Director Shane Meadows's tell-all documentary about The Stone Roses's comeback will hit cinemas later this year.

The cult rockers returned to the stage last May for their first gig in 16 years, and went on to perform to sold-out crowds across Britain and Europe.

This Is England filmmaker Meadows filmed the group's reunion and was granted exclusive backstage access with the band members, and now all the action in captured in The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone, which will be released in the UK and Ireland on June 5.

The rockers will attend the premiere in Manchester on May 30 and fans will be able to buy tickets for the event, which will be satellite-linked to 100 cinemas across the UK at the same time as the official launch.


Meadows will also take part in a question-and-answer session with fans at the premiere and via Twitter.

"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," the director said.

"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."
