Madness announce rescheduled Westonbirt gig for 2021
By Matt Hall | 19th October 2020
Madness have announced dates as part of Forest Live 2021, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
The new dates follow the cancellation of their planned shows this year, forced by coronavirus restrictions.
Drawing on their musical roots in ska, Madness were responsible for some of the most credible pop compositions of their generation with the ability to write songs that sparkle with the spirit of British life.
Creating their trademark 'nutty' sound, they became the UK's consummate singles group with a huge haul of hits such as 'One Step Beyond', 'My Girl', 'Baggy Trousers', 'Embarrassment', 'Grey Day', 'House Of Fun', 'Driving In My Car', 'Our House' and 'Wings Of A Dove'.
Last year, Madness celebrated their 40th Anniversary, testament to the band's enduring popularity as music makers, with the loyal 'Madheads' fanbase always craving their legendary live shows.
Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. More than 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation's forests when buying a ticket.
Madness with special guests The Farm and guest support Emily Capell will appear at Westonbirt Arboretum near Tetbury on Saturday, June 12. Tickets go on sale this Friday, October 23.
