Happy Mondays reform for UK tour
Date Posted: 30/01/12
The Happy Mondays have announced that they are reforming for a UK tour later this year.
Bez, Gary Whelan, Paul Ryder, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder – who were all part of the original line-up – are back together for the first time in nearly two decades.
Fans booking Newcastle hotels will be able to see their first appearance, when the band plays at the city's O2 Academy on Thursday May 3rd.
Supported by the Inspiral Carpets, the Happy Mondays then move on to Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and Bournemouth, with gigs following in London, Birmingham, Leeds and Nottingham.
"We all met up last week and some of the lads haven't seen each other in over ten, 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," said Shaun Ryder.
This year threatens to be a summer of comebacks, with the Stone Roses playing three dates at Manchester's Heaton Park on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th of June and Sunday 1stJuly.
