The final show announced at Kenwood House is a return to their own turf by Madness, with a very special show celebrating their 40th anniversary – Madness XL.
Fresher of face and fleeter of foot than ever, it’s hard to believe 2019 will mark forty years since a ragtag bunch of self-proclaimed ‘hoolies and urchins’ first emerged, gloriously unreconstructed from the back streets of Camden Town fusing reggae, punk and pop on their classic album ‘One Step Beyond’
A real homecoming for the group of local North London boys, who played their first ever show in the Borough of Camden in 1979, Madness will treat the crowd at the well-heeled surrounds of Kenwood House to a true one-off, career-spanning set which will see the Nutty Boys joined live by a full orchestra – plus a few other surprises!
Tightly knit into the very fabric of British life, making like somewhere between the Krays and Monty Python, lies the unparalleled story of Madness. One of the most successful pop groups ever, they continue to defy expectations, trends and the aging process.
