BAGGY trousers at the ready – British pop legends Madness are set to perform in Bishopston at the end of this summer.

Back on the road after their sell-out 2014 tour, the 'Our House' singers will be taking to the stage at the Bristol County Ground on September 12.

The ska band has declared their concert as part of the “UK's biggest open air tour ever”.

They said: “Come see, come see! The world’s strongest band perform incredible feats live! Marvel as Madness lift an enormous set of polished pop songs high in the air, single handed! Rolling into a town near you, soon.”

From May to September, Madness will perform 19 shows at some of the greatest sporting venues around the country, including racecourses, cricket grounds, rugby and football stadiums.

“House of Fun”, “Baggy Trousers” and “My Girl” are just a few of the iconic tunes Madness will be performing on their 'Grandslam Madness' tour, plus some of their new songs.

Gloucestershire County Cricket’s chief executive, Will Brown said: “We are delighted to be hosting Madness at the Bristol County Ground.

“This will be the first concert at the ground since 2009 and we anticipate a sell-out crowd.

“It’s wonderful to be bringing live music to Bristol on this scale and we hope that this event will firmly secure the Bristol County Ground as a premier destination for music as well as cricket.”
