The original ‘Nutty Boys’ are back with a mammoth ‘Do Not Adjust Your Nut’ tour taking place across the UK this November and December. The tour sees the infamous pop/ska band from Camden Town perform old and new hits alike as they follow up the success of their most recent album ‘The Liberty of Norton Folgate’. The album demonstrated a return to fine form and reached number five in the UK charts. Support on the tour comes from special guest Paul Heaton, formerly of the UK chart topping band Beautiful South. Madness has been wowing crowds now for over three decades; don’t miss out on your chance to see this incredible band live! After forming in 1976 and undergoing several shifts in the line-up, the band finally settled on the name Madness, the name paying homage to a song by their idol ska/reggae artist Prince Buster. The current line up has been in place since 1979 and consists of Graham McPherson, known to you and I as ‘Suggs’ at the helm and joined by Mike Barson, Lee Thompson, Chris Foreman, Mark Bedford, Daniel Woodgate and Carl Smyth. The same seven members have stayed true to the band and have seen hit after hit for the last thirty years. The band emerged in the late 1970s as part of the 2 Tone ska revival and have continued to be an enormously popular band since then, with the band continuing to be a huge success throughout the 80s with the band spending 214 weeks on the UK singles chart over the course of the decade, holding the record for most weeks spent by a group in the 1980s UK singles charts. Singles released during this era include House of Fun, It Must be Love and Baggy Trousers were released.
