THE HAPPY MONDAYS LIVE AT LEEDS O2 ACADEMY

After 30 years in the game One thing always remains with The Happy Mondays, They deliver an entertaining and diverse show and have an absolute blast whilst they’re doing it.
The Band were seemingly flawless in Leeds, Shaun’s lyrics spot on, Rowetta can still belt out that power house voice with each of her dress changes as stunning as the next and Bez is consistently mesmerising as he energetically bounced around the stage at one point topless.

They ignited The O2 Academy with classics such as Step On, Loose Fit and Kinky Afro yet there’s always something extra special about hearing Hallelujah Club Mix played live, you drift to another dimension and could be anywhere in the world for the tracks entirety.

The Miscellaneous crowd’s age group spanned over at least Three Decades which secures our theory that The Madchester scene is infinite and will continue to be celebrated within the younger generation.

The Tour continues through to December 23rd and The Monday’s next stop is Birmingham’s O2 Institute.
