The Stones Roses are to play more large shows in the UK next summer after the great success of their Comeback shows this year.
The Stone Roses will play Finsbury Park in London on June 7 / 8 2013 and then they will play one show at Glasgow Green on 15 June 2013. The Support Acts for the Stone Roses show at Glasgow Green include Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. The support for Glasgow has yet to be confirmed.
Tickets for the Stone Roses are on sale now.
THE STONE Roses are to make a historic return to the scene of their greatest ever gig. The band will play Glasgow Green almost 22 years to the day since their legendary gig there. The Manc rockers – Ian Brown, John Squire, Reni and Mani – will be joined by Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and Dundee’s The View. The Stone Roses played Glasgow Green on June 9, 1990, and the gig went down in the annals of British rock history. Stone Roses Tickets
While Spike Island was regarded as less than perfect, they nailed it at Glasgow Green. John Robb, author of The Stone Roses and the Resurrection of British Pop, wrote: “On June 9, the Roses played Glasgow Green, a show that was for many perhaps their finest live performance.
“The show was a killer – it was blistering and it was loud.”
Recalling the gig, Ian Brown said: “It was in a marquee and it was like a sauna with 9000 people inside. Yet, despite being a big show, it’s the most intimate one we’ve done.”
Mani added: “I will forever remember that night, it was one moment when something special happened, where we took a nation to our hearts and they took us to theirs.” Last night, The View’s manager Brendan Moon said the band were stunned by the news.
He added: “They are massive Roses fans and this is an amazing opportunity.” Demand for tickets is likely to be intense.
The band entered the Guinness Book of Records this summer for the fastest-selling UK dates in history when they sold 220,000 tickets for three dates at Manchester’s Heaton Park.The Roses have also lined up two London shows at Finsbury Park on June 7 and 8.
