The first professionally-shot live footage of The Stone Roses in 16 years has appeared online - scroll down to watch it.

The five-minute video shows the band performing 'I Wanna Be Adored' at Benicassim on July 14. The song was the opening number of the band's 16-song set at the Spanish festival. Frontman Ian Brown kicks off with a few words of Spanish before grabbing a glowstick as the band begins to play. However, professionally-shot footage of other songs from the performance have yet to appear online.

The Stone Roses are currently on tour in Asia, where they have shows lined up in Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea. They will return to Europe in August and have UK dates scheduled at V Festival on August 18 and 19 and Belfast's Vital Festival on August 22.

Earlier this summer, the reformed band played a trio of rapturously-received homecoming shows at Heaton Park in Manchester. A canister of "captured atmosphere" from the first date later attracted bids of over £500 on eBay.

The band also deliver a well-received set at Scotland's T In The Park on July 7 - their first performance north of the border in 17 years. During the set, Brown cheekily referred to the UK's reigning monarch as "Queen witch" and took the opportunity to show off his Scottish accent.
