Happy Mondays to play Ibiza Rocks and Mallorca Rocks

The ‘Rocks’  summer line ups are always packed with the biggest international artists and the most exciting breakthrough talent but organisers have always made it a tradition to celebrate some of live music’s true pioneers. With that in mind, this summer, Team Rocks is excited to welcome the godfathers of Madchester, Happy Mondays to make their highly anticipated Rocks debut.

Discovered through the legendary Ha├žienda Club in Manchester the Happy Mondays became the flag bearers of the baggy movement and were almost single handedly responsible for putting late 80's Manchester at the centre of the musical universe.  This year has seen the band reform their original line up of Shaun and Paul Ryder, Gary Whelan, Mark Day, Paul Davis, Rowetta and Bez, for the first time in 19 years.

No strangers to the White Isle, it’s been 22 years since Happy Mondays first played Ibiza and became one of the most highly influential bands of the 1980’s. Speaking about their return Shaun Ryder said "We're all excited to be playing in Ibiza after all these years. It'll be great to perform in the sun with Ibiza Rocks"

From Step On to Kinky Afro, Hallelujah to Loose Fit, Happy Mondays will put on a hit packed, anthem filled show, live under the Balearic Stars at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel this summer. They join a line up which also includes fellow Manchester legends New Order who play their first ever live show in Ibiza in September. Other highlights still to come during this sun drenched season are Ben Howard, Kasabian, Professor Green, Plan B, Chase and Status, Paolo Nutini, Tinie Tempah, Example, Azealia Banks, Bloc Party and the Closing Parties with Two Door Cinema Club.  Let the good times ‘Rock’ and roll!

Happy Mondays will play Mallorca rocks on the 21st August and Ibiza Rocks on the 22nd
