Madness - The original Nutty Boys, back together with all their greatest hits, including 'Baggy Trousers' and 'It Must Be Love'. The band is Britain's most successful chart band in music history, having had 21 top-twenty singles in a seven year period from '78-'86, and many more since (over 30 in total). Madness went on in 2009 to further release their critically acclaimed studio album 'The Liberty of Norton Folgate'.
In September 2010, Madness were awarded the 'Idol award' at the Q Awards in London. Guitarist Chris Foreman, stated in his acceptance speech that Madness were recording a new album and having toured the UK throughout November and December 2010, their final show at London's Earl's Court saw Madness play a new song from the upcoming album.
In 2011, Madness launched the annual "House of Fun Weeknder," a three-day festival curated by the band in which they performed alongside a wealth of like-minded artists. During 2012, the band took part in high-profile performances that celebrated the best of British culture. They played from the top of Buckingham Palace at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee party and also appeared in the closing ceremony of the London Olympic Games. As 2012 drew to a close, Madness released a new album called Oui, Oui, Si, Si, Ja, Ja, Da, Da. The group returned in 2016 with their twelfth studio effort, Can't Touch Us Now.
