Happy Mondays reunion on for 2012?

Hallelujah indeed – if reports surfacing in the tabloids today are to be believed anyway! That’s right, Madchester stalwarts happy mondays are said to be following The Stone Roses out of retirement and back into the big time with a reunion tour in 2012 to coincide with the re-release of their classic early 90’s album Pills N Thrills And Bellyaches.

One of those trusted sources The Sun always manage to get hold of told the paper:

“After the success of The Stone Roses reunion, there’s a real clamour to get the group back on the road and document it properly. Shaun and his brother Paul have a notoriously patchy relationship but they’re willing to sort things out for the sake of the band.

“The Mondays have had offers from film companies… who want to follow them for the reunion. There will be gigs next summer and a re-release of their classic album Pills ‘n’ Thrills And Bellyaches. A DVD will also be released of the comeback shows and the documentary.”

Sounds to us like Shaun and the rest are just trying to cash in on his recent re-emergence as a reality TV success and the Madchester revival caused by The Stone Roses reunion, but who are we to judge!?
