English legends HAPPY MONDAYS are returning to Australia and New Zealand this October as part of their Twenty Four Hour Party People – Greatest Hits Tour.


Formed in Salford England, Happy Mondays were one of the most influential groups of the 80s and 90s.  Let by frontman Shaun Ryder, the group fused UK’s indie and emerging Acid house scene to help mint the genre-defying sound that would be become ‘Madchester’ creating a unique sound that has stood the test of time.


Their music, style and attitude embodied the era, making them one of the most beloved and influential British bands of all time.


Fans can expect to hear all their favourite hits, including ‘Step On’, ‘Kinky Afro’, ‘Loose Fit’ and the classics from their stellar discography.


Frontman Shaun Ryder said, “We’re thrilled to be heading back to Australia and New Zealand. The fans there have always shown us so much love, and we can’t wait to give them a show they’ll never forget.”


Don’t miss your chance to experience the party of a lifetime with the HAPPY MONDAYS as they return for their first tour in over four years this October.
