Madness and Rudimental will perform alongside one another at the Emirates Stadium later this year on March 12, in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK.



'An Evening with Suggs and friends' is to feature a set of performances from both of the groups, whilst hosted by Madness' lead vocalist who's determined to raise funds to fight the disease that took his sister-in-law's life.

Speaking ahead of the event, Suggs shared: "My wife Anne's sister, Alanah, was such a big part of our lives. She radiated the most extraordinary, non-judgmental joy everywhere she went.

"She is no longer here. Her illness and death from pancreatic cancer came as a huge shock to us all and at her wake we vowed to do something to help research into pancreatic cancer. I am delighted to be an Ambassador for Pancreatic Cancer UK and will do all I can to support the charity.

"For the third consecutive year 'An evening with Suggs and friends' organised by the Gig Company will take place in Alanah's memory."

Meanwhile, Rudimental are looking forward to the event and appearing alongside their heroes whilst raising money for a worthy cause.

"It's an honour to be asked to be a part of The Gig Company's 'An Evening With Suggs and Friends' and to play alongside Madness, they are such heroes!

"It's an incredible cause, raising money for Pancreatic Cancer UK. We are pleased to be a part of this event to help raise awareness. It's going to be an amazing night and we're really looking forward to it!"
