The gates of hell have opened and out popped The Stone Roses for Manchester reunion concerts

Genuine hell raisers set to reform

In yet another reunion announcement The Stone Roses confirm they have reformed as a band and are set to tour once again with some new material thrown in for good measure. The legendary hell raising four-piece - Ian, John, Mani and Reni - have announced two massive shows at Manchester's Heaton Park on Friday June 29 and Saturday June 30, 2012. The dates will form part of an extensive world tour.

The band have already been into a rehearsal studio to start work on the set-list for the one of the most eagerly anticipated reunifications ever.

This news will not come as a great surprise to anyone, rumours have been rife for years gaining momentum this year and working into a frenzy in the last few weeks. The Manchester band, which was formed in 1983, recorded just two albums before they dissolved in 1996. The planned gigs will be the first time the band have played together in 15 years, since a widely panned performance at the Reading festival in 1996.

Major players from the Madchester scene way back in the day, The Stone Roses are back after their acrimonious break up. The band are credited with influencing the music scene with their 1989 self-titled debut which is regarded as a seminal work, combining psychedelic pop and funky basslines.

In essence this is a band who have it all in bucket loads, a huge combined talent that led to a debut album that is, in some circles, credited with being 'one of the greatest debuts of all time', sublime performances, dreadful performances, massive success, massive failure, huge falls from grace, separation, law suits, wrangling, hatred and love - rock and roll at its most subversive and yet most definitive - the Stone Roses encompass it all.

The band will play two shows at Heaton Park, Manchester, on 29 and 30 June before an "extensive" world tour.
