Your second Sandown Park headliner is...

Press Release 27th November 2023

By The Jockey Club Live

After scoring their first studio UK Official Charts No.1 album, Theatre Of The Absurd Presents C’est La Vie on Friday, one of the biggest and most loved British bands MADNESS will be returning to Sandown Park Racecourse on Wednesday 31st July 2024.

As well as performing tracks from their brand-new album, Madness will also perform some of their greatest hits from a career spanning over four decades. 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 ‘House of Fun’.

Throughout their career, Madness have had one UK Official Charts No.1 album, 10 UK top ten albums, 15 top ten singles and have won a multitude of awards including a prestigious Ivor Novello. They’ve performed on the top of Buckingham Palace as part of the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations and set the record for the biggest ever audience for the BBC’s Live New Year’s Eve Broadcast - the most watched TV music event of 2018.

Sarah Drabwell, General Manager, Sandown Park Racecourse, said

“It’s been five years since Madness last took centre stage at the racecourse and we’re excited to be welcoming them back in July. A timeless headliner whose music resonates across generations, this will surely be a show not to be missed!”

Madness said

“Our 2024 summer tour is going to be a true celebration and we’re delighted to be returning to Sandown Park on the C’est La Vie tour! We’ll be playing a set filled with all our favourite tracks plus a few from our new album – we can’t wait to see you all there!”
