Fans react to The Stone Roses’ headline set at T In The Park

People were not happy at the band's decision not to televise their performance

The Stone Roses took to the main stage at T In The Park earlier this evening to headline the first night of the Scottish festival.

The estimated 70,000 attendees were out in full force for the Roses’ appearance. But fans hoping to watch back home were left disappointed after it emerged that the band had not given permission for the BBC to broadcast their performance. The band made the same decision when they last headlined T In The Park in 2012.

“Stayed up to watch stone roses from TITP and they aren’t even showing them,” wrote one disgruntled Twitter user.

Thankfully, those who were at the festival were able to remedy the situation somewhat by posting a few short clips of the band’s set on social media, a selection of which you can watch below.

The played the same set as their four shows in Manchester last month performing the likes of Roses classics ‘Fools Gold’, ‘Waterfall’, ‘She Bangs The Drums’ and ‘I Am The Resurrection’ along with new track ‘All For One’. They chose not to play ‘Beautiful Thing’ yet again.
