Madness announce The Sound of Madness UK Arena tour with The Fratellis (2018)


Story by Jack Foley

MADNESS will be embarking on a major UK arena tour this December (2018) and will be joined by special guests The Fratellis.

The Sound of Madness is a combination of people from North London that got together in the mid to late ‘70s and came up with a cacophony of music, noise, clothes, dressing up and having fun.

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. It’s been an incredible few years for the nutty boys from their gold selling Can’t Touch us Now album, sell out shows to their recent compilation, Full House – The Very Best Of Madness.

This summer sees the MADHEADS gather at nice big houses in the country as part of their Stately Madness tour and will return to Minehead with the legendary House of Fun Weekender before embarking on a full UK tour in December.

Madness will be playing all the hits and fan favourites plus some new tracks.

Tickets for The Sound Of Madness go on sale on Friday, April 27 at 9.30am.
