MADNESS will turn Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena into a House Of Fun this month and you could have a fun night out on us - we’ve got TEN free tickets to be won, writes Graham Walker.

It really would be Madness not to try to win a pair.

The legendary and much loved British band are on their biggest UK arena tour, taking in 13 cities and stopping off in Sheffield on Tuesday, December 11.

The tour will see Madness play all the hits and fan favourites, while showcasing new tracks from their new and 10th studio album, Oui Oui Si Si Ja Ja Da Da, released at the end of October.

Among their biggest hits - with front man Graham “Suggs” McPherson in charge of the vocals - are classic pop tracks One Step Beyond, My Girl, Baggy Trousers, Shut Up, It Must Be Love, Cardiac Arrest, Driving in My Car, Our House, Tomorrow’s (Just Another Day), Wings of a Dove and chart-topper House of Fun.

Their new album, with artwork by legendary British artist Sir Peter Blake, entered the charts at number 10 and is a follow up to their critically acclaimed 2009 release The Liberty Of Norton Folgate

It sees the band team up with a number of new producers, the first time in their illustrious career they have decided to do so.

Fans were given a taste with track Death Of A Rude Boy, which was made available as a free download from their official site in August.

London’s Man Like Me will join Madness on the arena tour.
