The gigs – the band’s first live performances since playing London and Glasgow in 2013 – were first announced following posters of lemons appearing in record stores across Manchester. Images of the lemon, which has appeared on the band’s posters and album artwork in the past, appeared around the city with sightings confirmed at Close barber’s shop on Greater Ancoats Street and the Vinyl Revival record store on Hilton Street.

The Stone Roses are also now second favourites to headline next year’s Glastonbury Festival, according to bookmakers Betfair.

The band are now listed behind Adele as among the bookies’ top tips to headline the Saturday leg of the Worthy Farm event in 2016.
