Johnny Marr has announced that he will support The Stone Roses at their two London gigs this June.

The Manchester band will headline two huge dates at London's Finsbury Park on June 7 and 8 followed by a single show at Glasgow Green on June 15. The supports for the Glasgow show are Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. Marr is the first act to confirm his appearance on the bill for the London shows, posting a message on Twitter this morning (April 2).

Johnny Marr released his first solo album, 'The Messenger', this year and picked up the Godlike Genius title at this year's NME Awards. Meanwhile, The Stone Roses documentary Made Of Stone is to open nationwide on June 5, shortly before the Finsbury Park gigs.

The film was made by This Is England director Shane Meadows and goes behind the scenes on the Manchester band's 2012 reunion, from the early stages to their celebratory hometown gigs at Heaton Park. A premiere on May 30 will be attended by the band and will be satellite-linked to 100 cinemas as part of nationwide preview screenings running concurrently with the premiere launch.




The band's only London appearance since reuniting was a secret gig at the low-capacity Village Underground venue. Glasgow Green was the scene of one of The Stone Roses' best-regarded live appearances, taking place on June 9, 1990. "When we were on stage that day, we all looked at each other, and then just went up another level," bassist Mani has said.
