Indie legends the Stone Roses are at the centre of speculation they could play a secret warm-up gig in Doncaster.

The seminal Manchester guitar band teased fans ahead of announcing a series of huge gigs next summer by placing posters featuring the band’s lemon logo in shops around their home city.

Now posters featuring the same logo have started appearing in shops across Doncaster this afternoon - leading fans to speculate the group could be warming up for their stadium gigs next summer - with a low key date in Doncaster.

Images of the lemon, which has appeared on the band’s posters and album artwork in the past, have appeared around Doncaster with sightings confirmed at Revolver clothes store, the Notorious Aardvark record store and Doncaster Tourist information centre on the High Street among others.

The posters contain images of 16 lemons and the name of Doncaster live music venue, the Diamond Live Lounge on Wood Street.

Eagle eyed fans have spotted that there are 16 lemons on each poster and are speculating that this means an announcement about 2016 is imminent.

Dominic Gibbs tweeted: “#16Lemons could it be @thestoneroses in Doncaster for a warm up gig?

While Unsigned and Rewined tweeted: #16lemons ? #Doncaster #Doncasterisgreat What’s going on?

However, the posters could be a publicity stunt for the venue which has hosted by concerts by fellow 90s stars Space and Stereo MCs in recent weeks and has regularly hosted tribute bands to fellow Manchester indie favourites The Smiths and many others.
