The Stone Roses announce stadium gigs

The Stone Roses are set to return to the stage for two mammoth stadium gigs.

The 'I Wanna Be Adored' hitmakers - who haven't performed together since 2013 - will reunite for two concerts at Manchester's Etihad Stadium in June before they headline Scotland's T in the Park festival on Friday July 8, 2016.

Sharing the news on Twitter, they posted a photo of the tour poster, revealing they would be joined by special guests for the two shows at the home of football team Manchester City on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 June.

The group - which includes Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani and Reni - fuelled speculation of a reunion earlier today when a series of posters featuring their lemon logo mysteriously appeared in Manchester shops.

A shop keeper whose store featured the posters said he had been "sworn to secrecy about an announcement due in the next 24 hours."

Each poster contained 16 lemons, sparking rumours it was an announcement for next year.

A firm was also registered with all four members listed as staff and it is expected they will use this for their new ventures.

Tickets for the Manchester concerts will go on sale on Friday 6 November at 9.30am GMT and will be available from gigsandtours.com and ticketmaster.co.uk.
