Madness – UK Tour December 2009

Madness continue a phenomenal year that with The Liberty Of Norton Folgate UK tour in December. This is the first uk tour for the album that saw the band reclaim their rightful place at the peak of Britain’s pop hierarchy with a return to the UK Albums Top 5 and a host of critical appreciation for ‘a work of great craft and charm’ (Evening Standard). Their performance at Glastonbury drew massive crowds for a set that reminded everyone of a catalogue crammed with some of the greatest moments in pop music, July’s Madstock was a highlight of the London festival season and throughout the summer the band have toured Europe playing festival sets to massive crowds. When Oasis split at the Rock An Seine Festival last week it was Madness that the promoters turned to in order to keep the crowd happy. Needless to say the band delivered.

Prior to the dates Madness release two albums. The first, ‘Total Madness’, a comprehensive compilation of their finest moments through three decades of pop, is out on September 21st with a second disc featuring the classic music videos whilst October 26th sees a very special re issue of the band’s debut ‘One Step Beyond’ with a second disc of rare and unreleased tracks from the band’s formative years and the album era.
