Happy Mondays Reform

Hallelujah! The Mondays will be playing some gigs this year.


Words by: Charlie Jones

The Happy Mondays are getting back together and will be playing live shows and festivals this summer. Lead singer Shaun Ryder is mainly responsible for reforming the band, and the process will be filmed for a documentary, much like the Stones Roses reunion of last year.

The Sun reports:

A source said: “After the success of The Stone Roses reunion, there’s a real clamour to get the group back on the road and document it properly.

“Shaun and his brother Paul have a notoriously patchy relationship but they’re willing to sort things out for the sake of the band.

“The Mondays have had offers from film companies, including Film4 and Sky, who want to follow them for the reunion. There will be gigs next summer and a re-release of their classic album Pills ‘n’ Thrills And Bellyaches. A DVD will also be released of the comeback shows and the documentary.”
