INDIE icon Shaun Ryder will tell tales of his “mad life” when he stops off in Stourbridge as part of a a national tour.

The former Happy Mondays and Black Grape frontman – who has also appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox and I’m A Celeb - is hitting the road for a new spoken word tour.

Shaun Ryder said: "I have certainly had a bit of a mad life and I can’t wait to share all my stories from Happy Mondays, Black Grape and beyond.

"This is me at my most honest. Nothing is off the table – expect the unexpected and prepare for me to twist your melons, man."

Kelly Martin, venue manager for Stourbridge Town Hall, said: "He’s the wild man of rock who became a national treasure.

"Shaun will talk candidly about his hedonistic life in the music industry, his successful TV career, and everything in between.

"Fans can look forward to a carnival of excess, wild tales, and improbable truths, as they enjoy the talents of a unique rock'n'roll star dubbed Britpop's answer to WB Yeats."

Tickets start from £30, with special VIP and Meet & Greet tickets also available.
