Happy Mondays have announced details of a UK tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their second album 'Bummed'.

The Madchester band will play the 1988 LP in full at a number of gigs to take place this November and December, kicking off with a show at Canterbury Kings Hall on November 21 and wrapping up with a gig at Bristol O2 Academy on December 14. The band reformed with their full original line-up for the first time in over 19 years in 2012, although their maraca-shaking mascot Bez later announced that he wouldn't be performing with the band on tour, but would instead act as compere and DJ at the shows.

They have reunited twice before, most recently in 2004, but without founding members Mark Day, Paul Davis and Paul Ryder. Paul had sworn he wanted nothing to do with the band again when they split for a second time in 2000. In 2012, meanwhile, the Mondays confirmed that they were working on a new album – which would be the first new material from the original line-up since 1992's '...Yes Please!' – but the LP has yet been released.

Happy Mondays will play:

Canterbury Kings Hall (November 21)
London The Forum (22)
Manchester Ritz (23)
Norwich UEA (25)
Leicester O2 Academy (28)
Newcastle O2 Academy (29)
Leeds O2 Academy (30)
Glasgow O2 Academy (December 1)
Hertfordshire The Forum (4)
Bournemouth O2 Academy (5)
Birmingham O2 Academy (6)
Liverpool O2 Academy (7)
Sheffield O2 Academy (12)
Oxford O2 Academy (13)
