Known for their raucous live sets, Madness will headline on Friday, July 19.

Expect a show teeming with hits from the nutty boys' unrivalled back catalogue along with songs from the new album ‘Theatre of the Absurd Presents C'est la Vie’, which on Friday became the band’s first studio album to top the UK Album Charts.

With their huge singles such as ‘One Step Beyond’, ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘House of Fun’, ‘Our House’, and more, Madness have become one of the most celebrated British bands of all-time since their emergence from Camden Town in the 1970s. Among many awards the band have received, in 2000 they were awarded an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Song Collection.

Lightning Seeds are the brainchild of writer, singer, guitarist and producer Ian Broudie. Celebrating their 35th anniversary in 2024, Ian as Lightning Seeds released debut album ‘Cloudcukooland’ featuring the hit single ‘Pure’ in 1989. Second album ‘Sense’ followed before the release of the seminal album ‘Jollification’ in 1994 which has so far sold nearly 1 million copies. In 1996 the iconic single ‘3 Lions’ for the England football team topped the charts many times over.

The show will be opened by the Old Time Sailors, who take audiences back to the 19th century with their immersive experience of seafaring music performed with traditional instruments.

The gig announcement follows hard on the heals of the first act @newburytoday revealed last week; Pete Tong’s Ibiza Classics show, which plays there the following day (Saturday, July 20). See newburytoday.co.uk/news/tickets-go-on-sale-for-pete-tong-s-ibiza-classics-show-at-en-9340744/
