The Stone Roses have today confirmed the support acts for their much anticipated homecoming reunion shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park, with Beady Eye and Primal Scream the most notable names on the list.
Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer and Andy Bell played their own three headline shows at Heaton Park back in the summer of 2009 with their former band Oasis, but will now return on the undercard to the Roses with their new venture Beady Eye on Saturday, 30th June, along with The Wailers, Professor Green and Hollie Cook.
Primal Scream will play immediately before The Stone Roses on the first night, June 29th, when The Vaccines are also due to perform. Providing chief support on the final night, July 1st, will be Plan B.
When the Heaton Park gigs went on-sale last year, demand made the shows become the fastest selling in British history according to reports.
