MUSIC greats Madness will headline an open-air concert being planned for Fratton Park.

The Nutty Boys, world-famous for hits Our House, Baggy Trousers, It Must Be Love and House of Fun, will play at Fratton Park on Saturday, June 6 as part of a national ‘Grandslam’ tour of stadiums and racecourses.

It’s thought about 13,500 music fans could go to the show.

The stage will be set up at the Milton End, the ground itself will be standing room and the Fratton End will be open for seating.

Tickets will cost £35 and there will be a family ticket for £99.

The ground will open at 4pm and Madness will take to the stage about 8.45pm, after three or four supporting acts who are yet to be confirmed.

Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday.
