“Touring for years on end is what drains the lifeblood out of a lot of acts that I see,” says frontman, Suggs, “so each tour we do we try and make unique – and special.

“We can change the set-list nightly if we wish, the main thing is to keep it exciting for yourself, that’s the way to ensure the audience is kept excited too.

“Racecourses are great we’ve played a few in the past where there have been a few races and then you get a bit of Madness. It’s an unbeatable combination.

“I have a few flutters every now and then and have a bit of luck on the horses.”

Concert goers can also enjoy a day of racing before Madness take to the stage with gates opening at 2.30pm, and the first race taking place at 4.30pm. 

Tickets for the Madness Wolverhampton Racecourse show on Friday August 30 cost £35 per adult and £25 per child. Call the Box Office on:  0844 249 1000 or visit: www.vmstickets.co.uk.
