The Stone Roses' show at Glasgow Green in 1990 is generally considered the greatest gig the Madchester legends have ever played – and the four-piece have announced they'll be returning to the venue next year.
The show, taking place on June 15th 2013, will follow two other huge gigs south of the border in London's Finsbury Park. Fans buying Stone Roses tickets for the Glasgow Green spectacular will also be able to catch a pair of Scotland's finest bands, Primal Scream and The View, along with chart-topping troubadour Jake Bugg on the same bill.
The show serves as the second chance for Scottish music fans to catch The Stone Roses since their 2011 reunion, following their rapturously-received headline slot at this year's T In The Park.
News of the celebrated Manchester band's reunion has been 15 years in the making. After repeated declarations that their time in the spotlight was over for good, the quartet – singer Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield and drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren – finally buried the hatchet in 2011, announcing details of their resurrection in October of that year.
Playing three huge hometown shows at Heaton Park, along with headlining a string of UK and international festivals, the band more than lived up to their legendary status, something they earned during a spectacular period in the late 1980s and early '90s.
Formed in 1983, the group's self-titled 1989 debut is widely considered one of the greatest albums of all time, documenting a period in musical history when the Madchester movement was at its highpoint. Tracks such as 'I Am The Resurrection', 'She Bangs The Drums' and 'I Wanna Be Adored' have gone on to become anthems that define a generation, but are also still as popular among music fans now as they ever were. Although their sophomore album The Second Coming would take five years to make – and ultimately led to the band's 1996 split – the Stone Roses legacy has long been assured by their game-changing debut.
With a new record deal signed and widespread rave reviews under their collective belt, the band are riding the crest of a wave all over again – and their reunion is proving to certainly be no flash in the pan. Remaining characteristically silent in the press, the fantastic four are leaving their punchy performances to do the talking as they re-establish themselves as the UK's premiere live rock act.
