The Stone Roses are to headline at next year's T in the Park festival in Scotland as part of their reunion tour.

Last month the band sold out three nights at Manchester's Heaton Park in just 14 minutes.

They have now announced follow on appearances at T in the Park, Benicassim and the Fuji Rock Festival.

Organisers said they were thrilled the band was coming to Scotland and that a limited release of tickets would go on sale in December.

In October, the classic Stone Roses line-up announced they were reforming 16 years after they last appeared on stage together.

They are best known for hits like I Wanna Be Adored and Fools Gold, and their iconic, self-titled, debut album.

A spokeswoman for T in the Park said: "Having recently announced their 'live resurrection' to the delight of dedicated fans across the globe, The Stone Roses will undoubtedly provide the seminal music moment of the summer with their hugely anticipated headline performance at T in the Park 2012."

A limited release of tickets will go on sale on Friday 2 December. The rest of the tickets will go on general release early next year.

The 19th T in the Park festival in Balado, near Kinross, will be held over the weekend of 6-8 July.
