Manchester United football legend Eric Cantona also joins Mick Jones onstage at Lyon festival
The Stone Roses played 1989’s classic ‘The Stone Roses’ in full last night for the first time since their reunion.
The band, who were headlining Les Nuits de Fourvière Festival in Lyon, France, played all tracks from their debut album, including ‘Elizabeth My Dear’, which they have so far not played on any of their official reunion dates.
Earlier on in the festival, Manchester United football legend Eric Cantona joined former Clash man Mick Jones onstage for a rendition of the band’s 1982 single ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’.
The Stone Roses were headlining the Lyon date of the Justice Tonight tour, which is supporting the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

Last night’s show was the final date before the band’s sell-out homecoming gigs in Manchester’s Heaton Park, which will kick off on Friday (June 29). The band played a last-minute surprise comeback gig on May 23 in Warrington – which was their first performance in 16 years.
