I've decided not to buy a ticket for the O2 Arena gig Madness is doing at the end of the year, as I don't particularly want the hassle and expense of going to London for it. I just hope it won't be their only UK gig this year - the language announcing it seems deliberately ambiguous: "The only planned gig in December." The past couple of years they have done a UK tour in December.


First time I saw Madness was at a gig in 1978, when the bill also included Rockpile, Squeeze, UB40, Elvis Costello and the Selector, with John Cooper Clarke as emcee. Quite a night.
