Public Image Ltd. have been confirmed as support for The Stone Roses at London's Finsbury Park on June 8.

PiL were among the names featured on an unconfirmed leaked support line-up for the Madchester legend's gigs which will take place on June 7 and 8 gigs. Dizzee Rascal, Miles Kane and The Courteeners are also rumoured to appear.

The Finsbury Park gig will be something of a homecoming for PiL frontman John Lydon, who was born in the same area of north London. This gig will mark the first time Public Image Ltd have played Finsbury Park since Christmas Day and Boxing Day 1978 at the Rainbow Theatre.

According to information leaked by the Gigslutz website, the full line-up and stage times as reported are as follows:

Friday June 7

17:15 - Rudimental
18:15 - The Courteeners
19:20 - Dizzee Rascal
20:40 - The Stone Roses

Saturday June 8

17:15 - Miles Kane
18:15 - Johnny Marr
19:20 - Public Image Ltd
20:40 - The Stone Roses

The Stone Roses will follow-up their London shows with a gig at Glasgow Green on June 15, with support set to come from Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. 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.
