Lincs: Grand slam night out with ska legends Madness


Fresh off the road from their sell-out 2014 arena tour, ska legends Madness are now set to start the UK’s Greatest Outdoor Tour Ever at Lincoln City’s Sincil Bank stadium at the end of May.

Grandslam Madness runs from May to September and will take in 19 shows at sporting venues around the country, including racecourses, cricket grounds, rugby and football stadiums.

“Come see, come see, the world’s strongest band perform incredible feats live,” enthused a band spokesman.

“Marvel as Madness lift an enormous set of polished pop songs high in the air, single-handed.”

“It’s the UK’s biggest open-air tour ever and it’s rolling into a town near you, soon.”

Madness will be performing inimitable quirky pop classics such as House of Fun, Baggy Trousers and My Girl, iconic songs that are guaranteed to draw you in, get you dancing and singing along.

The band will also be performing some of their new songs, their first new recordings in three years.

A spokesman for Lincoln City FC said “It’s a privilege that Madness have decided to kick off their Grandslam Madness Tour at Sincil Bank Stadium, Lincolnshire’s number one sporting venue.”

“We are expecting a bumper turn out and anticipate that this event will put the historic city of Lincoln firmly on the map as a premier city for live entertainment.”

“Madness are the band of the people, who inject fun into everything they do and this tour promises to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the greatest bands in the world play Sincil Bank.”
