SUGGS – singer of Madness – Touring ‘My Life Story’ through Australia
“I’d just turned 50, the kids had left home, and my cat had just died.”
In Suggs: My Life Story the Madness frontman takes to the stage in a hilarious, yet moving, one-man tour de force playing to rave reviews.
The death of Suggs’ beloved cat on his 50th birthday triggers 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 1970s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of 18.
Is it a play? Is it stand up comedy? Is it Music Hall? Whatever it is, hold on to your seats as Suggs goes on to stumble and plummet through the trap door of failure, then trampoline back up to catch the passing trapeze of show business success!
