The Stone Roses are planning to reform this year for a summer tour, it has emerged.

The band had originally wanted to announce the dates in mid-May to coincide with the anniversary of the release of The Stone Roses, but the news leaked early at the weekend, The Daily Record reports.

It is believed that drummer Alan "Reni" Wren, bassist Gary "Mani" Mounfield and guitarist John Squire had been in favour of the the reunion for some time, with only the reservations of singer Ian Brown blocking a comeback.

The band have reportedly booked 21 UK dates and are also considering a US performance.

An insider said: "It's taken a lot of time and effort to get Ian to agree, but he's really up for it. He was the sticking point throughout the proceedings, but he's finally relented and signed on the dotted line.

"There's been a lot of speculation in the past, but this is the real deal. The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table."

He added: "Ian has forged a really successful solo career and wasn't very receptive to their plans. It's taken a while, but he's finally come around to the notion."

Reni originally left The Stone Roses in 1995 and was replaced by Robbie Maddix. Squire left a year later and was replaced by Aziz Ibrahim.

The Stone Roses' John Squire has denied claims that the band are planning to reform.

The guitarist was responding to reports yesterday (March 17) that the Manchester band were set to play a series of summer shows, and possibly next month's Coachella Festival.

Speaking to NME.COM, a spokesperson for Squire said he was not involved in reunion of The Stone Roses, describing the reports as "unfounded from John Squire's perspective".

They added they that they could not comment on behalf of the rest of the band, but stated: "John is not initiating a reunion or tour."

As previously reported, the timing of the claimed reunion seemed unlikely as Squire is staging a major art exhibition this summer.

The show, Squire's biggest to date, kicks off in July 5 at the Gallery Oldham, and in January the guitarist told NME.COM he would be concentrating on his art career this year.

"I've got a big show in Oldham and one in Austria and one at the end of the year in Tokyo," he said. "The Oldham show is in a major public gallery so it's a lot of work. It's the biggest show I've done."

Squire added that he didn't play guitar much these days as he was concentrating on art more.

Ian Brown's publicist has denied reports that The Stone Roses are to reunite.

Tabloid reports today (March 17) suggested that the band are on the verge of reuniting for 21 gigs this summer.

However, Brown's publicist denied that the frontman had agreed to a reunion, telling the Daily Mail that he is instead concentrating on his next solo album at the moment.

"We know nothing about a reunion," the publicist said. "Ian is working on his new studio album which is due out later this year."

We weigh up the evidence of a potential reunion in our Gallery Special.

We also weight up the arguments for and against a reunion - and you can have your say too.

Everyone else is jumping on the bandwagon and making a few pounds so why not them.Don't think younger audiences will get their music so their appeal will be limited to those fans who were into them first time round.

That's still a fair share of people.

If they did a comeback tour it would be massive but releasing new material might be a bad idea

Anil on ehad.

Although Ian Brown's material was successful, I feel it too was bought by those that were fans of the Roses. Although from what I know of both artists (claiming the Roses as one artist for argument sake) is that there were pretty big differences in style.

THE STONE ROSES are getting back together after IAN BROWN and JOHN SQUIRE buried the hatchet on one of the most bitter feuds in rock 'n' roll history.

The former best pals hadn't spoken for the best part of 15 years after falling out in a war of words when the band imploded back in 1996.

But the boys were brought back together in tricky circumstances last month at bandmate MANI's mum's funeral.

Frontman Ian broke the ice over a cuppa at the wake - and before long they were hugging, back-slapping and reminiscing about the good times.

The megabucks reunion is now being lined up to happen later in the year.

And I haven't been this excited since I got my first BMX in 1986.

A source said: "Ian has been mulling over reaching out to John for a while now. A lot of water has gone under the bridge and everyone has grown up. Ian has just gone through a tough time with a divorce and then Mani's mum's funeral brought everyone back under the same roof.

"It was an emotional reunion. There were no harsh words. It was a heartwarming breaking of bread.

"They had a lot to catch up on and have been in regular contact since."

There must be something in the water up in Manchester. This summer will see TAKE THAT back on the road together after GARY BARLOW and ROBBIE WILLIAMS settled old scores.

