After signing to Tony Wilson’s Factory Records, the late ‘80s saw the Happy Mondays become the pioneers of the Madchester sound, as they blended their love of funk, rock, psychedelia and house with the sounds of the UK’s emerging rave scene.

The band’s third album, 1990’s platinum-selling ‘Pills ‘n’ Thrills And Bellyaches’, led to the Happy Mondays crossing over into the mainstream to become icons of Britain’s biggest cultural phenomenon for a generation.

Frontman Shaun Ryder said, “Be great to be back out on the road with Happy Mondays for some pre-Christmas partying! Looking forward to playing all the hits and more at these shows.”

Bez said, “Really excited and looking forward to the Happy Mondays tour - can’t wait to do some freaky dancing.”
