Opening Gala with Madness in concert, 21st May 2016

'Suggs' and saxophonist Lee Thompson on stage on the Pier. Suggs' the Madness lead singer was born in Hastings and said "Going on the Pier was always a really happy time... It's a privilege to be involved. I can't really say I had a hand in building it but at least I can say I was involved."

The glittering event was filled with music, activities and entertainment celebrating the Pier’s heritage, culminating in a very special finale headlined by Madness! The concert marked a day of celebrations for the official reopening of the so-called “People’s Pier”. Tickets for the event sold out within 90 minutes of going on-sale earlier in the year.
