Ian Brown fans have shared their anger after the Stone Roses singer played his sold-out performance in Leeds without a band last night (25 September).

Brown began his first UK headlining tour in a decade at the city’s O2 Academy on Sunday night, with dates stretching over the next two weeks, culminating with a Brixton Academy show in London on October 7.

After the Leeds show, fans took to social media to share their disappointment with the set, with one describing it as Brown.[doing] karaoke and [butchering] his own tunes.”

Alongside footage of the performance, the fan tweeted: “Disappointed to see Ian Brown show up for his £40 ticket, sold out performance tonight in Leeds WITHOUT BANDS.

“I’m a lifelong fan, but it was bad. Ian Brown does karaoke and butchers his own tunes. Most were too mad to bother, but after this one I had to get out.”

Others also shared their anger at the performance, with one writing: “50 pounds to watch Ian Brown twist his head and do karaoke like he’s at Neptune’s Bar.”

Another commented on the lack of Stone Roses songs in the setlist, commenting: “I saw Ian Brown in Leeds last night. If you’re a fan of Ian Brown’s solo stuff and have tickets to his tour you’ll love it, but don’t expect Stone Roses songs or a backing band as he doesn’t have either.”

Another angry fan wrote: “Anyone who has Ian Brown tickets to the tour is selling them now. Talk about desecrating the memory of the Stone Roses – he just did it one night.”

Others defended the performance by writing: “Top night in Leeds thanks to Ian Brown. Ignore the twitter wankers, I was there and saw a sold out show full of people on their feet enjoying every minute.

Back in 2020, Brown, a vocal COVID skeptic, shared pandemic-related conspiracy theories on Twitter and released an anti-lockdown song, “Little Seed Big Tree.”

In July last year, the singer continued to voice his controversial views on COVID and the measures taken to contain the spread of the virus. “Masks, tests, jabs, digital health cards. I am exempt from all due to allergies. I’m allergic to bullshit!” he wrote on Twitter.

Last summer he was dropped from the line-up at Glasgow’s TRNSMT festival because attendees had to have a negative lateral flow test or be fully vaccinated to be admitted. He also canceled his Neighborhood Weekender gig for similar reasons.
