After 15 years Mani is set to return to The Stone Roses as the classic line-up of the band reunite for a new album and world tour next year.

From their press conference this afternoon in Manchester, Granada Reports has tweeted that Mani has stated “it’s heart breaking to leave Primal Scream, but they’ve allowed me to follow my dream. I’m so grateful.”

The band have so far announced two dates in Manchester at Heaton Park on June 29th and 30th next year.
