The Happy Mondays are widely credited with innovating the “Madchester” movement that shook UK music to its core and saw the end of hair metal and synth pop in the mid to late 80’s. After signing to the infamous Factory Records, Shaun and the band took the world (quite literally) by storm. They were a band that never did things easily – once promoting their own show at the G-Mex venue in Manchester and selling out to 10,000 capacity within a week because their promoter at the time wasn’t confident in the show!
After headlining Glastonbury , producing albums with Paul Oakenfold, touring the world and selling millions of records the band split in 1993. Never one to be kept down though – Shaun Ryder returned in 1995 with Black Grape – an immediate success co-fronted by former Monday’s man and close friend Bez.
The years after this have seen Shaun undertake a relentless schedule – a Happy Mondays re-union and subsequent world arena tour was coupled with collaborating with Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz. Shaun also appeared on ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!’ and the infamous ‘Most Haunted’ episode on Living TV, whilst signing with Russell Watson, supplying voiceovers for the Grand Theft Auto videogame, becoming essentially the leading role in the classic film ‘24 hour party people’ and now the author of a bestselling autobiography about his life called ‘Twisting my melon.’
Whatever you think about Shaun Ryder, he possesses what countless others have tried and failed to achieve in the current celebrity driven culture – Staying Power.
This much anticipated return to the Capital will see him perform all of the classic hits from Happy Mondays, Black Grape, collaborations and solo material across a career spanning set.
