Matthew Priest (the drummer from Dodgy) has suggested there may be doubts over whether Reni will appear at the Stone Roses reunion shows this summer. Speaking to The Sun’s gossip columnist Gordon Smart on his XFM show over the weekend, Priest is quoted as saying:
I bought tickets because The Roses were one of my favourite bands and Reni was playing. But I’ve heard rumours that Reni might not be playing – he’s not well apparently and they’re rehearsing with another drummer. They’ve sold a lot of the 250,000 tickets because of Reni – I’d want to see them with Reni
However, representatives for the Roses have been quick to deny the rumours, confirming that the band are currently rehearsing with all four original members.
Tickets for the first* Stone Roses show of 2012 at Barcelona Razzmatazz (approx. capacity 4000 I think) on 6th June are still available to buy online. We’ll be writing a follow-up post later this week researching cost of flights and accomodation available for those of you still considering a last-minute trip to Spain.
*unless they add more warm-up dates ;)
