Friday 12th July - Madness - Support Announced

Madness – one of the most successful British bands of all time – will perform outdoors in the heart of Vivary Park on Friday 12th July.

Joining them for the evening is the infamous rock band, Lightning Seeds, fronted by Ian Broudie. It will be one of just a handful of live shows for the band this year, as it marks the 25th anniversary of its Jollification album, which featured hits including Change, Lucky You, Marvellous and Perfect. Its fourth album, Dizzy Heights also secured success for the band, but it was its single Three Lions, a collaboration with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, which was its first number one hit, reaching the top spot in 1996, 1998 and more recently, in 2018.

Speaking about the show, Ian Broudie, who is currently writing new music for Lightning Seeds, said:

“Performing outdoors always gives the show a brilliant atmosphere, so we can’t wait to get to Vivary Park in July, and open for the legendary Madness.”

Also performing is the Grammy nominated and two-time Ivor Novello award-winning lyricist, Chris Difford. He will open the show ahead of Lightning Seeds, performing a catalogue of hits, such as Cool For Cars, Up the Junction and Tempted, from his time as the founding member of Squeeze.

Saturday 13th July - Bananarama plus Guests

Eighties pop sensation Bananarama will be the headliner at Live in Somerset on Saturday 13th July 2019. The duo, made up of Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward, is the most successful female band worldwide, with the most charting singles, including Venus and Love in the First Degree.

Bananarama will be joined on the Saturday night by a number of special guests, all of whom had chart success in the 1980s and 1990s. Heartthrob Jason Donovan; Hazell Dean who scored a succession of massive club and dance hits; the glam rock band, Doctor and the Medics, which topped the charts with Spirit in the Sky; and one of Britain’s best loved reggae bands, Aswad, join the line-up.

It will be an electric atmosphere in Vivary Park on Saturday 13th July 2019, with concert-goers dancing to some of the most iconic hits from the ‘80s and ‘90s, as the artists take to the stage.

Carlie Davidson of LCC Live, said: 

“Live in Somerset with Bananarama and their special guests will be an amazing night of 80s and 90s music. We expect there to be an incredible atmosphere in Vivary Park.”
