In the last few years we have witnessed the reformations of various legendary bands, including Blur, Suede, Pulp and, er… Steps, but today’s announcement confirmed one of the more unlikely comebacks yet.
The original line-up have not performed together since 1995, and have spent much of the past fifteen years denying that they’ll ever get back together, with guitarist John Squire even creating an artwork in 2009 stating that he has “no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses“. However, people’s feelings can change and singer Ian Brown is said to be facing a huge divorce bill having split from his wife Fabiola Quiroz.
The band apparently are looking to write new material and perform a world tour after playing two dates at Manchester’s Heaton Park on June 29th and 30th 2012. On the dates, Brown has stated: “This is a live resurrection, and you’re invited, so you better be there”
Tickets will be available from their new website from 9.30 this Friday (21st October 2011)
