Madness have announced dates as part of Forest Live 2021, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
Drawing on their musical roots in ska, Madness were responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of their generation with the ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life. Creating their trademark ‘nutty’ sound, they became the UK’s consummate singles group with a huge haul of hits such as ‘One Step Beyond’, ‘My Girl’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘Embarrassment’, ‘Grey Day’, ‘House Of Fun’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’ and ‘Wings Of A Dove’. Last year, Madness celebrated their 40th Anniversary, testament to the band’s enduring popularity as music makers, with the loyal ‘Madheads’ fanbase always craving their legendary live shows.
The original Nutty Boys, back together with all their greatest hits, including 'Baggy Trousers' and 'It Must Be Love'. They are Britain's most successful chart band in music history, having had 21 top twenty singles in a seven year period from '78-'86, and many more since (over 30 in total). Despite their impressive back catalogue, Madness continue to record new material and released the critically acclaimed studio albums 'The Liberty Of Norton Folgate' and 'Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da' in recent years and 'Can't Touch Us Now' in 2016.
