At 3 p.m. today British time (BST), the original lineup of The Stone Roses -- singer Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni -- announced that they are a band again.
"This is a live resurrection, and you're invited, so you'd better be there," Brown said.
At the news conference, which took place at London's Soho Hotel, the band also revealed plans for two homecoming shows at Heaton Park in Manchester, England, on June 29 and 30, 2012, followed by an extended world tour.
