Happy Mondays to play Inverness in December.

Legendary for their on and off stage antics, the rock and acid house-fused group the Happy Mondays will head to Inverness as a part of their ‘Thirtieth Anniversary Twenty-Four Hour Party People Greatest Hits Tour’ this December.

Fronted by Shaun Ryder and dancer Bez, the band were at the forefront of the Madchester Scene and spawned in the equally legendary Hacienda Club in Manchester. Reaching a creative peak in 1990 with ‘Pills ‘n’ Thrills ‘n’ Bellyaches’ the band confounded and delighted critics in equal measure with their fusion of house, rock, funk and soul.

In true ‘Mondays fashion, there’s very little comment from the band themselves (the website is suspended) and their Facebook page is mostly just a series of announcements of the upcoming gigs. That said a gig by the Happy Mondays on the last weekend before Christmas is bound to be utter, utter carnage.

I've always loved music and spent my late teens and early twenties playing guitar in various bands on Lewis and Aberdeen. Other than playing in some truly terrifying pubs in Aberdeen not much came of it and life became focused on family and having a 'proper' job. Inverness Gigs is an outlet for me to quell my inner frustrated musician and the caliber of local acts has even inspired me to take my own music more seriously again. Who knows, one day I might venture back on stage under the fierce scrutiny of an Inverness Gigs reviewer!You can contact Toby direct at Toby@Igi.gs