Their fall-out was a lovers' tiff compared with the acrimony between the swaggering Stone Roses frontman and one of the best rock'n'roll guitarists this country has produced.

John walked out on the band in 1996 with insults flying back and forth. The band had gone through a turbulent few years with all sorts of bad luck, bad management and bad behaviour.

A legal row with their label Silvertone rumbled on for five years - robbing fans of the band at their prime. The band hardly earned a penny at the time - one of the biggest music travesties of all time. Their first album remains one of the best debuts ever.

The only stumbling block they now face is pinning down former drummer RENI, which is about as easy as trapping mercury, according to my Manc pals.

Mani, one of the best blokes in music, deserves the big swansong. He's had the rock'n'roll lifestyle playing bass with PRIMAL SCREAM but now he'll be back with his proper pals.

A Roses reunion will be something very special indeed. Getting tickets for the gig will be another problem altogether.

We've heard this before, the only paper running this story is The Sun. So I'm not convinced :coffee:

New rumours about The Stone Roses possibly reforming in 2011 have been quashed by bassist Mani.

This morning (April 7) a UK tabloid newspaper claimed that the band, who split in 1996, were set to get back together for gigs this year.

The report was based on singer Ian Brown and John Squire recently meeting again for what is believed to be the first time since the split. Now Mani has told NME that reports of a band reunion are false.

"I'm disgusted that my personal grief has been invaded and hijacked by these nonsensical stories," he said, referring to the fact that Brown and Squire met up at his mother's funeral.

He added: "Two old friends meeting up after 15 years to pay their respects to my mother does not constitute the reformation of The Stone Roses. Please fuck off and leave it alone. It isn't true and isn't happening."

The band released two albums in their career. Brown has pursued a solo career since, while Squire moved into painting after forming The Seahorses and releasing solo material. Mani currently plays in Primal Scream

Former guitarist with The Stone Roses John Squire has dismissed the possibility of The Stone Roses reuniting and has said that he believes the idea of bands reforming for a cash windfall is "tragic."

Speaking to Shortlist, Squire said he believed the only reason rumours that The Stone Roses were set to reunite continued to circulate is because their fanbase can afford to pay for expensive gig tickets.

He said of band's reuniting after many years apart: "When it's just a get-together for a big payday and everyone gets their old clothes out, that seems tragic to me."

Squire added about the possibility of The Stone Roses reuniting: "I don't see these rumours as special or flattering. It's a symptom of the times. People who can afford to waste money on gigs now are of a certain age and The Stone Roses fit their brief."

He also said that despite reports of big money being offered for a reformation, negotiations had never got as far as a fee being talked about. He said of any potential fee: "It's never got that far. I hear rumours, but no-one ever phones me and says 'Will you do it for this amount?"

Open auditions are being held for the new Stone Roses film Spike Island.

The movie, which uses the band's 1990 Spike Island show as its backdrop, is holding auditions in Manchester this weekend for "local lads" between the ages of 16 and 21.

A press release states that no acting experience is necessary at the "informal, friendly and fun" auditions, which take place at the city's Aurora Hotel between 10am and 4pm.

Spike Island, which revolves around an unsigned band of five teenage boys from a council estate in Manchester, was written by 24 Hour Party People actor Chris Coghill.

It was recently reported that it will be directed by Misfitswriter Tom Green. He said: "This is a raw and truly authentic rites-of-passage story.

"It's full of the humour, heartache, dreams and fears of being part of a brotherhood of mates, and set to the greatest record ever written."

FANS of the Madchester music scene will be slipping back into their baggy jeans to celebrate some epic news.

The Stone Roses will announce next week that the big comeback is definitely ON after 15 years under a dark cloud.

Better still, the full original line-up have signed up — Ian Brown, John Squire, Gary 'Mani' Mountfield and Alan 'Reni' Wren. Considering all the bad blood between Squire and Brown, it is a massive moment in British music history.

Fair play to them for sorting it out. And unless you are a member of Steps, this is the biggest reunion story of 2011.

A source said: "It has been a tense few months putting the reunion together. A lot of issues had to be resolved and some seriously hard graft has gone on.

"It was political, it was emotional and it was difficult. But time is a great healer and everyone has grown up."
