Madness 2023 live dates

Following on from sold-out Forest Live 2022 performances, Madness have announced dates for 2023 as part of the annual concert series presented by Forestry England.

Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that introduces forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over two million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last 22 years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation’s forests when buying a ticket. 

Going to a concert helps Forestry England create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees. Last year they planted some 6.8 million trees, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests sustainably and welcoming 363 million visits annually.

Creating their trademark ‘nutty’ sound, Madness became the UK’s consummate singles group with a huge haul of hits such as One Step Beyond, My Girl, Baggy Trousers, Embarrassment, It Must Be Love, House Of Fun, Driving In My Car, Our House and Wings Of A Dove.

A career spanning over four decades in the business is a testament to the band’s enduring popularity as music makers, their legendary live shows satiating the appetite of the steadfast ‘Madheads’ fanbase.

The band are currently in the studio recording their first new album in six years.
