The Stone Roses will headline next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival, performing on the opening night of the music event.
It will be the Manchester Rockers only festival appearance of 2013.
The festival’s promoter, John GIddings said, “When you talk about the soundtrack of our lives, The Stone Roses are embedded in it. I am so proud to get them to our island, they will kick the weekend off with a bang.”
The Stone Roses, who consist of frontman Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani (Gary Mounfield), and drummer Reni (Alan Wren) released their self-titled debut album ‘Stone Roses’ in 1989. However despite sell-out concerts they disbanded in 1996.
Following a 15 year split the band reformed in 2011. They promptly broke records for the fastest selling UK gigs in history for their 2012 summer shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park.
No further acts have been confirmed for 2013 Isle of Wight Festival. However Bon Jovi and Muse have been rumored to feature at the festival, which takes place on June 14 – 16, 2013 at Seaclose park, Newport.
Tickets go on sale Wednesday November 28 at 9am at www.isleofwightfestival.com.
