British pop giants Madness are the latest act heading to North Wales next summer for the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod.

The Nutty Boys, who scored their first studio UK Official Charts No.1 album, Theatre Of The Absurd Presents C’est La Vie on Friday, will bring their legendary live show to Llangollen Pavilion on Saturday July 13.

Madness have racked up 15 UK Top 10 singles – including the timeless Our House, It Must Be Love, One Step Beyond, My Girl, Wings Of A Dove and Baggy Trousers – together with 10 Top 10 albums.

And they are now celebrating hitting the number one spot with an album for the first time.

The pop greats, whose Llangollen date is part of a 19-date summer tour, 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 headlining show is the latest to be announced as part of a new partnership between Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod and Live Nation promoters Cuffe and Taylor.

Madness join indie heroes Kaiser Chiefs, Manic Street Preachers and Suede, BRIT award-winning artist Paloma Faith, chart-topper Jess Glynne and disco legends Nile Rodgers & CHIC among the artists to be announced so far for the iconic peace festival in 2024.

Lead Programmer & Production Manager of the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod Dave Danford said: “Madness are a band that we’ve long wanted to bring to North Wales. Our partnership with Cuffe and Taylor has made this happen, and bringing the Nutty Boys to town will continue the buzz around our festival of peace. With more announcements on the way, it’s clear that Llangollen will be the place to be next summer!”

Cuffe and Taylor co-founder Peter Taylor added: “As a live act Madness present the epitome of fun and they have this amazing ability to bring audiences together for your best night out.

“This will be a night to remember in the Llangollen Pavilion.”

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday December 1 from llangollen.net and www.ticketmaster.co.uk
