If you weren't among the lucky 225,000 fans who attended the Stone Roses' recent reunion shows at Heaton Park in Manchester, England, well, breathe easy: there's an item on eBay that will make you feel just like you were there! It's a bottle of "captured atmopshere" from the show. Seriously.

Ten CCs of air from the Manchester band's hometown comeback show is currently selling for $877 on the auction site. This is "your chance to own your very own piece of Mancunian history," the seller notes, adding that the air "was collected around 10:00 P.M. and is sealed in an airtight container." We'd hope so.

In a Q&A section towards the bottom of the auction page, the seller also mentions that the item can't be shipped outside of the UK, that you probably can't hear the Stone Roses if you open the container and that the air was collected when the band was playing "This Is the One" and "She Bangs the Drums."

How much would you pay for this "captured atmosphere"? Let us know in the comments!
