Madness announce intimate London fan show at 1979 prices (2019)


Story by Jack Foley

JUST ahead of the launch of their legendary Two Tone tour, Madness have announced that on November 17, 2019, they will play a special intimate fan show at London’s Electric Ballroom.

The gig takes place on exactly the same day 40 years later that they first played the venue and – in one step beyond the call of duty – will take place at the same door price as 1979 – at £2.50 (plus booking fees).

Tickets for this special date go on sale on Friday, November 1 at 10am.

Madness are one of the top 20 selling UK groups of all time, with seven top ten albums, 22 top 20 hits and over six million album sales to their name.

So far, Madness have celebrated their 40th anniversary in style up and down the United Kingdom. For the very first time the Madness played with an orchestra at Kenwood House scored by the legendary David Arnold, they were joined by Paul Weller and Jimmy Cliff at their legendary The House Of Common last week.

If that wasn’t enough, they’ve found time to record brand new material for 2020!

So, it seems fitting that they finish the year going back to where it all started… in their beloved Camden.

Madness will therefore start celebrating their past, present and future with this very intimate fan show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom on November 17 ahead of their trio of Roundhouse shows this December.

Tickets for the Electric Ballroom show will be limited to 2 per person, per show and credit card used to purchase the tickets will be required to be presented by the Lead Attendee upon arrival at the venue on the night of the show.

The band’s three shows at London’s iconic Roundhouse – on December 15, 16 and 17 – have all now sold out.
