In what is definitely one of the biggest music related stories of 2011, the Stone Roses held a press conference today to announce that they are reuniting for 2 shows and a world tour in 2012. This will be the first time in 15 years that original band members, singer Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani, and drummer Reni, will all play together. It was also announced that the Stone Roses are currently working on new music and to expect new songs on this tour.
The first two shows will take place at Manchester’s Heaton Park on Friday, June 29th and Saturday the 30th. Tickets go on sale at 9:30am (UK time) this Friday, October 21 and can be ordered from the following:
And to anyone who is able to get tickets and is going to these first two shows, yeah, I’m jealous, but hopefully they make it over here to the U.S. although a trip to England is in order for 2012 though!
