Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder said, “I am really looking forward to the ‘Mondays’ shows leading up to Christmas 2017.

“We’re performing better than ever and I love getting together with the band, blasting out all our great tunes we’ve made together over the decades. It’s gonna be great.”

Tickets are on sale from 9am on Friday, March 17 and will be available from here.

The debut album from Happy Mondays was initially released with a track known as Desmond included rather than 24 Hour Party People.

The track borrowed heavily from The Beatles song Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da with Michael Jackson owning the right to their back catalogue.

He forced the removal of the track from the future pressings of the album.
