The Stone Roses set for Sziget Festival 2012

The Stone Roses were one of the pioneers of British guitar pop’s ‘Madchester’ era, ruling the scene of the late 80’s and early 90’s. Their comeback was announced in October 2011 and quickly hit major music media headlines with the plan of their forthcoming world tour. The first triple-gig of the tour is set for Heaton Park in Manchester, with the initial 2 nights selling out in less than 15 minutes. Not a bad sign, considering the capacity of 150.000. Another revealing piece of data: The Stone Roses record sales grew with an unbelievable 1000% after announcing the reunion.

Rumor has it that the band is already thinking about recording a new album, so you better prepare for a total conquest of The Stone Roses, peaking at the 20th Sziget Festival.
