Ska-pop legends Madness are set to deliver a special live performance at Kirkstall Abbey next summer, accompanied by very special guests, The Zutons. This outdoor show will take place in the picturesque grounds of the Cistercian ruins at Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds.

Known for their infectious blend of ska, pop, and new wave, Madness will showcase their timeless catalogue of hits, including massive hits like “Our House,” “Baggy Trousers,” and “One Step Beyond.”

With a career spanning several decades, Madness remain one of the most beloved and influential bands in British music history. Their recent thirteenth album, Theatre of The Absurd Presents C’Est La Vie, which topped the charts, reaffirms their prowess in creating catchy, timeless hits.
