MANCHESTER t-shirt vendors The Stone Roses are to reform for a new series of concerts they won't turn up to.



Image
This is the one we've waited for them to cancel at the last minute


It has been 15 years since the La’s tribute band last disappointed thousands of fans by cancelling a show at the last moment because they were convinced their arms had turned into a brace of live trout.

Stone Roseologist, Wayne Hayes, said: "People are really looking forward to their lengthy conversations with Ticketmaster about refund policies, which has to be more enjoyable than seeing the band up close these days because they currently resemble an Altrincham Jobstart course for unemployed zombies.

"Not so much 'Made of Stone' as 'Made of Bits of Gristle and Tracksuit'."

Venues are already being scouted for the group to not play the two-dozen songs they managed to grind out during their 28-year career and it is felt that demand could be inexplicably high enough for them to fill the whole of Wembley Stadium, with the obvious exception of the stage.

Hayes said: "While their inevitable failure to turn up might be disappointing it will be a veritable Woodstock compared to paying eighty quid to watch Ian Brown shuffle and mumble his way around the stage, shaking his head like a nursing home resident refusing to take a bath.

"It's just possible that their legacy as a live act has something to do with the fact it coincided with an era when most of the audience contained enough Ketamine to drop a rhino."

The group will promote the not-tour with a four track EP of aimless wah-wah guitar, set for release on holographic 12-inch some time in the early 2040s.

Judging from that photo, he looks like a nursing home resident too. He's got more cheekbone than Skeletor.

"Let me ask you a question. What's it feel like to write for a newspaper that used to support Adolf Hitler?" - Ian Brown turns the tables on a Daily Mailjournalist as The Stone Roses announce their return.

STONE Roses fans were furious last night as touts snapped up £55 tickets for the Manc band's comeback tour — and sold them online for £1,500.

Two gigs sold out in 14 minutes yesterday — before tickets appeared on sites like eBay for 20 times their face value. One tout selling four tickets for £3,999 warned: "Refunds will only be for the face value of the tickets if the gig is cancelled."

Fans blame touts for crashing official websites and robbing them of the chance to see the band in Manchester's Heaton Park next July.

The band added a third gig — which quickly sold out. The 222,000 tickets earned the reformed band an estimated £10MILLION.

Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown, 48, said: "We plan on spending the rest of the day jumping up and down with our hands in the air."

STONE Roses singer Ian Brown escaped a road ban for doing 105mph — after magistrates heard he needs to get to rehearsals for the band's reunion gigs.

Brown, 48, was caught by police hurtling along the M56 as he made his way home and could have got an automatic ban.

But celebrity lawyer Nick Freeman said taking the star's wheels could seriously jeopardise the preparation for next year's concerts — the most eagerly-awaited gigs for years.

He added: "The band are rehearsing three days a week at a remote secret location 40 miles from the defendant's home address.

"As someone who is in the public eye, one can imagine the difficulty he would encounter if he was forced to travel on public transport."

Magistrates were told Brown did 50,000 miles a year driving between his home in Lymm, Cheshire, and London to visit his 11-year-old son.

He also ran errands and did a weekly shop for his parents who live about ten miles from his home.

Reunited ... Stone Roses

Brown, who admitted speeding, was given six penalty points and fined £600. Magistrates in Chester said his previous good driving record had saved him from a ban.


The Stone Roses' three reunion concerts in Manchester were announced last week — and sold out in just 15 minutes.

An expanded list of Stone Roses tour dates has appeared online.

The new dates suggest that the band are planning to embark on a full tour of the UK and Ireland, as well as playing a few dates across Europe, in addition to their three Manchester shows which sold out last week.

The new dates allege that the band will play arenas in the UK cities, while one London date has been listed as a potential iTunes Festival headline slot at Camden's Roundhouse on July 16.

The rumoured dates are as follows:

June 29, 30 and July 1, 2012 - Manchester, Heaton Park (confirmed/sold out)
July 5 - Liverpool Echo Arena
July 7, 8 - London, O2 Arena
July 11, Glasgow, SECC

DAVID BECKHAM has a lot to be proud of – an OBE, winning silverware with some of the biggest clubs in the world and fathering four fine kids.

But his biggest achievement to date has emerged — playing a vital role behind the scenes in getting The Stone Roses back together.

Former Manchester United star Becks hassled bass player Gary "Mani" Mounfield about the idea in LA earlier this year. And then after his best pal Gary Neville's testimonial in May, Becks cornered frontman Ian Brown at Old Trafford on the thorny issue of the big reunion.

A source close to Becks said: "David has always been a huge Stone Roses fan.

"You've got to remember he was a young lad in Manchester when The Roses were a big deal. It was impossible to live there without being into the band.

"Ian and Mani are Reds through and through so they all knew each other a bit back in the day.

"David heard there was a chance the ice was thawing between Ian and guitarist John Squire and he got involved.

"He told Mani in no uncertain terms he simply had to get the band back together.

"He said he would be willing to ring all the boys and beg them to crack on. And when he saw Ian at Old Trafford a month later, he really laid it on thick and said that he would be willing to do anything to make it happen.

"David was one of the first people to know it was going ahead when the boys finally got together for rehearsals again."

No wonder Becks was keen for the Roses reunion to happen.



It gives him an excuse to take control of the iPod again after years of being subjected to The Spice Girls and his kids playing Justin Bieber on repeat. Footballers have suffered a reputation for having dodgy taste in music in the past.

But Becks has aligned himself with some seriously cool characters, including rapper Snoop Dogg, who has become a close friend.

Joey Barton should get on the blower to Becks and see if he can help with getting The Smiths back together. The QPR ace has been wining and dining Johnny Marr and Morrissey in recent months.

If Becks could make that reunion happen too, a Knighthood would be all but confirmed.

FOUR gigs in and The Stone Roses reunion has had its first serious hiccup.

The band played a brilliant set in Amsterdam last night to a sold-out crowd.

Frontman Ian Brown insisted the band go out and play an encore – even though they rarely do one.

Drummer Reni said no and headed back to the hotel, which went down like Elephant Stone.

A source backstage said: “Ian walked back onstage, called Reni a c*** and said he had gone home... The crowd were booing. They were gutted.”

Let’s hope the boys have a cuppa and sort it out.

A FEW British tourists have developed an irregular heartbeat after a trip to Amsterdam over the years.

But Stone Roses fans happily at home watching the MOTD Euros special felt a bit of a tightening in their chest on Tuesday night — when they got wind of the first hiccup between the band members.

But anyone with a ticket, hear this now — Heaton Park, T in the Park, Benicassim, V and every other show will still go ahead as planned. A source at the gig said: “Reni had been having a few issues with sound. Nothing major, just irritations.

“He didn’t want to play an encore, the Roses rarely do.

“Ian was so chuffed with how the show had gone though, he was desperate to go out and give the fans a bit more.

“The gig had been brilliant up until that point.

“The fans were disappointed they didn’t get a 14-minute version of I Am The Resurrection but that’s no hardship after the show they had seen.”
