The Stone Roses Announce Three Reunion Shows in 2016
Residents of Manchester, England, woke up this morning to a bunch of mysterious posters with the Stone Roses' lemon logo hanging around town, but it didn't take all that long for the meaning behind the guerrilla marketing to be revealed. The pioneering Madchester outfit will reunite for three shows in 2016 – all in the U.K.
Check out the teaser posters:
The band (frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary Manny "Mani" Mounfield and drummer Alan "Reni" John Wren) will play two concerts at Manchester's Etihad Stadium on June 17 and 18, then they'll headline Scotland's T in the Park festival on July 8. Here's the official poster:
The Stone Roses formed in 1983 and released just two full-length albums – their self-titled 1989 breakthrough and 1994's Second Coming. They broke up in 1996, but reformed in 2011 for a few dates at festivals and for shows around Manchester. Back then, 220,000 tickets for the Manchester gigs sold out in just 68 minutes.
