After signing to Tony Wilson’s Factory Records, the late 1980s saw the Happy Mondays become the pioneers of the Madchester sound as they blended their love of funk, rock, psychedelia and house with the sounds of the UK’s emerging rave scene.
The band’s third album, 1990’s platinum-selling Pills ‘n’ Thrills And Bellyaches, led to the Happy Mondays crossing over into the mainstream to become icons of Britain’s biggest cultural phenomenon for a generation.
In 2016, the Happy Mondays won the Ivor Novello’s Inspiration Award, further cementing their reputation as one of Britain’s most influential and loved bands.
The tour begins on October 23 in Inverness and ends on December 21 in Lincoln, stopping off along the way London’s Roundhouse on October 31.
