Reformed Madhester legends to release limited number of tickets for London gigs
The Stone Roses will release a limited number of extra tickets for their two gigs at London’s Finsbury Park in June 2013.
A statement on the band’s website reads: “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.
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.
