Madness join the line-up at Haydock Park in summer 2022

Press Release 13th December 2021

By The Jockey Club Live

The Jockey Club Live are thrilled to reveal MADNESS will return to Haydock Park Racecourse on Saturday 16th July. Having last headlined in 2015, the iconic band join a stellar line-up of musical greats, featuring previously announced Paloma Faith and Olly Murs headlining 1st July and 5th August respectively.

Combining the genres of Ska, Reggae, Motown, Rock’n’Roll and Classic Pop, MADNESS have become one of the music industry’s best loved British bands. Fronted by the charismatic Suggs, Madness’ ability to write songs that sparkle with the stuff of British life, that find poetry in everyday reality, has led them to have many hits including ‘Baggy Trousers’, ‘It Must Be Love’, ‘Driving In My Car’, ‘Our House’ and the 1982 #1 ‘House of Fun’. They are songs that have left their mark on British pop culture; their spirit endures in the music of Blur, The Streets, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys and many more. 

Dickon White, Jockey Club Racecourses’ North West Regional Director said

“We are so excited about our fantastic line-up of music nights in 2022. With the addition of Madness to the season, we have something for everyone for what is set to be a wonderful summer of music and racing at Haydock Park.”

Madness said

"We had an amazing time at Haydock Park in 2015 and can’t wait to return 7 years later. Our fans in the North West always know how to have a great time and we can’t wait to join them for an amazing night next summer. See you all there!”

2021 saw a season of incredible live shows at The Jockey Club racecourses, ranging from a sold-out show for Tom Jones at Haydock Park to an afternoon of joyful singalongs with McFly at Newmarket Racecourses. Despite the challenges of staging a season in 2021, the events marked the return to live music for thousands of fans. The Jockey Club Live events continue to be renowned for combining an electric evening at the races with a spectacular evening concert in an informal and relaxed open-air setting.
