Madness Announce XL Performance With Orchestra At London's Kenwood House And House Of Common Return

Monday, 28 January 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

Madness will celebrate their 40th anniversary with Madness XL shows.

The ska legends have announced they will perform a career spanning set with a full scale orchestra at Kenwood House in London on June 15 as part of the Heritage Live series. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on February 1.

They will also bring their House Of Common festival back to Clapham Common in London on August 26. Tickets also go on general sale on February 1.

As if that wasn't enough, the band have announced the release of their autobiography, Before We Was We, on September 26 through Virgin Books. Frontman Suggs said:

“40 years at the coal face of modern popular culture. Man and boy. Dedicated to the purveyance of popular music of quality and distinction to the people. Dedicated in our selfless quest to have the nation singing, dancing and making merry through some of the darkest times of the last four decades. There will be feasts, street parties extraordinary concerts of every shape and size up and down the nation. 

We saw off 8 prime ministers, 12 England managers and a nasty bout of lumbago. But, it’s not the endless achievements, not the unforgettable memories, it’s the fact we’re even still alive! (and miraculously in the rudest of health, thanks for asking.) Raise your glasses, lower your swords ‘arise sir madness!’ Get stuck in! Here’s to the next forty. XL."

Madness are currently working on new material that's due to drop later this year and have a busy summer ahead, with shows in the diary during May, June, July and August. Head below for dates.
