. Just don't forget that extra £2.80 for postage too...
