A limited number of tickets to see The Stone Roses at their two gigs at London’s Finsbury Park in June 2013 go onsale at 10am today, priced at £55 plus booking fee.
A statement on the band’s website posted earlier this week: “Due to the granting of our license at Finsbury Park a very limited number of extra tickets for both London shows – Friday 7th June and Saturday 8th June – will be going on sale at 10am this Friday.”
The reformed Madchester legends announced three UK shows for June 2013 back in October. 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 are yet to be announced.
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.
Other major shows and tours on sale today include Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Leonard Cohen, The xx and Courteeners.
