The Stone Roses to play Hampden Park

Manchester indie legends The Stone Roses have announced three UK shows for 2017 – including a gig at Scotland’s Hampden Park on June 24.

This summer saw the legendary band play to over 240,000 people across four sold out nights at Manchester Etihad stadium, as well as a sold out show at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

The group, fronted by Ian Brown, became indie legends in the late 1980s with their self-titled debut album, which included classic tunes like I Wanna Be Adored and I Am the Resurrection.

It was named the Best British Album Of All Time by music bible NME in 2006, and came runner-up in a Channel 4 poll to find the best album of the millennium in 1997.

The Stone Roses split after the follow-up, 1994’s Second Coming. On November 2, 2015, the band announced two gigs in Manchester (a further two shows being added after these sold out), and a headline slot at the T in the Park earlier this year.

In May 2016, the band released All For One, their first new release in more than 20 years. A second single, titled Beautiful Thing, was released in June.
