The venue will also host a night of comedy on March 22, featuring Joel Dommett, Rob Beckett, Rosie Jones, Romesh Ranganathan and more.
Elsewhere, Madness are set to throw an “all-day party” in London to coincide with the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend in June.
The group shared a tongue-in-cheek video on Instagram that showed frontman Suggs being knighted by a Queen lookalike and features references to Game Of Thrones
In November, it was announced that Madness would be headlining Tramlines festival alongside Sam Fender and Kasabian.
The band are also due to play Edinburgh’s new pop up venue The Big Top on June 12, with Biffy Clyro, Fatboy Slim and Snow Patrol playing subsequent dates.
Their last run of live shows was last winter’s ‘Ladykillers’ tour, which featured special guests Squeeze.
