Madness Announce Arena Tour

[b]Madness[/b] have announced that they will play a UK Arena tour called '[b]Transport From London[/b]' this December.

The North London nutty boys will kick of their seven night tour at [b]Aberdeen[/b]'s P&J Arena on December 6 and wind up at London's O2 Arena just over a week later on December 14.

Madness have also speculated that they are to play an unannounced set on the main stage of a 'major UK festival' - internet rumours say this is likely to be this weekend's [b]Bestival[/b] on the Isle Of Wight.

Madness played a 'secret' in the Lost Vagueness field at this year's [b]Glastonbury[/b] - causing the site to go into lockdown around the field. To see a clip of 'Baggy Trousers' from that manic show, click here.

Aberdeen P&J Arena (December 6)
