It's gotta happen, right? It better fookin' happen!!
"Well, that's just like, you know... your opinion, man"
Does this mean they can now be ruled out for Chella, 'Roo, P-4k and Lolla in 2012?
but it looks like they're confirmed for V Festival in August as well.
FOR any fans of The Stone Roses still miserable about missing out on Heaton Park tickets – get your mobile phones and credit cards ready.
Ian Brown, John Squire, Gary "Mani" Mounfield and Alan "Reni" Wren will be headlining V Festival next August.
That's great news for all those punters planning their annual pilgrimage to Weston Park, Staffs, and Hylands Park, Essex.
It's not great news for the Big Brother and Only Way Is Essex gimps who go every year. To them The Stone Roses are ornaments you buy at the garden centre.
A source said: "The Roses' upcoming tour has been put together by SJM, the same tour promoters who have looked after Take That, Oasis, and Coldplay for their massive shows. Every year V Festival pulls in some huge acts.
"Eminem and Rihanna, who played this year, will be tough acts to follow, but the Roses are a massive draw."
The band were rumoured to be headlining the re-establised Phoenix Festival next summer but that is now ruled out.
The money involved should be enough to keep Ian Brown and his family in Adidas clobber for about another three generations.
The headliners at V normally pocket a tidy £1million pay cheque.
If these guys play any US festival it will be Coachella. Maybe Lolla, but Coachella will most likely be the one. Not Roo, Pitchfork, or anything else. Will they do it next year? Probably not. But it'd be cool.
Does ATP here in the states usually get big (or any) Britpop acts?
So ACL is definitely ruled out then huh?
Looks like the Heaton Park shows are not first anymore.....
Exact date not confirmed yet.
Hultsfred Festival - Hultsfred, Sweden - June 14 - 16
NorthSide Festival - Arhus,Denmark - June 15 – 17
Ouch, burn. Coachella it is then!
The Knife: 4/9 @ Fox Theater
Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields
Though i we can only get one reunited british act my preference is still for Pulp
well, fuck right off out of this thread then. Arse.
Now that would be amazing!

Photo: PA PhotosThe Stone Roses' Ian Brown and John Squire reunited onstage for the first time in 16 years last night (December 2) - scroll down and click below to watch footage.
The Madchester legends' singer and guitarist appeared as part of Mick Jones' Hillsbrough Justice Campaign gig at Manchester's Ritz venue, playing on versions of The Clash's 'Bankrobber' and 'Armagideon Time' and The Stone Roses' 'Elizabeth My Dear'.
Squire and Brown hadn't played onstage together since The Stone Roses' December 1995 UK tour, which came five months before Squire left the band.
The Hillsborough Justice Tour aims to promote the campaign set up by the friends and family of the 96 people who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. Last night's gig also featured musical contributions from Jones, singer-songwriter Pete Wylie and Liverpool band The Farm.
Squire and Brown are due to play full band reunion gigs with The Stone Roses next summer, kicking off with an appearances at Sweden's Hultsfred and Denmark's NorthSide festivals, which take place on June 14-16 and June 15-17 respectively.
They will then play three huge homecoming gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park on June 29, 30 and July 1, which sold out just over an hour after going on sale.
The band are also due to play T In The Park, Benicassim and Japan's Fuji Rock Festival, with appearances at V Festival in August also strongly rumoured.
All I could think about when I read this is that scene in Shaun of the Dead when they chuck Second Coming at the zombies.To qualify for a free ticket to this very special warm up show fans will need to take a Stone Roses CD inlay cover, record sleeve, official band t-shirt or Heaton Park ticket with them to the Pyramid box office in order to get a wrist band.
