CONFIRMED: The Stone Roses Reuniting In 2012 For UK Shows and World Tour

Resurrected. What a heartwarming-ass photo.
Well there we have it. After at least a couple thousand false starts and then a glimmer of hope late last week, seminal British rock icons The Stone Roses are FINALLY reuniting in 2012, 16 years after their dissolution.

As confirmed at a press conference at London's Soho Hotel that literally just ended, the band's full original lineup has stopped beefing and will play two shows at Heaton Park in their home base of Manchester on June 29 and 30. Before you start scrounging up cash for a flight over there, though, those shows are the kickoff performances for that full-on Stone Roses WORLD TOUR we've been dreaming of for way too long now. And the best part? Frontman Ian Brown promised that all of our favorite songs will be complemented by NEW SONGS, with the possibility of a new album in the nearish future.

The dudes have a new website up with links to where you can pick up tickets at 9:30am GMT on Friday for the Manchester shows, and they'll be posting up info about the upcoming world tour as soon as available. It goes without saying that we're completely psyched for this news, and will keep you posted on US dates once we know what they are.

Fuck yeah, you guys.
