Madness to play Thetford Forest gig in summer 2021
They're one of the most popular bands of the 1980s and they're coming to Norfolk next summer.
Organisers of the Forest Live shows have announced Madness will take to the Thetford Forest stage on Saturday, June 19, 2021, with tickets going on sale later this week.
They're the third big name to be confirmed for next year's line-up, after Keane and Rag'n'Bone Man.
Drawing on their musical roots in ska, Madness were responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of their generation with the ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life.
Creating their trademark ‘nutty’ sound, they became the UK’s consummate singles group with a huge haul of hits such as One Step Beyond, My Girl, Baggy Trousers, Embarrassment, Grey Day, House Of Fun, Driving In My Car, Our House and Wings Of A Dove.
Last year, the band, which is playing two Forest Live shows in 2021, celebrated its 40th anniversary in the music business.
Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 23, at 9am, via www.forestryengland.uk/music.
