British legends Madness have today announced details of a brand new UK tour, ALL FOR THE M.A.D.H.E.A.D. for December 2014.
The new tour, their first UK live dates in over a year follows the premise of M.A.D.H.E.A.D:
THERE IS ONLY ONE MADHEAD. IT IS ABOUT YOU, ABOVE YOU, BELOW YOU AND WITHIN YOU. IT IS ALL AROUND YOU. IT IS YOU. INSIDE THE MADHEAD IS ALL YOUR THOUGHTS. THE MADHEAD CAN HEAR THE MUSIC. THE MADHEAD CAN FEEL THE MUSIC. THE MADHEAD MUST DANCE. THE MADHEAD MUST SING. I ARE THE MADHEAD. YOU ARE THE MADHEAD. WE ARE THE MADHEAD.
The last couple of years have been incredible for the nutty boys. Last year saw Madness play London's iconic Alexandra Palace, said goodbye to one of London's most recognisable landmarks, BBC Television Centre, performed a series of outdoor shows and released their tenth acclaimed studio album 'Oui, Oui, Si, Si, Ja, Ja, Da, Da'. Not only that they had to chance to produce their own ales 'Gladness' and 'Night Boat'.
Since their Alexandra Palace date last September Madness have been locked up the studio making brand new music. Watch this space..
Ahead of their December tour the legendary Madness House Of Fun Weekender returns to Minehead in November and is preceded by European Summer Madness with appearances at Mallorca and Ibiza Rocks as well as shows in France, Italy, Russia and The Netherlands.
