Prince Buster & Madness Sing Madness; LA, SF, SD Shows Announced

Want to see the artist that inspired one of the biggest bands in the world step out on stage to sing the song that originally inspired the band and gave the band their now world famous name? Yeah I thought you might.

Madness April 16th @ Club NokiaJust a fun little video from Madness but the real news is Goldenvoice just announced a Los Angeles show at the Nokia Theater on Monday April 16th for the band! This follows other already announced shows including stops in Las Vegas, San Diego and San Francisco book-ended by their performances at the Coachella Festival on April 13th and 20th.

This is sure to start a riot! People have been asking about an LA show ever since the big C shows were announced. The last time Madness came through town on such a trip they were playing the Inland Invasion fest and held a secret show at the Troubadour which was SO amazing. I was able to get tickets to the show and it was by far one of the greatest shows I have ever been to. Seeing this band that plays stadiums on such a small stage was mind blowing.

Tickets for the Nokia show go on sale this Thursday March 8 at 10:00AM. Follow Goldenvoice on Twitter for more announcements.

Will there be more dates announced? Possibly but I doubt it. They’ve pretty much covered all the markets available. Maybe it LA sells out fast they could add another on the 18 or 15 still right. Either way I doubt I’ll get to see em this time around as I’ll be out on tour with the Echoes of Kingston tour featuring the Skatalites. Bummer right? Tough life. Madness Vs. The Skatalites. Sure wish I could figure out someway to get them together. Imagine that right!!

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
