nice write up by John Robb, although it was ’95 last time.
Creativeman Production, one of Japan’s biggest and most esteemed promoters, announced on 1 December 2015 that The Stone Roses will play Japan Budokan in Tokyo on 2 June 2016.
Creativeman’s dedicated The Stone Roses page details the sell-out dates at Etihad and the additional dates added, speculates about new material and promises ticket information at a later date.
Japan’s Budokan indoor arena is located in the Chiyoda Ward of central Tokyo and has a 20,000 capacity and has played host for many Live at The Budokan albums from Blur, Bob Dylan and Kiss.
2016 wont be the first time The Stone Roses have played the Budokan – the band appeared at the venue on 13 September 1998 during their Second Coming tour.
