David Beckham Helped With Stone Roses Reunion
07 Nov 2011
The Stone Roses reunion has been one of music’s biggest stories of last month and will certainly be with us for some time to come. Football legend, David Backham is the latest celebrity to have aligned himself with the comeback of Manchester’s finest.
A long-time Stone Roses fan and friend of Ian Brown and Mani for a number of years, David Beckham has been key in encouraging the indie icons to get back together.
An anonymous source told The Sun newspaper, “David has always been a huge Stone Roses fan. (…) David heard there was a chance the ice was thawing between Ian and guitarist John Squire and he got involved. He told Mani in no uncertain terms he simply had to get the band back together. He said he would be willing to ring all the boys and beg them to crack on. (…) David was one of the first people to know it was going ahead when the boys finally got together for rehearsals again.”
The Stone Roses are set to play three massive UK comeback shows at Manchester’s Heaton Park on the 29th, 30th June and 1at July 2012. A World Tour and Festival dates are strongly rumoured.
