Shaun Ryder set for homecoming show
The annual concert, at Manchester‘s MEN Arena, has been partly organised by former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke. Money raised will go towards helping cancer patients in the north-west.
Speaking about the gig and cause, Happy Mondays said: “Versus Cancer is a great charity and we’re really pleased to be part of it once again. We’ve been involved pretty much every year and it’s a cause we love. Everyone’s getting together behind the scenes and working on the sets and collaborations to make sure the night is one to remember, and we can’t wait to get onstage.”
Tickets for the gig are on sale now. See Versuscancer.org for more information.
