Ticket Gig Of The Week

 

Even if it hadn't been a good night out (it was) this would have been gig of the week simply because it was virtually the only live music event of recent days.

The 02 was nowhere near full, yet Madness offered a characteristically professional, technically excellent, hit-laden show to a crowd made up of punters of almost every age - parents and children, fiftysomethings and twentynothings.
