UK ska legends Madness have been confirmed to play the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on Thursday October 6.
One of the UK's biggest bands in the 70s and 80s, Madness are a 7 piece band that formed in Camden, London and were part of the 2Tone Ska revival.
They were a huge band in the 1980s, spending over 214 weeks in the UK singles chart between 1980 and 1986, including 15 singles in the Top 10. They had only one No.1 during their career, but House of Fun is still a current radio favourite.
Led by gang leader Suggs, Madness are still a band in demand, with a new album due out at the end of this year coinciding with a world wide tour. The band shot back into prominence in 2012 when they performed at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, and then played at the closing Ceremony for the London Olympics.
Tickets for the show on October 6 are available from Platinumlist.net, with seated tickets AED250 and standing AED300.
