Happy Mondays and THE FARM have announced plans to play two special shows at LONDON CARLING BRIXTON ACADEMY in March.

The ‘48 Hour Party People’ gigs will also feature DJ slots from Primal Scream’s Mani and Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon.

The dates are The Farm’s first in 10 years and Happy Mondays’s second and third UK shows since 2000, following their one-off Get Loaded In The Park appearance last summer.

At the time both [a][/a] frontman Shaun Ryder and his dancing sidekick Bez, who is currently appearing in Channel 4’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’, both hinted that they may play again.

Both bands will be headlining the Brixton shows on March 25-26 with support coming from Stone Roses tribute band The Clone Roses on the second date.
