The Stone Roses announce three UK tour dates - fans go crazy
Who’s up for this then?
Fresh off the back of releasing their first single in 22 years back in June, legendary Manchester band The Stone Roses are taking their new tunes on tour.
The band have already played a number of sold out shows in their hometown during the summer, and fans began speculating when the trademark lemon artwork appeared on Wembley Stadium earlier today.

Ian Brown and company will first be in Belfast on Tuesday, June 13 2017, one of three gigs announced on Monday, along with dates at Wembley and Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday, June 17 and Saturday, June 24 respectively.
Tickets for the gigs go on sale this Friday, September 30, at 9am.
The Roses also played two intimate shows in Halifax and Carlisle, but they sold out in no time, leaving many fans empty-handed and a bit sad. Expect demand to be just as feverish when tickets for next year's dates drop at the end of the week, but this time you'll have a lot better chance of nabbing a few.
Few bands can consistently inspire this much generation-spanning excitement. Here's how the internet reacted to the announcement.
