Happy Mondays @O2 Academy

Arena Mole

Recommended Posts

Happy Mondays will be playing O2 Academy Sunday 6th May after a long awaited return...


This will be the first time the original line up have performed together sine 1992. The band, who were at the forefront of the 'Madchester' scene, formed in 1980 with Ryder as their frontman.


The original band also included Ryder's brother Paul, guitarist Mark Day, Paul Davis and drummer Gary Whelan and were later joined by Mark 'Bez' Berry and Satchell.


Discovered by music impresario Tony Wilson, they went on to release such albums as Bummed and Pills 'N' Thrills And Bellyaches before disbanding after 1992's Yes Please!.


They re-formed twice, most notably in 1999, but split again in 2001 with Paul Ryder vowing never to perform with his brother again.


A further incarnation of the band followed in 2004 with only Shaun Ryder, Bez and Whelan from the original line-up.


Tickets are on sale from Friday 3rd Febuary at 10am.
