The Stone Roses want to play future gigs in the UK's less glamorous locations.
The band is currently working on a third studio album in London and front man Ian Brown told a fan they would like to play some concerts off the beaten path after their stadium gigs in Manchester this summer.
Speaking outside the recording studios, the 53-year-old singer said: "We'd like to play places you'd least like to live - like Sunderland, Grimsby. But not advertised it as that, know what I mean."
It has been claimed the group's third album will be released this summer to coincide with their upcoming live dates, which include four headline shows at Manchester's Etihad Stadium.
In addition to their Manchester headline shows, The Stone Roses have gigs lined up in Dublin, New York and Japan, as well as a headline slot at T In The Park.
However, they have yet to confirm that they are even working on an album with drummer Reni telling NME: "I can't tell you anything because I'll get my arse kicked".
