Fans present at the Heineken Music Hall proceeded to boo 49-year old Brown. 'A volley of beer' was then reportedly thrown at the stage but Brown took it all in his stride knowing that the crowd had expected to hear "I Am The Resurrection", which the reformed band closed Fridays show in Spain with.
"Ian just said something like 'Come on, get all your negative vibes out on me. I can take it'".
With the jeers quickly ceasing fans were left "more bemused than disappointed" with people "just looking at each other thinking 'what's going on?'". Reports that Alan Wren, drummer 'Reni', had stormed off stage were untrue, eyewitnesses say 'Reni' and guitarist John Squire hugged as they both left the stage at the end of the performance.
Expressing a desire to play an encore the band told fans "If you want us to come back, we're going up four storeys, so you have to cheer loud".
The Stone Roses - Reni, Mani, Ian Brown and John Squire recently embarked on their first tour in 16 years, kicking it off in Barcelona last weekend. They plan to play three homecoming shows at the end of June in Manchester's Heaton Park UK.
There have been several reports suggesting a problem with the drum kit used by Reni. Fan Paul Roberts who was at the recent gig said "At one point I saw Reni waving his arms wildly at the stage mixer, obviously not happy with something."
Fans have called the show "quality" and the crowd "enthusiastic". The band are next due on stage in Sweden on Thursday.
