MADNESS Announce 2013 ‘Oui, Oui, Si, Si, Ja, Ja, Da, Da’ Tour

Legends To Perform At Classic British Events 

Following their sold out 2012 Arena tour, British Legends Madness have today confirmed they will be touring a number of classic British events over the summer. The band will take in ten shows ranging from Newcastle Racecourse, Sandown Park Racecourse, Newmarket Racecourse and Northants Cricket between June and September.

The legendary band will arrive at the County Ground in Northampton for an outdoor show on Sunday 22nd September.

Madness are renowned for their high energy live shows and their love of British tradition, so what better summer venues to play than some of theUK’s most iconic racecourses. The band have also confirmed that the legendary Madness House Of Fun Weekender will take place in November of 2013.

On the tour the band said, “A day at the races, British summer time, sounds suitably nutty to us!”

Winter 2012 saw the band complete their biggest tour to date, playing arenas all over the country, including two sell out nights at London’s O2 Arena. The tour received much critical acclaim, the Guardian said, ‘House Of Fun, Baggy Trousers, Our House and It Must Be Love is as remarkable run of indelible pop songs as you’ll hear any British band string together’. The Telegraph added, ‘Following their performances at the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics, Madness seem finally to have attained the national-treasure status that they’ve long deserved.

2012 was an incredible year for Madness. They performed on the roof of Buckingham Palace for the Queens Jubilee, played to a television audience of millions at the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony and released their 10th studio album to much acclaim and top 10 Official Chat placing.

The bands latest single, ‘Never Knew Your Name’ is out now and can be purchased here.
