The Stone Roses announce three UK shows


The Stone Roses have announced they will play three gigs on British soil next year - including a major London concert.

They will play two nights at London’s Finsbury Park on 7 and 8 June 2013 and one show at Glasgow Green on 15 June.

Primal Scream will be among the support acts at the Glasgow gig.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale at 9.30am on Friday 2 November.

The UK-based gigs will follow a string of appearances in Australia in spring, including five concerts in March 2013 as part of the Future music festival.

The Stone Roses played an intimate secret gig in London in early August, but the Finsbury Park event will be the first time Londoners will have the opportunity to see the band on a large scale.

Their three-day Heaton Park reunion extravaganza last summer is said to have generated £23m for the Manchester economy.
