We have festival favourite Chris Helme coming back to Macc! Chris Helme, is the frontman of The Seahorses. The 1990s band formed by Stone Roses’ guitarist John Squire, who released their sole and UK No. 1 album in 1997 to an outpouring of adoration from fans at home and around the world, and defined a moment in time for hundreds of thousands of people.
