Happy Mondays Reunion Tour 2012

BEZ, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Paul Ryder, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder – the original line up of Happy Mondays are reuniting for the first time in over 19 years.

"It’s as if we’ve never been apart – so good to all be in the same room again."

The orginal Happy Mondays will embark on an 11 date UK tour in May including a massive show at Manchester Arena.

Shaun Ryder said: “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.”

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 they 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 more on their comeback tour this year.

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