Everyone’s favourite ska band Madness are heading to Suffolk this summer as part of a four-date tour of UK stately homes.

The British pop icons, who have been thrilling audiences for almost four decades, will headline their House of Fun open air gig at Euston Hall, near Thetford, on July 7.

Formed in Camden in 1976, Madness have chalked up 15 UK Top 10 singles, inlcuding Our House, It Must Be Love, One Step Beyond, My Girl and Baggy Trousers.

They have continued their success over the last couple of years with an appearance on Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2016 and the release of their 11th studio album, Can’t Touch Us Now.

On July 5 multi-national classical vocal group Ill Dilvo will also be performing at Euston.

Tickets for Madness are priced at £37.50 will go on general sale at 9am on Friday from Ticket Master. 
Fans can also sign up for exclusive pre-sale tickets which are released 24 hours earlier.
