Bursting onto the scene in 1979 with One Step Beyond that reached number two in the UK Album Charts and included classics such as Night Boat to Cairo, My Girl, The Prince and the eponymous single, One Step Beyond. The album remained in the charts for over a year capitalising on the ska revival in the UK.
The next few years saw equal success with hit after hit keeping The Nutty Boys at the top of the charts. Madness had 15 singles reach the UK top ten including 80's Classics such as Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love, Driving in My Car, Our House, Wings of a Dove and finally scored a UK number one single with the iconic House of Fun in 1982.
Madness will be supported by UK newcomer Emily Capell, who has just released her first album Combat Frock as well as DJ Katie Owen, who is currently touring with Jo Whiley. Emily has brought a new genre of country, ska, doo wopp and pop to the 2020 music scene.
A night of singalong hits is guaranteed.
