Video: The Stone Roses, ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ in Spain — 1st pro-shot footage of reunion

The Stone Roses are about two-thirds of the way through their summer tour of Europe and the Far East and, thanks in large part to the band’s avoidance of festival webcasts, so far most fans only have witnessed the reunion through grainy, camera-shot fan footage. Until now: As The Stone Roses Fansite points out, the very first pro-shot footage of the Roses’ reunion finally has emerged (via ) in the form of this 5½-minute clip of the show-opening “I Wanna Be Adored” from the Benicassim Festival in Spain on July 14.

  1. Squire plays it loosey-goosey on this take…good to hear that they’re back down to earth and just fookin’ rock-n-roll

  2. Ian reminds me of Mike “Bez” Berry in this clip. Not sure if that’s a good thing. Regardless, glad they’re back together and not sounding half bad after 17 years on the shelf.

  3. Notch Johnson

    Excuse me? US dates?

  4. Is it just me or does anybody else think that Ian is not so good in a live singing situation. I love the Roses, even 2nd Coming, but every time I see clips of them live I’m left cold and a big part of that is his voice.

  5. meh…
