Ska-pop legends Madness has announced a special performance in Leeds next summer as part of a new music series at the historic Kirkstall Abbey.

Renowned for their genre-defying blend of pop, ska, new wave and more, the Camden band will bring their seven-decade catalogue to the venue, promising an evening of “unparalleled entertainment and nostalgia”.

Known for their chart-topping hits such as One Step Beyond, Our House and Baggy Trousers, Madness is arguably one of the most influential bands in British music history, and recently released their self-produced 13th album Theatre of the Absurd Presents C’Est La Vie to critical acclaim.
