Stone Roses - Stone Roses Play Through The Rain At Isle Of Wight Festival

Reunited rockers the Stone Roses braved the wind and rain to headline Britain's Isle of Wight Festival on Friday night (14Jun13).

The band top-lined the famous music event following performances from stars including Paul Weller, Ellie Goulding and Emeli Sande, who all made the most of the short-lived sunshine during the day.

The Stone Roses, who returned to the spotlight last year (12), opened their set with popular hit I Wanna Be Adored and made it through a number of songs before the bad weather hit.

The rockers braved the elements and closed the show with a rain-soaked finale of I Am the Resurrection.

The festival was marred by bad weather last year (12) and the heavy rain threatens a repeat of the muddy conditions endured by fans at the 2012 event.

Other acts due to perform over the weekend (15-16Jun13) include Blondie, The Script, The Killers and Bon Jovi, and revellers will also be treated to a set from another group of reunited rockers - Bob Geldof's The Boomtown Rats.
