Madness to perform at Newmarket Racecourses next summer
Following the recent announcement that Rudimental will be gracing the stage at next year's Newmarket Nights, the Jockey Club Live will also welcome the return of the ska legends on Friday, June 21.
National treasures and one of the music industry's best-loved bands, Madness - fronted by the charismatic Suggs - have always had an innate ability to write songs that sparkle with the stuff of British life, things that find poetry in everyday reality.
This has resulted in numerous hits over the years, including Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love, Driving in My Car, Our House and the 1982 number one hit, House of Fun.
These tunes have undeniably left their mark on British pop culture and their spirit endures in the music of Blur, The Streets, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys and many more.
In the last few years the band have also delivered historic performances at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert and at the 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony, cementing them as one of the nation’s most successful outfits.
Amy Starkey, regional director at Jockey Club Racecourses – East Region, said: "We are delighted to be welcoming Madness back to the Newmarket Nights stage. They are an extremely popular choice with our customers and always put on an amazing performance into the evening.
"All I can say is make sure you bring your dancing shoes!"
Madness are the third Newmarket Nights headliner to be confirmed for 2019, with Rudimental (DJ Set) set to headline on Friday, July 26 and Thriller Live the previous Friday (July 19).
Tickets go on sale at 8am on Tuesday, December 18 via thejockeyclublive.co.uk, with a presale available to customers at 8am on Monday, December 17. Tickets are priced from £32.
All T&C’s are available on newmarket.thejockeyclub.co.uk. There will be hospitality packages available to suit all budgets.
