Madchester band Happy Mondays played Dublin's Vicar Street last year on their 'Pills, Thrills & Bellyaches' tour - and now Shaun Ryder and co. are planning a return to the same venue this year.

The 24-hour-party-people will hit Vicar Street at the end of the year - December 15th - for a full Greatest Hits show.

The current line-up is: Shaun Ryder - vocals, Mark Day - guitar, Paul Ryder - bass, Gary Whelan - drums, Rowetta - vocals and Dan Broad - keyboardist and musical director.

Tickets are €35 and on sale from usual outlets this Friday, March 17th at 10am.
