The Madsen rock band is wildly popular in Germany for their rock-pop music (about 109,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Madsenmusik).

Mad about German – Mad about Madsen
This is the motto of the 2011 concert tour of the German Indie rock band Madsen. From October 14th to November 18th Madsen will tour the United States. As part of the “do Deutsch” campaign, the Goethe-Institut organizes a four-week music tour with the German Indie rock band Madsen. As “ambassadors of the German language” the four-member band MADSEN will perform at 13 different venues between New York and San Francisco.
And Tucson is one of their 13 venues. This concert will be free and open to all. At 4:30 p.m. a steel band will perform as a warm-up. No reservations necessary (though you are most welcome and encouraged to practice your German beforehand).
