Madness front-man Graham McPherson brings his show Suggs: My Life Story to King’s Hall, Ilkley on Monday 25 April. Tickets have nearly sold out for this hilarious, yet moving, one-man tour de force, which has played to rave reviews.
The death of Suggs’ beloved cat on his fiftieth birthday triggered a personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew. Stunned by what he learns Suggs is taken back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970’s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of eighteen.
Is it a play? Is it stand-up comedy? Is it Music Hall? Whatever it is, the audience should hold on to their seats as Suggs goes on to stumble and plummet through the trapdoor of failure – then trampolines back up to catch the passing trapeze of show business success!
The show includes musical accompaniment and interjection from Deano, his loyal manservant-cum-pianist.
The show takes place on Monday 25 April 2016, 7.30pm and tickets are priced at £30*
