This will be the fourth time the artist has headlined Scarborough OAT – the UK’s biggest open-air theatre.

On Friday, July 12, Madness takes to the stage as part of a 19-date summer tour.

The music giants are no strangers to Scarborough, having headlined the venue in 2017 and 2019.

This time they will not only be bringing their legendary live show to the Yorkshire coast, but their first ever number one album.

The 13th studio album by pop’s Nutty Boys – Theatre Of The Absurd Presents C’est La Vie – debuted at the top spot in the UK Album Charts last Friday (November 24).

Madness said: "Would you Adam and Eve it?! It only took us 40 years to get there but we've just gone and ruddy scored our first number one album with Theatre Of The Absurd Presents C'est La Vie and we thought, what better way to celebrate than to announce a summer tour?!”

The band boasts 11 top 10 albums and 15 top 10 singles, including Our House, It Must Be Love, One Step Beyond, My Girl, Wings Of A Dove and Baggy Trousers.

Meanwhile, Becky Hill will perform in Scarborough on Thursday, August 29.

The singer has written chart-smashing dance-pop songs and is said to be a leading force in the UK music scene.
