Ska band Madness will be performing here on Friday 25 September, live after an evening race meeting, as part of their Grandslam tour.
Our Managing Director, David Roberts, said “I am delighted we will be welcoming Madness to the racecourse later this year. Madness will be the biggest act to perform at the racecourse, and this serves as testament to how successful previous live music evenings have been for Wolverhampton Racecourse and the wider Arena Racing Company group.”
Best known for chart topping hits such as “Baggy Trousers”, “House of Fun”, “One Step Beyond” and “It Must Be Love”, to name but a few, Madness have achieved international recognition as one of the greatest Ska bands of all time.
Since their rise to prominence in the early 1980’s, Madness, lead always by ‘Suggs’, have sold out arenas, headlined festivals and picked up an array of top musical accolades. The band has achieved fifteen UK top ten singles and two UK number one albums.
Most recently the band released the “One Step Beyond – 35th Anniversary” album and will be touring the country throughout 2015.
The concert will take place after racing on Friday 25 September in the Centre Course. Anyone purchasing a ticket will get to enjoy a full race meeting followed by the concert.
