Madness have revealed the bands which will support them at their Northants County Cricket Ground gig next month.

By The Rivers and Northampton act the Bighead have both been added to the bill.

The Bighead, from New Duston, fuse reggae incorporating a righteous word-style that harks back to Bob Dylan.

September will see the release of their first Album with tours planned in Germany in November.

By The Rivers, who will be main support, have already supported Madness earlier this year. They combine reggae, ska, soul and rich vocal duets and a soaring brass section to create a catchy and energetic sound.

Northants Cricket Chief Executive David Smith said: “We are excited to welcome Madness to the County Ground in September for what I’m sure will be a superbly entertaining evening of live music, right here in the heart of Northampton.”

Madness headline the Wantage Road venue on Saturday, September 22.
