Watch Stone Roses Reunite In England

The reunited Stone Roses took the stage last night at Warrington Parr Hall, an unannounced free performance (their first in 16 years) that left notable observers speechless, rattling through an 11-song set of the band’s classics. Fans were given wristbands if they brought a piece of Stone Roses memoribilia — a CD, a ticket, a t-shirt — and the capacity was only 1000, making the atmosphere electric for the Manchester gods. Head below to scope the setlist watch a few videos taken from the crowd, and we’ll update if more get posted.

A soundcheck version of “Sally Cinnamon:”

The set list:
01 “I Wanna Be Adored”
02 “Mersey Paradise”
03 “Sally Cinnamon”
04 “Made Of Stone”
05 “(Song For My) Sugar Spun Sister”
06 “Where Angels Play”
07 “Shoot You Down”
08 “Tightrope”

  1. great setlist but hopefully they’ll work in fools gold and elephant stone sometime

  2. No Resurrection? I thought given the circumstances that would be pretty much a given. Cool that they played Mersey Paradise, though. Their b-side material at that time was still better what anyone else was releasing as singles.

  3. “Standing Here” would’ve been sick, too. But this is great. So, so great.

  4. I know that I’ve got a whole lot of Debbie Downer in me, but I have to say that I’m concerned about how much revisionism is going to surround this reunion. I can’t count the amount of magazines, blogs, websites, etc. that, lately, have been calling the band’s second record “underrated.” I’m not sure that it was. Five years of fermentation didn’t make it any good. I suspect that an additional eighteen haven’t made it any better–unless, of course, new pressings of it are coming drenched in some kind of scotch. Then it might interest me.
