Has Shaun Ryder got that visa thing fixed yet? When Black Grape tried to do a US Tour he was not allowed into the country.

Wonder if Bez is part of the deal? Saw them on the Pills Thrills Bellyaches tour and that guy was as fucked up as anyone I've ever seen on a stage.

There isn't any bands i want to see on Sunday other than the Mondays. Hopefully they'll play locally in L.A. in a smaller venue. Saw them in '90 or was it '91 at the Palladium and they put on a great show.

Woo hoo, lets hope Shaun Ryder totally makes a tit of himself while performing. It could be quite a spectacle.

the story with the mondays is always a big fat question mark. Who knows who will show - who will be wasted beyond repair, who won't be allowed in the country, who will be mad and storm off the stage?

etc....

sounds like a reliable second tier headliner.

I was at the Gorillaz Demon Days Live tour last year in NYC and Shaun Ryder performed "DARE" so his visa situation should be better resolved. His weight situation is definitely not resolved.

Shaun Ryder appears to have turned a corner. He's off methadone and on what appears to be a serious health kick (see the linked article). The Mondays could/should be the surprise hit. I can't wait!

I hope they cover Dare...it rocks.........

This may be an urban myth and I can't be arsed checking it....but some geezer once told me that the Tune was meant to be "It's There", but as Shaun was so fucked he kept getting it wrong and it would come out "it's Dare", and the rest as they is history.

Or not....

I'm just sayin

thats no myth, its just truth. Shaun just cant pronounce "there" correctly. Every time he says "there", it comes out sounding like he said "dare." Hence, D.A.R.E.

Ask a british person to say "garage". :rotfl

It will be a hoot. Shaun is very animated live, even though he sounds like shit.

For my sakes, I hope they just put them on the main stage. I wont have to move for 4 sets (Manu Chao, AIR, Happy Mondays, and RAGE)

I've seen the Mondays a few times and they have never disapointed.

Sean Ryder really hasnt improved with age though. He used to be quite tasty when he was younger, but i guess years of drug abuse has ruined him and his voice.

nevermind - they have the tunes, that's what's important.

"Bob's yer uncle"

Sleeziest song of the 90's.

Marvelous!

I just played kinky afro over and over when I turned 30......it seemed apt.....

I honestly believe Pills, Thrills.....is one of them seminal albums....that paved the way for a thousand bands after.......

And they are the reason I'm going coachella this year.

Ive wanted to see them play for 17 years.
Even if they are just OK, Ill be floored.

i hope they play in the sahara, but i'm not confident that they will.

it looks like IM will be playing in the sahara from 11-12. i'm sure PVD will be on from 9-11. i don't think happy mondays will go on before PVD. that would be blasphemous.

Wow, I haven't followed the Mondays since the early 90s and the years have not been kind. Looks like it will be back up singers with Shaun Ryder occasionally yelling into the mic. Even that will kick ass though. My ass will be shaking along with everyone else when that guitar riff for "Loose Fit" gets going.
