Stone Roses practice band photos for a hectic summer on the road

The Stone Roses have announced a clutch of smaller shows before their mammoth worldwide summer festival jaunt that will establish them as one of the biggest bands in the world.
There has been much speculation on where the first show will be and at the moment it looks like it will be in  at the 4,000-capacity Razzmatazz club in Barcelona on June 8 and 9, followed by a show in Amsterdam’s on June 12.

Whether these will be the first shows is still open to speculation but with only 8 weeks to go time is looking too tight add anything else in, unless it’s been booked and not announced yet.

Rehearsals are going well and , yes, the band are really rehearsing that much and are sounding great with Ian’s vocals sounding really good and hitting the higher notes of the early Roses.

  1. Why on earth nobody writes the exact dates of the show on festivals? I mean, I am truely and sincerely glad they will be touring Europe, but I am the looser who can’t afford being on any festival from start to the end, so it would be nice of them to announce the exact dates.. Ah, nevermind me, just snivelling..

  2. C’mon LTW, we’ve had this conversation before. Tinthepark is nowhere near Glasgow. It’s like saying Heaton Park’s in Newcastle.

    • Not just mancs pal! plenty of X-Pats ‘chompin at the bi’t to hear when/where/if they announce any Aussie shows. The Specials showed us last Saturday that they’ve still got it so here’s hoping The Roses can do the same
