CCTV footage showing the last known movements of Stone Roses fan Chris Brahney has been released by police.
The 22-year-old's body was found in the Manchester Ship Canal at Salford Quays 10 days after he went missing following the band's gig at Heaton Park.
The CCTV film shows him walking in Manchester city centre in the early hours of Saturday 30 June.
Officers think he was going to pick up shoes he had bought earlier that day and hidden in Rosenfields car park.
The footage shows him walking from the car park on Thorniley Brow, near to Shudehill Metro link station, to Deansgate,
He was wearing sunglasses on his head.
Mr Brahney had lost his phone at the concert and became separated from friends.
Police later said they believed his phone could be in Edinburgh.
It is thought that prior to travelling into the city centre, he may have used the park-and-ride facility at Bowlee Park, in Heywood Old Road, towards Middleton, shortly before midnight.
Further inquiries suggest he was seen outside the Maccabi Sports Centre on Bury Old Road just after midnight.
Detective Inspector Debbie Oakes said: "Officers are continuing to offer support to Christopher's family, and we are trying to give them the answers they so desperately need.
"The post-mortem examination brought an inconclusive result, but, as is routine, samples have been sent for toxicology tests.
"We do, however, have a number of lines of inquiry that we are vigorously pursuing, including CCTV footage that could help us make more sense of Chris' final movements, information from witnesses following the fantastic public response and other avenues for us to pursue.
"We understand that Chris walked from Shudehill, past a number of pubs, to Deansgate.
"Anyone who saw Chris in Manchester city centre, carrying a Primark bag, is urged to call the police as soon as possible."
