Madness announce The O2 to host The Charge Of The Mad Brigade Tour finale
The legendary Madness will embark on their biggest UK arena tour to date this November and December taking in 13 cities, with the tour's finale taking place at The O2, the world's most successful music and entertainment venue.
The tour will see the band showcase new tracks from their forthcoming album - the follow up to the critically acclaimed, The Liberty Of Norton Folgate - as well playing all the hits and fan favourites.
The tour will start in spectacular style at the Madness House Of Fun Weekender - the Madness curated festival - now becoming a staple part of the winter music scene. They will play two live sets at The Nutty Weekend - the full bill is yet to be announced but will include genres from ska to reggae to electronica. As well as a brilliant musical line up, The House Of Fun Weekender will host an eclectic mix of "Nutty" entertainment - Rockeoke, comedy, darts, musical bingo, silent disco and games and frivolity from the Squeaky Hill crew (providing "subversive silliness, idiotic interaction and frivolous fun.")
The arena tour finale will be in the band's hometown of London with the closing night at The O2 on Friday 14 December 2012.
Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on May 25.
