Madness reveal Grandslam 2015 summer tour dates
16 Feb 2015
Madness have announced a huge open-air summer tour which will visit the UK’s biggest sporting grounds.
The ska band are set to play a number of outdoor shows at racecourses, cricket grounds and football stadiums on their Grandslam Madness tour.
The group, who enjoyed a sell-out tour in 2014, will start their summer dates at Lincoln’s Sincil Bank Stadium on 29 May.
Madness will perform shows throughout June, July and September including performances in venues such as Newmarket Racecourse (as part of the Newmarket Nights programme), Silverstone Circuit and Headingley Cricket Ground in Leeds. The tour comes to an end on 26 September at Durham County Cricket Club. Full tour dates below.
Originally from Camden Town in London, Madness became one of the ‘70s and ‘80s most prominent bands. They were at the forefront of the 2 Tone ska revival with some of the biggest hits including Our House, It Must Be Love and Baggy Trousers.
The Grandslam Madness tour will see the group perform their most-loved tracks such as House of Fun and Wings of a Dove alongside their newer hits. Their latest release was 2013’s Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da.
Tickets for Madness’s tour go on general sale on Friday 20 February.
