Looking ahead to the tour Happy Mondays’ frontman Shaun Ryder said, “Great to be doing twenty-five years of “Pills ‘n Thrills”. Here’s to another twenty-five years. I’m going to remember it this time.”

Ryder added, “There’s some really great work on “Pills ‘n Thrills”. It was the album that put us on Top of The Pops.”
