Band perform first of two warm-up gigs at La Cigalle in Paris
The Stone Roses have freshened up their reunion setlist by dusting off three songs they haven’t played since reforming last year.
The band took to the stage at La Cigalle in Paris last night (June 3) as a warm-up for their two huge London gigs this weekend (June 7/8). Featured on the setlist were the tracks ‘Elephant Stone’ and ‘Going Down’, both unplayed since 1990 as well as ‘Breaking Into Heaven’ – last played by the group in 1996.
The Stone Roses are due to play La Cigalle again tonight (June 4) and fans will be looking to the French setlists for hints as to what the band might play at London’s Finsbury Park this weekend. However, fans won’t be expecting to hear any new material after guitarist John Squire said last week that despite having written new tracks, the Roses won’t be performing them live.
The band will follow their London shows with a gig at Glasgow Green on June 15, with support set to come from Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. Meanwhile, The Stone Roses’ documentary film Made Of Stone is set to open in cinemas nationwide tomorrow (June 5), coinciding nicely with the Finsbury Park gigs.
The band’s only previous London live date since reuniting was a secret gig at the low-capacity Village Underground venue last August.
The Stone Roses setlist last night was:
‘I Wanna Be Adored’
‘Ten Storey Love Song’
‘Shoot You Down’
‘She Bangs the Drums’
‘This Is the One’
‘Made Of Stone’
‘Breaking Into Heaven’
‘I Am The Resurrection’
