Madness show their love of the common people with their magnificent House Of Common

They will be joined by a whole host of stars including Toots And The Maytals, David Rodigan, UK All Stars, Mike Skinner & Murkage Present Tonga, Ms Dynamite, Norman Jay MBE and Kiko Bun.
Special mention has to be made of reggae and dub legend Lee Scratch
Perry who will also be performing.
Plus many more still to be announced!
Madness are the very best of British ska. Having formed in North London during 1976, the band came to prominence with the rise of 2 Tone in the late seventies and early eighties.
With catchy songs, crazy videos and a occasionally a bit of social commentary, Madness quickly achieved massive chart success with such classics sings as Baggy Trousers
, My Girl
, One Step Beyond
, Driving In My Car
, It Must Be Love
, Night Boat To Cairo
, Wings Of A Dove
, and House Of Fun
They have released eleven studio albums to date.
Led by the enormous personality of their much loved singer Suggs, the band is currently comprised of Chris Foreman, Mike Barson, Lee Thompson, Daniel “Woody” Woodgate and Mark Bedford.
No stranger to success Madness have been well decorated having won the 1983 Ivor Novello Award for Best Song with Our House
and another in 2000 for Outstanding Song Collection.
Their impact on the musical landscape was recognised in 2005 when they were received into the Mojo Hall of fame and 2010 saw them receive the Idol Award at the Q Awards.
Still a massive crowd pleaser. Madness concerts attract young and old.
