Nutty boy legends Madness continue one of their busiest years in ages with 'The Liberty Of Norton Folgate' UK tour in December.

This will be the first UK tour for the album. Throughout the summer the band have toured Europe playing festival sets to massive crowds. When Oasis split at the Rock An Seine Festival last week it was Madness that the promoters turned to in order to keep the crowd happy.

Prior to the dates Madness release two albums. The first, 'Total Madness', a comprehensive compilation of their finest moments through three decades of pop, is out on September 21st with a second disc featuring the classic music videos whilst October 26th sees a very special re issue of the band's debut 'One Step Beyond' with a second disc of rare and unreleased tracks from the band's formative years and the album era.

Madness' tour dates are as follows:

Tue 01 December Bournemouth International Centre, Bournemouth
Wed 02 December Brighton Centre, Brighton
Fri 04 December Plymouth Pavillions, Plymouth
Sat 05 December Cliffs Pavilion, Southend
Mon 07 December Oasis, Swindon
