It takes place in Manchester...
The Stone Roses

The Stone Roses are set to take part in the premiere for new documentary 'Made Of Stone' - a film charting their re-union.

The Stone Roses' reformation was undoubtedly last year's biggest live music story. Taking to the stage at Heaton Park, Manchester the band ended almost two decades of silence and speculation.

Opening a world tour, the group were joined by film maker Shane Meadows. Allowed unrestricted access to The Stone Roses as they played celebratory show after celebratory show, the results will be gathered on new documentary 'Made Of Stone'.

Details of the premiere have been unveiled, with the band themselves to be in attendance. Taking place at an as yet un-named venue, 'Made Of Stone' will be unveiled on May 30th.

Opening nationwide on June 5th, Shane Meadows and producer Mark Herbert will also be in attendance. Shane Meadows said: “Making this film, I got to be part of something truly remarkable, the double decade awaited ‘resurrection’ of my all time favourite band, The Stone Roses. People say that you can’t recapture your youth, it’ll never be the same second time round etc, but that’s utter rubbish. The Roses were never allowed to reach their peak first time around so as far as I and millions of fans around the world were concerned, with this comeback the Roses could be even greater".

“This film isn’t a history lesson, nor is it a two hour concert film. It is a film about defying the odds, sticking it to the man and telling the cynics to shut their pie-holes! The Stone Roses are back baby!”

'Made Of Stone' will open nationwide on June 5th.
