The Manchester band are currently working on their third album which is expected to be released later this year.
The Stone Roses have announced two intimate warm-up gigs ahead of their four-night run at the Etihad stadium in Manchester on June 15, 17, 18 and 19. The band will play Halifax Victoria Theatre on Tuesday June 7 and Carlisle Sands Centre on Wednesday June 8. Both venues have a capacity of around 1,500.
The Stone Roses have announced two intimate June gigs.
The band made the announcement on their official Facebook page on Saturday morning (June 4) along with details on how fans can get tickets. Tickets were only available to fans who had purchased a Stone Roses vinyl, concert ticket or T-shirt and were capped at two per person.
The shows come just one week before the band will play four nights at Manchester’s Etihad stadium. Last month they released their first new song in 21 years ‘All For One’ and confirmed that work on their third album had begun.
The band are currently recording at Church Studios in London and frontman Ian Brown has described the new album as sounding ‘glorious’. There’s no word yet however on when fans can expect it to be released.
The Stone Roses first shot to fame in 1989 with their self titled debut album. Their follow-up The Second Coming came in 1994, but the band broke up soon after its release. In October 2011 they held a press conference to announced they were finally reuniting and would embark on a tour. Seven months later they played their first gig together in 16 years at Warrington Parr Hall.
