Gig Information

Ink bar will be hosting the official afterparty for the Happy Mondays on February 28th .Band members Bez and Rowetta will be hosting their seminal party On the 6th Day God created Manchester with a special guest DJ to be announced on the day .Heres a little about The Happy Mondays .For the first time in New Zealand the band will be playing their seminal album ‘Pills ’n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ in full!

HAPPY MONDAYS formed in 1980 in Salford, Greater Manchester: the original line-up included Shaun Ryder on lead vocals, with brother Paul Ryder on bass, lead guitarist Mark Day who are all still with the current line up! The group's work bridged the Manchester independent rock music of the 1980s and the emerging UK rave scene.

1987 saw their first album ‘Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile’ and this was followed by the classic album ‘Bummed’ in 1988.

But it was 1990’s ‘Pills ’n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ an majorly influential album, produced by Paul Oakenfold and Steve Osborne which saw the band break big time and go platinum in the UK selling more than 350,000 copies. This put the band firmly on the map as one of the most influential bands to come out of the UK in the early 1990s. Singles Step On and Kinky Afro from this album both reached number 5 in the UK singles chart. ‘Yes Please!’ followed in 1992,

By the late 1980s the HAPPY MONDAYS were an important part of the U.K. music scene. Numerous world tours meant the band had international success to go along with the massive success in their home country.

It wasn’t until 2007 that they released their first album in fourteen years ‘Uncle Dysfunktional’. The band played Coachella Music Festival in California and toured throughout the summer of 2007. The band continued to make festical appearances, and after a successful UK tour in November/December 2017 HAPPY MONDAYS are were back playing festivals throughout 2018. Joining the Ryders Brothers and Mark Day are Bez (Percussion & dancer), Gaz Whelan (drums), Rowetta (vocals) and Dan Broad (keyboardist and musical director). Now it is Australia and New Zealand’s turn to see this visionary band and they have a huge surprise in store! They will be playing their seminal album ‘Pills ’n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ in full!
