Madness played in Limerick in 1985 at The Savoy Theatre, expect huge interest in the region for one of pop’s most loved and revered party bands. The band played an outstanding show at Central Hall Westminster, London on New Year’s Eve 2018 which was broadcast live on BBC.

Speaking at today’s announcement concert promoter Mick Dolan said:
“Securing Madness to play Live at the Docklands in our first year is a real coup. The band achieved massive success in the mid-1980s spending 214 weeks in the UK singles charts over the course of that decade. This is a band that never fails to raise the roof and we are certain that audiences from Limerick and further afield will have the time of their lives on the June Bank Holiday weekend”.

Madness will play Live at the Docklands on Friday May 31. Tickets for Madness Live at the Docklands in Limerick will go on sale this Friday 22. for details
