4th October 2016

Though it’s been some years that MADNESS has released some new material the band is busily touring in 2016. Unfortunately there are only two concerts taking place in Germany. Together with THE SPECIALS the band was one of the most important representatives of the Ska genre back in the eighties. Unmistakable is the witty playfulness and the fulminant mixture of Ska, Punk, Pop, also called the “Nutty sound” by the band.

The London based band had its first shows in 1977 under the moniker THE INVADERS but renamed to MADNESS in 1979 The debut album ‘One step beyond’ was more than one year in the British charts. Until the first split up in 1986 MADNESS launched 6 studio albums and the first 20 singles made it all into the top 20 of the British charts. After a failed reunion in 1988 the band then came back together in 1992 though with some changes in band members. With its “Nutty sound”, the six piece band ensures that the feet of the audience won’t stop dancing during the show.
