Cardiff Castle

British pop giants Madness return to Cardiff Castle next summer, for another huge headline show on Thursday 18th July!

Madness are an English ska and pop band from Camden Town, north London, who formed in 1976. One of the most prominent bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s two-tone ska revival, they continue to perform with six of the seven members of their original line-up. Madness's most successful period was from 1980 to 1986, when the band's songs spent a total of 214 weeks on the UK Singles Chart. (UB40shared the same number of weeks, the largest for any British group in the decade, but over a longer period.)
