After a year of thinking about the alternative career opportunities they still saw for themselves, the gods of British pop have Madness finally decided to rebuild themselves and do what they do best – put on a fantastic live show.
The Live Online Show “The Get Up!” is produced by Driift, the company behind the unforgettable online productions of Nick Cave, Niall Horan and Kylie Minogue. “Get up! is written by Charlie Higson and brings Madness back to their element. “Get up! is a one-off event and will air on May 14 in Europe and America (May 15 in Australia, New Zealand and Asia) and can only be seen live.
“Get up! begins in the deserted and grassy streets of Soho as the ghostly figure of Victor Marley, played by Charlie Higson, Suggs, Mark, Chrissy Boy, Mike, Lee and Woody, welcome you to the famous abandoned London Palladium. A hilarious and dizzying journey begins when our Nutty Boys embark on a live show in what they say is an empty theater. They maneuver through time and space and between the abandoned theater where ghosts from the past roam, the haunted backstage corridors, the bars and locker rooms of the Palladium, and Mike’s Mum’s main room in Kentish Town in 1977. “The Get Up! ” is unmatched in its ambition and Madness manages to bring music and entertainment to the whole family.
In addition to a live show filled with hits from their huge back catalog, ‘The Get Up!’ also an opportunity for fans to hear new songs from Madness for the first time. Madness will be joined on stage by very special guests, including some of the biggest names in the music scene (and Mike Barson as Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II). It promises to be a goodbye to foreclosure and allows Madness to relive the good times in a way they can’t.
The iconic hit “Our House” has never faded into obscurity since it became a worldwide hit in 1982. In fact, it’s quite conceivable that it has gained new relevance to many people in the world. over the past hectic year. The original video for ‘Our House’, which was filmed in the glamorous Willesden Junction location in north London, has been painstakingly restored from the original 16mm film from 1982. This new 4K version brings the iconic video to life – now you can even read the newspapers the boys keep.
For the first time in nearly 40 years, the original 16mm film was transferred to a 4k digital file using the latest 21st century techniques, then manually cleaned to remove dirt and other visual “noise”. To top it off, the audio has also been updated from the best available audio source. All of that hard work makes it the best version of the video ever to be released!
The song will also be played on May 14 and you know what? You can be there (virtually), in full festival style!
