MANCHESTER indie legends the Happy Mondays have announced a 29-date greatest hits tour.

Shauna Ryder, Bez, Rowetta and crew will play Glasgow's O2 Academy on October 26.

Fans can expect to hear some of the band's biggest hits inlcuding Steph On, Kinky Afro , Hallelujah and Loose Fit.

Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder said, “Be great to be back out on the road with Happy Mondays for some pre-Christmas partying.

"Looking forward to playing all the hits and more at these shows.”

After signing to Tony Wilson’s Factory Records, the late ‘80s saw the Happy Mondays become the pioneers of the Madchester sound, as they blended a love of funk, rock, psychedelia and house with the sounds of the UK’s emerging rave scene.

The band’s third album, 1990’s platinum-selling ‘Pills 'n' Thrills And Bellyaches’, led to the Happy Mondays crossing over into the mainstream to become icons of Britain’s biggest cultural phenomenon for a generation.

In 2016, the Happy Mondays won the Ivor Novello’s Inspiration Award, further cementing their reputation as one of Britain’s most influential and loved bands.
