HAVING recently performed live at BBC Television Centre’s farewell concert outside the iconic London building with Madness, singer Suggs will be appearing in St Albans this week.

The Madness frontman takes to the Alban Arena stage tomorrow (Thursday) night in a hilarious, yet moving, one-man tour de force.

Playing to rave reviews, Suggs My Life Story In Words & Music isn’t what you’d normally expect from the singer, famous for hits such as House of Fun, Our House, Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love and One Step Beyond with the 2 Tone ska revival legends.

The death of Suggs’ beloved cat on his 50th birthday triggers a personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew.

Stunned by what he discovers, Suggs is taken back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of 18.

Hold on to your seats as Suggs goes on to stumble and plummet through the trapdoor of failure. Then trampolines back up to catch the passing trapeze of show-business success!

With musical accompaniment and uncalled for interjection from Deano, his loyal manservant-cum pianist, this is an enjoyable evening with the chart star.

Tickets cost £24.50. Call the Alban Arena box office on 01727 844488 or book online at
