Bez, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davies, Paul Ryder, Rowetta and Shaun Ryder – the original line up of Happy Mondays have announced they are back together for the first time in over 19 years and will embark on a UK tour in May.

Frontman Shaun Ryder said, "We all met up last week and some of the lads haven't seen each other in over 10, 15 years. It's as if we've never been apart – so good to all be in the same room again. We can't wait now to get on tour and play the songs that made us famous."

Fans can expect a feel good set of hits including 'Step On', 'Kinky Afro', 'Hallelujah', '24 Hour Party People' and many, many more.
