As The Stone Roses prepare for their trio of homecoming gigs at Manchester’s Heaton Park this weekend, digital radio station BBC 6Music is inviting listeners to pick the ‘ultimate Stone Roses playlist’ to mark the occasion.
Through the official blog, a Spotify playlist, Facebook and the Twitter hashtag #Roses6Music, the station is asking listeners to nominate their favourite Roses tracks, as well as classic songs from bands who inspired the Roses, who were inspired by the Roses, or even those who are supporting the Manchester band during the course of their three Heaton Park dates. The playlist will be aired over the weekend as part of the Now Playing @6Music series.
The Stone Roses will play the first night of their Heaton Park run tomorrow (June 29th), when support will be provided by the likes of Primal Scream and The Wailers. After going on sale last year, the gigs were reported to have become the fastest selling in the UK of all time.Just Published:
