Happy Mondays and The Bluetones debut at Arena

Bondholder Derby LIVE has announced a unique one-off gig to take place this autumn featuring alternative rock band Happy Mondays and indie band The Bluetones.

The concert will take place at Bondholder Derby Arena on Saturday 15th October as part of fellow Bondholder Derby County Football Club's former captain Shaun Barker's testimonial team.

Shaun commented: "Following a meeting with Derby LIVE, I was delighted that we decided to collaborate and put on the first major music event at Derby's new, impressive arena. For that gig to be Happy Mondays and The Bluetones with special guests still to be announced is so exciting for me. It will be a great gig for me and, I hope, the people of Derby."

Tickets for the gig which brings together two giants of English alternative and indie rock together to perform on the same night will be available from Monday 18th July at 10am from derbylive.co.uk, derbyarena.co.uk or from the Sales and Information Centre on (01332) 255 800.

For that gig to be Happy Mondays and The Bluetones with special guests still to be announced is so exciting for me. It will be a great gig for me and, I hope, the people of Derby.
