T In The Park organiser Geoff Ellis has said he is looking for a ‘Stone Roses mark two’ for the 2013 event; a band loved by music lovers both young and old.
With The Stone Roses set to headline the Scottish festival this weekend as part of their 2012 reunion tour, Ellis has said he is already on the look out for a similar band to head up the event in 2013, when T In The Park will celebrate its 20th anniversary.
“You’re always thinking ahead, seeing who is around,” he told NME. “You don’t want to be too one dimensional with the bill. I’m talking to people already. I’ve not made any offers yet, but we’ll start picking that up in the next few weeks. There’s a few people who’ve said to me that they want to play in 2013, but you don’t want to lock up the bill too early.”
“It’s our 20th year next year and I think the expectations of the fans are quite high that we’re going to do something with the line-up. You can’t get a band like the Stone Roses to reform every year, a band that’s liked by 18 – 25 year olds now, as well as people who were into them in the 1990s. We’d love to get the Stone Roses mark two next year, whoever they are.”Just Published:
