Happy Mondays to play a series of December shows

In recent years, we’ve seen some excellent Britpop performances and revivals, so it seemed appropriate when The Stone Roses announced their reformation and we could welcome back another great British musical movement – the Madchester scene. Now, it’s the turn of  the Happy Mondays to bask in the glow of nostalgia and adoration.

This December, the seminal Factory Records band will be playing two shows at Camden Roundhouse, supported by fellow Mancunians 808 State. Happy Mondays will return with the definitive lineup of Bez, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Paul Ryder, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder. If you’ve always wanted to get sweaty to a soundtrack of ‘Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyache’, then you’re in luck and will finally be able to party like it’s 1989. Bonus points to any dedicated ravers who can get their hands on a Thermowear t-shirt or – better still – actually own an original one. Nice one, our kid!

Tickets for The Roundhouse shows on December 19th and December 20th are still available, and extra dates have just been added for Brighton Centre and Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse as well.
