The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses consists of four band members, vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist "Mani" and drummer "Reni". The Stone Roses formed their band in 1983 and we're apart of the whole 1980's and 1990's "Madchester" movement. This English rock band from Manchester had coined the band in 1983 and went on until 1996 in which the band remained with only Ian Brown and Mani after Reni and Squire left prior 1996.
After a long 15 years, The Stone Roses announced that they reunited and will be performing a world reunion tour.
On the 2nd November 2015, The Stone Roses hit the UK with a surprise announcment to play three major shows in the summer of 2016, playing at the Etihad Stadium in their home city of Manchester on 17th and 18th June and at the T In The Park festival on 8th July. Prior to this announcement, there had been speculation that an announcement was upcoming from the band posters of the iconic lemon logo appearing around Manchester earlier on that Monday.
