Happy Mondays Original Lineup Reunites for UK Tour


Happy Mondays
The full, original lineup of Madchester icons Happy Mondays have announced they will reunite for the first time in over 19 years and set out on an 11 date UK tour in May, including a homecoming show at Manchester Arena.

The reunion came about when original members Bez, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Paul Ryder, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder came together to discuss the idea.

Says Ryder: "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 legendary Tony Wilson in the infamous Hacienda club and have become synonymous with the Manchester music scene.

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