Happy Mondays are to headline the second FAC 51 The Hacienda event at The Albert Hall Manchester on Saturday 11th October 2014 as the Mondays perform their full live show in a rare club setting along with a soundtrack provided by many of The Hacienda’s finest DJ’s.

Following FAC 51’s sold out New Years Eve party at the venue, the first dance event to be held at there, The Hacienda’s return is much anticipated with it being a hometown concert for The Mondays and The Hac, plans are to follow on from the well received party which saw in 2014.

With The Mondays having recently played many major festivals over the summer, the gigs see the band in a much more low key environment as they perform for the club where they first started out at a “Battle Of The Bands” concert in 1985 before signing to Factory Records and releasing four seminal albums with the label.

With The Mondays looking to mix up their best known material, album tracks and rarities from their extensive back catalogue, fans can look forward to a wide ranging set delivered by the original line up who have been touring to great reviews and reactions since they first came back together around two years ago.
