Madness have announced a winter tour of the UK.

Following a series of festival performances, the 80s Ska band will once again be picking up their electric guitars and saxophones to appear at a range of venues.

Brighton, Plymouth, Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow are among the cities that will be welcoming the band.

Madness formed almost 30 years ago, but are still enjoying success with a large live following and had a recent top ten album with their latest offering Liberty of Norton Folgate.

Two new LPs are set for release, including Total Madness, a compilation of the group's best songs in their three decades of performing.

Meanwhile, they also plan on re-releasing their debut album One Step Beyond, which is set to include a second disc of rare and unreleased tracks.

There is also speculation regarding a possible Christmas single to rival the release of the X Factor winner's song, as well as a potential collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys, according to the Daily Star.
