The Happy Mondays Looking For Festival Slots In Europe

Written by Kiel Egging on January 18, 2012

The Quietus has confirmed that the original line-up of The Happy Mondays will reunite for a series of live shows in 2012 – and they’re looking for selected dates across Europe to kick things off.

Shaun Ryder, Paul Ryder, Gary Whelan, Bez and Rowetta Satchell, along with former members Mark Day and Paul Davis (not included in the 1999 reformation) are currently taking bookings for gigs and festival appearances.

A call-out to promoters across Europe reads: “The rumours are true… Happy Mondays, the seminal Manchester band who changed musical culture forever has reformed and will be available for select live gigs across 2012.”

Music Feeds wrote a story on the then-potential reunion last month – with sources suggesting the Ryder brothers desire to sort out their “notoriously patchy relationship” as the catalyst for the reunion.
