Bummed 25th Anniversary Tour: Happy Mondays

The legendary 'Madchester' band the Happy Mondays hit the road for a special UK tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic LP 'Bummed'.

Due to huge demand a second Manchester show has been added at The Ritz on 15th November!

Marrying dense funkadelic grooves with biting post-punk guitars and disorientating, eddying keyboards it makes for a vivid, unsettling, and elaborate whole. We hear slide guitar mixing with looped drum-machines, alongside sound clips from the film ‘Performance’ and half-inched Beatles melodies; all unified by Shaun Ryder's singular incantations of luck, lazyitis and fat lady wrestlers.

The importance of this record can't be overstated; Bummed propelled the Happy Mondays into the wider public eye, found them dominating Top Of The Pops and playing stadiums. Bummed is the crucial connector between indie and acid house of course, between rock and rave – just listen to the Vince Clarke remix of ‘Wrote For Luck’ (WFL) –

this is something daring and unheard of which changed the clubbing landscape of the country forever.

So exactly 25 years later we have a chance to hear this seminal and astonishing album played out in full; from the two stepping ‘Country Song to a meeting with ‘Mad Cyril’ and a heady dose of ‘Lazyitis’ along the way.

These performances are guaranteed to be unprecedented and phenomenal.
