The Stone Roses' drummer Alan 'reni' Wren missed the premiere of the band's tell-all documentary on Thursday night (30May13) after falling ill.

Director Shane Meadows' The Stone Roses: Made of Stone film, which documents the road to the band's big comeback gigs last year (12), was launched in Manchester, England, but Wren skipped the screening in a bid to improve his health before the group's concert in London's Finsbury Park next week (begs03Jun13).

Singer Rowetta attended the premiere and told her fans, "The boys are here... Reni not here as not well but 3 Roses and director."

Tickets for the film's launch event sold out in just one minute when they went onsale in April (13), and the rest of the band and the moviemaker hit the red carpet outside Manchester's Victoria Warehouse venue.

Meadows, who idolised the band growing up, hopes his movie broadens the rockers' fan base, and admits he was thrilled to see the broad range of the audience at their 2012 concerts.

He is quoted by Britain's The Sun as saying, "You only have to look at the film and see the kids that were at the gigs. There were plenty of people who weren't even born when they made that first album - so it's already happening."
