Reformed Manchester icons The Stone Roses have brought their hugely successful reunion tour to Japanese shores for a headline performance on the opening day (July 27th) of this year’s Fuji Rock festival.
The Roses topped a first day line-up which also included the likes of Owl City and Ed Sheeran, while Beady Eye performed immediately before frontman Liam Gallagher‘s Manchester contemporaries – the second time the two bands have shared a bill recently after Beady Eye acted as chief support for the Stone Roses on their second Heaton Park show earlier this month. Beady Eye performed Oasis classics Rock n Roll Star and Morning Glory which were added to the set for the first time at the band’s only scheduled 2012 headlining show in Warrington earlier this summer.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will headline Fuji Rock’s main Green Stage tomorrow following a scheduled performance from former Kinks legend Ray Davies among others, while Radiohead are due to close the 2012 event’s final day on July 29th.
With the estranged Gallagher brothers booked at the same festival for the first time since Oasis‘ messy split nearly three years ago, Noel was quick to dismiss the chances of an unlikely reunion for the pair, telling The Sun earlier this week ‘both camps would never allow‘ such a hook-up.Just Published:
