New rumours suggest that The Stone Roses could make an appearance at Leeds Festival 2012.

Chief organiser Melvin Benn admitted, “It wasn’t even something they considered or we considered (in 2011), but of course we’d consider having them back in the future.”

The legendary Mancunian band, fronted by Ian Brown fully reformed this year and have been rumoured for a number of festivals next summer.

    Hi,
    Unless this is a new rumour from elsewhere, I think you've taken this quote the wrong way. On NME on 6th Dec, an article said Melvin Benn had said "It wasn't even something they considered or we considered [this year], but of course we'd consider having them back in the future", and if you read the article, he was referring to 2012, not 2011.
    Really wanted this to happen, but after this quote, I can't see it. They're strongly rumoured for V anyway…

    • I can see what you mean, wasn't sure if this was the case or not, but hey its still a rumour as they will be around for the 2012 festival scene. Apparently they are rumoured to headline V though yeah…

      Thanks for the comment
