Race goers will be in for a night of 24 hour party people fun as Happy Mondays announce that they will perform at Doncaster Racecourse after the racing on May 19.
Eastside has five pairs of County Enclusure tickets for this rare opportunity to see a legendary band. Formed in 1980 in Salford, with Shaun Ryder on lead vocals, the Happy Mondays were an important part of the Manchester music scene.
Their album ‘Pills ’n’ Thrills and Bellyaches went platinum in the UK selling more than 350,000 copies, putting them firmly on the map as one of the most influential bands to come out of the UK .
Singles ’Step On' and ‘Kinky Afro' from this album both reached number five in the UK singles chart. Tim Banfield, executive director at Doncaster Racecourse, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing Happy Mondays to Doncaster for our May Music Live event.
Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder said: “We're performing better than ever and I love getting together with the band, blasting out all our great tunes we've made together over the decades. It's gonna be great.”
Bez, the group’s dancer and percussionist, added, “Just as I thought it was all over, the party's starting again. Look forward to seeing you all.”
Closing date for entries: Friday 27th April 2018
