The Stone Roses confirm all planned shows to go ahead after Ian Brown calls Reni a ‘c**t’ onstage
The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown called the band’s drummer Reni a ‘c**t’ onstage in Amsterdam at tonight’s (June 12) gig at the Heineken Music Hall.
After another comeback performance, Brown returned to the stage on his own after the band had played their main set to tell the audience “the drummer’s gone home”. It was anticipated that the band would play an encore of ‘I Am The Resurrection’ – which they had played at both their shows in Barcelona last week.
NME’s source at the show said that it appeared that Brown was being tongue-in-cheek when he repeated: “I’m not joking, the drummer’s gone home. Get all your aggro out on me, I can take it.” He added: “What can I say, the drummer’s a c**t.”
An insider at the show suggested that there was a problem with the drumkit, although this has not been confirmed. A spokesperson for the band refused to comment on speculation around the performance, but added that all planned future performances will go ahead.
