The Stone Roses announce London and Glasgow dates
Manchester band will return to Glasgow Green, scene of victorious 1990 gig, and London
The group will play two nights in London’s Finsbury Park on June 7 and 8 followed by a single show at Glasgow Green on June 15. The supports for the Glasgow show are Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. Supports for London will be announced shortly.
The band's only London appearance since reuniting was a secret gig at the tiny 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.
The Stone Roses recently revealed that they will carry on playing together next year, announcing a series of shows at the Future Music Festival in Australia next March.
The band recently entered the Guinness World Book Of Records for the fastest selling rock concerts in UK history. The 220,000 tickets for their Heaton Park comeback gigs at the end of June and beginning of July sold out in 68 minutes.
Tickets for the London and Glasgow shows go on sale at 9.30am on Friday November 2, priced at £55 + Booking Fee. To check the availability of Stone Roses tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
