Happy Mondays are to play the Carling Academy on October 2, while KT Tunstall will perform at the City Hall on October 20. Both tickets go on sale on Friday - Tunstall at 9am and Happy Mondays at 9.30am.

Happy Mondays won rave reviews from their recent comeback shows and the band release their first album in more than 14 years, Unkle Dysfunktional, on Monday July 2. Support will come in the form of The Sunshine Underground.

Following the success of her five times platinum debut album Eye To The Telescope, KT Tunstall, pictured left, is set to release her second album, Drastic Fantastic, on September 10.

The release will be followed up in October when she takes her highly acclaimed live band on the road for the her first UK dates of the year.

Drastic Fantastic's September release will follow a busy summer for Tunstall, which will see her perform at the American leg of the worldwide Live Earth Event on July 7 at the New Jersey Giants Stadium alongside Kanye West, The Police and Smashing Pumpkins, as well as at Glastonbury and V2007 festivals in the UK.
