The legendary ‘Madchester’ band the Happy Mondays return to London for a special performance at The Forum in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their classic LP “Bummer”. This show will be followed by a Haçiend After-Party with special guests tba!
In 2012 The Happy Mondays announced a return to the live stage, reuniting the full original line up for the first time in over 19 years. Following two sold out nights at the Brixton Academy, they followed these shows up with a visit to the Roundhouse courtesy of CME welcoming the acid house pioneers 808 State along for the ride.
In 1985 the Happy Mondays fused a sound that owed as much to northern soul and funk as it did rock and psychedelia; it was however the influence of the house music records beaming in from Chicago that had the most profound effect on the band, culminating on the release of their classic album “Bummer” which put them firmly on the map. In 1990 they released the 'Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches' album which collided with the acid house and rave movement that had swept the UK, firmly establishing The Happy Mondays as one of the most inspiring bands to come out of England in the early 1990s. The rest as they say, is history.
With the classic cuts ‘Step On’, ‘Kinky Afro’, ‘Hallelujah’ and of course the track mirrored by a film of the same name ‘24 Hour Party People’ cementing the bands reputation as one of the most advantageous and colorful of the last 20 years, June 29th will no doubt be one show not to be missed!
