    Yeah, I did too. Yelled out his name a few times...mainly cus I couldn't see him as he was tucked in the corner. Fun show (sparse crowd though...people cant come out to support the genius of Primal Scream and Brian Jonestown Massacre? *scratches head*).

    But this is very exciting news. Was only going to attend Friday, but if The Roses play another day I'll HAVE to come out. 'Waterfall', 'This is the One'...my God.

    Also, I have seen Ian Brown live (Golden Greats tour in LA) and it was terrible. Tons of sound issues. But it's always been about the spirit...and Reni's drumming (where has he been all these years? someone said he had an H problem. dunno). And John is a badass axeman. Just seeing the original lineup together would be insane. Maybe Ian can lipsync his part (j/k...sort of).

    Are you trying to make me cry?

    Also, don't forget about The Pixies too. They are only touring Europe this year.

    goddamnit. Now I am pissed. I decided to start listening to the Stone Roses album again and I forgot how fucking amazing some of these songs are. Goddamnit. I do and don't want this. GV better have a "No Train wreck" cause in that damn contract and not pay them until AFTER the show.

    I wouldn't get worked up about it. This probably won't happen.

    The Stone Roses WON'T reform for summer tour 13 years after their split

    By Daily Mail Reporter

    Reports that Ian Brown is to rejoin his former group The Stone Roses for a summer tour have been denied by the singer's publicist today.

    It was claimed that the band would be reuniting after convincing lead singer Brown to return.

    However a spokesperson for the 46-year-old said today, 'We know nothing about a reunion. Ian is working on his new studio album which is due out later this year.'


    Summer tour: Manchester band The Stone Roses won't be reforming this year

    A national newspaper had reported that the band were lined up to play 21 UK gigs and there was even talk of a US date, with the Coachella Festival in California a possibility.

    The Mirror said the tour would coincide with the release of a remastered 20th anniversary edition of the band's debut album The Stone Roses in June.


    No change of heart: Lead singer Ian Brown pictured at the Q awards two years ago

    Brown, who went on to have a successful solo career after the group split in 1996, was said to have been originally unsure about reuniting with his former bandmates but the paper reported he had been persuaded by drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren, bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield and guitarist John Squire.

    ‘It's taken a lot of time and effort to get Ian to agree, but he's finally signed on the dotted line.

    'The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table,' a source is quoted as telling The Mirror.

    However, it seems that Brown is as certain now as ever that the band won't reform. Last summer Brown told journalists that there was 'no chance ... not in the next three lifetimes' of his former band reuniting, leaving many sceptical of the alleged reunion.

    The Stone Roses first album, which was released in 1989, has been voted one of the best of all time.

    However the group split just seven years later after Squire, who designed the album's iconic cover, quit amid rows with Brown.

    The pair are rumoured never to have spoken since.

    Reni left the year before and Mani now plays bass for Primal Scream.

    The Stone Roses were at the centre of the ‘Madchester’ phenomenon in the late 1980s and early 1990s when Manchester was the focus for a lot of the new musical talent hitting the UK indie music scene





    Well that was fun.

    All of this would be okay if Ian Brown made good solo albums. But he doesn't.

    he's one of those rare artists where i suggest new listeners pick up his greatest hits before the albums proper. this is my favorite record of his though:

    This is basically what I posted on one of the other threads. I actually burst into tears for about 30 seconds before realizing it was only reported in tabloids. But here's to hoping, some day.

    Ya know, while we on this subject, one Brit band that should reunite would be the band in bballarl's avatar- SPACEMEN 3! I was lucky enough to see them at London University back in 1987 and they were great! I'll admit it might not have the 'glamour' appeal of someone like the Roses, but it sure would be great to hear Sonic Boom and J Spaceman rock out Rollercoaster one more time.

    It'll never happen though. There's some BAD blood between them, and Spiritualized does better than Spacemen 3 ever did. Still, if you go and see both Spiritualized and Spectrum, you'll get a good smattering of Spacemen tracks. On his last tour, Sonic Boom was playing a set solely comprised of Spacemen tracks. it was amazing.

    Jesus Christ. The Stone Roses' hype is as bad as The Smiths'. I got excited for a minute until I read through the whole damn thread. Fuck this shit.

    The Roses will reform long before the Smiths ever will.
