The Stone Roses Australian Tour 2012

Written by John Ritchie on October 31, 2011

Industry sources have confirmed with Music Feeds that The Stone Roses are planing an Australian tour in 2012 as part of their reunion world tour. The band’s management have been making enquiries to Australian promoters in preparation for an impending tour.

An official announcement is still a few months away, but a headline tour and some festival appearances are expected to be announced for the 2012 Australian summer.

This will be the first time the band have toured Australia since their hey day in 1995, 16 years ago. The support band on their last tour was a young Powderfinger, who announced their breakup in 2009.

The Stone Roses reunion comes after a 15-year fallout between frontman Ian Brown and guitarist John Squire caused the band to split in their prime. The reunion talks came about after Brown and Squire put aside differences at the funeral of bassist Mani’s mother.
