Fresh off the road from their sell out 2014 arena tour, Madness are now set to start the UK’s Greatest Outdoor Tour Ever at Lincoln City FC’s Sincil Bank Stadium on Friday May 29.

The tour, which runs from May to September 2015 will take in 19 shows at some of the greatest sporting venues around the country, including racecourses, cricket grounds, rugby and football stadiums.

The show is billed to offer the concertgoer the unique experience of an outdoor event with a festival vibe, set within iconic huge green spaces and sporting venues.

Last seen performing locally two years ago in Newark, Madness will be performing some of their 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. 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.”
