Stone Roses reunionStone Roses reunion, Band appear together for the first time in 15 years to announce two concerts in Manchester meeting next year, followed by world tour Some will say that they are making fools gold, others wonder if – when entering middle age – they just want to be worshiped. But Stone Roses fans only care about one thing: the band has confirmed that have met with two concerts planned for next year, followed by a world tour.

They will play the new songs, but when asked about a new album of Ian Brown said: “We hope so, but told us that before we did,” adding: “Let it ride until the wheels fall off, as we did last time. ”

Despite legal disputes with record companies, fall-outs and guarantees of vehement than ever will reunite the original lineup – singer Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary “Mani” Mounfield and drummer Alan “Reni” Wren – announced two concerts at Heaton Park in Manchester on 29 and June 30, 2012.

The long-awaited news – the resurrection has been some time coming, with rumors circulating for several years – was announced at a packed Soho Hotel in central London.

The concert program will be the first time the band have played together in 16 years, since a widely panned performance at the Reading Festival in 1996, which lead NME describing interpretation of Brown I am the resurrection as “more like the crucifixion eternal “.

The Stone Roses exploded onto the British indie scene in 1989 with his eponymous album, considered one of the greatest debuts of all time. Its psychedelic sound spoke to a generation of ravers in the second “Summer of Love.” In his hometown of Manchester hundreds of fans gathered outside the sold-out concerts, and at the height of his fame about 30,000 people attended the “Woodstock baggy” Spike Island near Widnes in 1990.

But the group became trapped in a long legal battle with Silvertone label, unable to release new music before a court case left them free to sign with Geffen. Track your debut, the Second Coming was finally released in 1994, but failed to meet inflated expectations.

Drummer Reni left in 1995, followed a year later by guitarist and songwriter John Squire – whose riffs that they are as integral to the sound of the Stone Roses “as the distinctive voice of Brown – and the band broke up the same year. Brown went on to create six albums, bassist Mani joined Primal Scream, while Squire, who created the artwork for the band’s first album, he formed the seahorse short before deciding to concentrate on the art.

There seemed no way back. Escudero a work of art created in 2009 which led to the words. “I have no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses”

He said then: “I’d rather live my life to try to rehash it, even when Ian and I were still double dating as we did in our teens then the possibility of a meeting does not interest me at all.”. The fight between teenage friends continued, apparently Brown’s denial of an olive branch of Squire, who he said had sent him a song. In an interview with Word magazine in 2009, Brown said: “It really sent me a song 18 months ago – well, it sounded nice, I liked it – but my children turned and said, ‘Dad, you can not work on that – sold out, is not he left him for dead? “.

Rumors of a return circulated in April this year, following a meeting between Brown and Squire at the funeral of the mother of bassist Mani. But it was quickly dismissed by Mani, who said, no doubt: “.. Please fck and leave it alone, is not true and is not happening”

But the obstacles in the path of lucrative meeting have been shunted aside. The news puts them in good company: Pulp to meet this year for a successful comeback concert series, the special meeting in 2009 for its 30th anniversary, and Take That have proved creaky knees need not mean a diminished fan base.

Undoutedly questions asked about Brown’s vocal abilities – once described by The Guardian Alexis Petridis critic as “a horn off, sad, like a goose wearing a ski mask shot” – and if the band, now in middle age, be able to capture the excitement of his first heady days. But the accusations that are being sold, which could respond to the letter of I Want to Be Adored, “I have to sell my soul / It’s already in me.”
