Happy Mondays To Play Manchester Charity Gig

The Happy Mondays and the Inspiral Carpets are set to play the the third Versus Cancer charity gig taking place next month.

Also on the bill will be The Fratellis and Fun Lovin' Criminals.

The show takes place at Manchester's MEN Arena on February 23, and as in previous years, will see collaborations between the artists on stage.

Previous gigs have seen a partial reformation of the Stone Roses, with Ian Brown and Mani joining Andy Rourke onstage, as well as Echo & The Bunnymen teaming up with New Order's Peter Hook to perform 'Blue Monday'.

More bands for next month's gig are still to be announced, and tickets at £40 are on sale now through Ticketmaster and See Tickets.
