Madness - Madness Honoured To Play Jubilee Concert

Madness are honoured to be playing the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert.

The 'One Step Beyond' group are part of the line up for a huge concert celebrating 60 years of the British monarch's reign, held at Buckingham Palace on June 4, and frontman Suggs is delighted to be involved.

He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''Well, the queen phoned us up and...no, she didn't really.

''Her private secretary wrote us a letter, and we were very happy to do it. Yeah, I like the queen, and I'm very pleased to be playing at her party.''

The 'Baggy Trousers' singer will be performing alongside other British talent such as classic artists like Paul McCartney and Elton John and more contemporary stars such as Jessie J and JLS.

Commenting on the line up, Suggs - real name Graham Mcpherson - added: ''I think there's lots of good things going on. I think there's lots of great new bands around, yeah I mean, there's a very vibrant music scene in Britain at the moment.''

Take That singer Gary Barlow is organising the concert, and while Suggs is a fan of his singing, he's not so excited by Gary's other job as a judge on 'The X Factor'.

He said: ''I don't watch it myself. It's entertaining television but I don't think it really means anything.''

Suggs is the ambassador of the new Camden Town iPhone App - Suggs will feature as virtual guide, taking visitors on a tour of the area, showing them the best music and entertainment venues. To download the app for free visit the iTunes store and search for 'Camden.'
