The Stone Roses announce European headline shows

The Stone Roses will play a number of headline shows in Europe this summer, as well as a host of previously announced festival appearances and their three headline shows in Manchester’s Heaton Park (June 29-July 1).

The band will play two dates at Barcelona’s Razzmatazz club on June 8-9 as well as a show at Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall on June 12. The two dates at Razzmatazz are being put on by the people behind the Benicassim Festival, which happens a month later, from July 12-15. The Stone Roses will play Benicassim as well as V Festival, T In The Park, Optimus Alive, Fuji Rock, Tennent’s Vital, NorthSide and Hultsfred.

The Stone Roses play:
Barcelona Razzmatazz (June 8, 9)
Amsterdam Heineken Music Hall (June 12)

The Stone Roses recently revealed full details of their Heaton Park reunion shows, with Primal Scream, Beady Eye and Plan B heading up the support bills on each of the three nights from June 29 to July 1.

Bob Marley’s backing group The Wailers will play third on the bill on each of the three nights, as part of a bill The Stone Roses have described as a “mix of the legendary and the new”. Primal Scream will be joined by The Vaccines and Kid British on the opening night, while Saturday’s bill sees Professor Green and Hollie Cook slated to perform before Beady Eye.

Plan B will play on the closing night after The Justice Tonight Band – which comprises The Clash’s Mick Jones, Pete Wylie and The Farm – and Dirty North. The latter, a dub-influenced band from Manchester district Wythenshawe, were namechecked as a band to watch by Stone Roses drummer Reni during the band’s reunion press conference in October – scroll down and click below to NME‘s video to watch the action unfold again.
