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.

Tickets for the December Arena shows go onsale this Friday (September 7) at 9am.

Aberdeen P&J Arena (December 6)
