Happy Mondays - Happy Mondays Reform After 19 Years
Cult British band Happy Mondays are reforming their original line-up for a series of gigs this year (12) - the first time the founding members have toured together since they broke up in 1993.
The Step On hitmakers disbanded 19 years ago as frontman Shaun Ryder's drug addiction spiralled out of control, and when they reunited in 1999, original guitarist Mark Day and keyboardist Paul Davis refused to join the comeback.
But it appears the rockers have made up and put their differences behind them as they are currently touting for gigs across Europe, according to TheQuietus.com.
A statement obtained by the website reads, "The rumours are true... Happy Mondays, the seminal Manchester band who changed musical culture forever has reformed and will be available for select live gigs across 2012."
The announcement has sparked speculation the band will be supporting their fellow '90s rockers Stone Roses at their sold-out reunion gigs in Manchester, England in June and July (12).
