Happy Mondays tickets due to go on sale

Tickets for the Happy Mondays gig at Mareel at the end of the year, the band’s only Scottish date on their European tour, go on sale at 1pm today.

Klub Revolution and Shetland Arts are presenting the original line-up of the Happy Mondays in the music venue on Saturday 15th December at 7.30pm.

Happy Mondays have been described as one of the most influential bands to emerge from the 1990s Britpop era, whose turbulent history has seen them split and reform several times.

The 2012 incarnation features the original line-up of front man Shaun Ryder, his brother Paul on bass, Gary Whelan (drums), Rowetta (backing vocals), Mark Day (guitar), Paul “PD” Davis (keyboards) and dancer Mark “Bez” Berry.

Klub Revolution boss Alan Mcleod said: “It’s [the Happy Mondays’] only date on their European tour and they said it’s the one that is really standing out for them … They are absolutely looking forward to it, and they are very impressed with the venue and its technical specifications.”

Shetland Arts director Gwilym Gibbons added: “Shetland Arts is delighted to be working with local promoter Klub Revolution to put on this excellent event. This opportunity demonstrates Mareel’s potential, as a quality venue in a unique location, to attract renowned acts to Shetland as they tour Europe.”
