Pop on your Baggy Trousers and get ready to enter the House of Fun, as ’80s chart toppers Madness are coming to the UAE.

The British ska act, who made a name for themselves with hits such as Our House and It Must Be Love, will perform at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on October 6.

The band formed in the late 1970s, and went on to score 15 UK top 10 singles.

All together, Madness spent 214 weeks on the UK singles charts over a decade, making them one of the most successful bands of the Eighties (tied with UB40).

The band originally split in 1986, however reformed for reunion concerts throughout the ’90s.

Our House, a musical based on Madness songs, ran in London in the early Noughties, and the band have recently announced the imminent arrival of their first album in years. Can’t Touch Us Now will be released just after their Dubai gig, but they’ll be performing tracks from it on the night, as well as plenty of their ’80s hits.

Tickets for the UAE show are available from platinumlist.net, theirishvillage.com, ticket-line.ae, ticket.virginmegastore.me, and tixbox.com, and cost Dhs250 for seats, and Dhs300 for standing room.
