Preview: The Stone Roses at Wembley Stadium, London


Pioneers of the ‘Madchester’ movement, The Stone Roses formed in the early eighties as young twenty-somethings. They released their first self-titled album in 1989 and their fame skyrocketed from there. Today, The Stone Roses is considered to be one of the greatest British albums, including well-known tracks such as ‘Fools Gold’, ‘She Bangs the Drums’ and ‘I Wanna Be Adored’. Five years later they released their second album Second Coming, however they broke up following a fallout the following year in 1996.

In 2011, rumours began circulating of their return, which was then confirmed 18th October that year. It took them another five years to release a single (their first in over 20 years), ‘All For One’, closely followed by ‘Beautiful Thing’; however, there has unfortunately been no sign of a third album.

There are three very different artists as support acts for the Wembley date of their stadium tour: The G-O-D who describe themselves as “like no band you’ve heard in recent years”; Sleaford Mods, another alternative two piece from Nottingham describing their music as “punk-hop rants for the working class”; and Blossoms, a rising English indie five piece. The five date arena tour is as follows:

The Stone Roses will be heading to London’s Wembley Stadium 17th June.

Tickets for all dates are available here.
