THE pitch has been covered and the stage has been built in readiness for this weekend’s concert by ska legends Madness.

The final preparations are being made for tomorrow’s near sell-out show, which will see 13,000 fans at Fratton Park.

Anna Mitchell, head of sponsorship and commercial partnership at the club, said: ‘It’s transforming from a football stadium into a music stadium.

‘It’s going to be a really special occasion. The fans will be on what is normally the pitch and will be so close to the stage. It will be good for the city and I hope the local community will benefit too.’

Doors open at 4pm.
