Happy Mondays
The Definitive Original Line Up
UK Tour 2012
Plus Special Guests Inspiral Carpets
Third London Date Added

Bez, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Paul Ryder, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder – the original line up of Happy Mondays are back together for the first time in over 19 years and will embark on an massive UK tour in May including a massive show at Manchester Arena. Due to popular demand with numerous shows selling out over the weekend a third show has been added at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.

Shaun Ryder says; ‘We all met up last week and some of the lads haven’t seen each other in over 10, 15 years. It’s as if we’ve never been apart – so good to all be in the same room again. We can’t wait now to get on tour and play the songs that made us famous.'

Happy Mondays were first discovered by the legend Tony Wilson in the Hacienda and have become synonymous with the Manchester music scene.

Since their first album Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out) which debuted in 1987 Happy Mondays followed up with two classic albums; Bummed in 1988, then Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches which went on to achieve platinum status in the UK alone.

Expect to hear songs Step On, Kinky Afro, Hallelujah, 24 Hour Party People and many, many more.

Happy Mondays will be joined by special guests – the newly reformed Inspiral Carpets.
