Noel Gallagher has said The Stone Roses' Manchester reunion gigs are "going to be mega".

The former Oasis man has said he is looking forward to the historic gigs, which are due to take place on June 29, 30 and July 1, and says they'll be a huge success as long as "it doesn't rain".

Gallagher said the group will have no problem living up to expectations as "they're great musicians, with great songs and them coming back is going to be mega." A sentiment backed by The Smiths' Johnny Marr who said the band won't disappoint as "they're not the sort of band who will ever let their audience down".

This week marks the 100-day countdown to The Stone Roses' Manchester Heaton Park reunion triple-header, something their musical peers have been speaking out about.

Happy Mondays' Bez said he had spoken to The Stone Roses' Mani who told him he was " really buzzing" for the shows. He added: "I haven't heard any of their new stuff but I'm sure we will very soon. I wouldn't miss those Heaton Park gigs for the world."

For more on the 100-day countdown to The Stone Roses' Heaton Park reunion gigs, including some classic tales from John Robb's unauthorised Stone Roses book The Stones Roses And The Resurrection Of British Pop:The Reunion, pick up the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now.
