The Stone Roses have announced a pair of intimate European warm-up gigs in June ahead of their huge Heaton Park shows this summer.

The first gigs of the band's reunion are now scheduled to take place at the 4,000-capacity Razzmatazz club in Barcelona on June 8 and 9, followed by a show at Amsterdam's 5,500-capacity Heineken Music Hall on June 12. Ian Brown and co are also slated to play V Festival and T In The Park this summer, along with slots at Benicassim, Optimus Alive, Fuji Rock, Tennent's Vital, NorthSide and Hultsfred.

Meanwhile, the group recently revealed the full support bills of their Heaton Park reunion shows, with Primal Scream, Beady Eye and Plan B heading up the support bills on each of the three nights from June 28 to July 1.

Bob Marley's backing group The Wailers will play third on the bill on each of the three nights, as part of a bill The Stone Roses have described as a "mix of the legendary and the new". Primal Scream will be joined by The Vaccines and Kid British on the opening night, while Saturday's bill sees Professor Green and Hollie Cook slated to perform before Beady Eye.

Plan B will play on the closing night after The Justice Tonight Band – which comprises The Clash's Mick Jones, Pete Wylie and The Farm – and Dirty North. The latter, a dub-influenced band from Manchester district Wythenshawe, were namechecked as a band to watch by Stone Roses drummer Reni during the band's reunion press conference in October – scroll down and click below to NME's video to watch the action unfold again.
