Happy Mondays, ticket stub. The New Ritz, NYC USA, August 4th 1989.


Here’s my ticket stub from August 1989 from one of the Happy Mondays dates on the American ‘Bummed’ tour. That night they were supporting The Pixies who were a really big indie band at the time. The Happy Mondays performance that night was captured on film and later featured on the ‘Madchester Rave on’ video, Fac 262 1989. Excellent night it was too!


A photo of Happy Mondays taken by the renowned Manchester photographer Kevin Cummins. From the same US tour in 1989, taken on the Staten Island ferry in NYC. Bez refers to this as his favourite photo taken of the band!!

And something to listen to; Happy Mondays ‘Country Song’ from the album ‘Bummed’ Fact 220 November 1988.
