Suggs, The Anvil, Basingstoke

JOIN The Madness frontman Suggs as he brings his new show to the The Anvil on Wednesday, 7 February. Due to popular demand after his first smash hit, one man show, My Life Story, Suggs is treading the boards again. If the first show was about how on earth he got there, the second is about the surprises that awaited him when he did.

Vertigo on the roof of Buckingham Palace. Nearly blowing the closing ceremony of the Olympics. Watching his underpants fall to earth on Bowie’s driveway. Things have gone a smidge surreal since the Madness frontman was a twelve-year-old in shorts in north London.

He is constantly expecting that inevitable tap on the shoulder to hear “what are you doing here, sunshine?’” or “how have I got this far?” he asks himself. “In this business you can be washed up at any minute. How have I managed to get away with it for so long?”

Tickets for the show which start at 7.30pm are priced at £30.50 which includes a £2 booking fee.
