Global superstar Demi Lovato kicked off the 2018 live music season on the Adnams July Course, bringing her Tell Me You Love Me world tour to the Summer Saturday Live stage at Newmarket Racecourse on Saturday.

Named after her acclaimed sixth studio album, the former Disney star and X Factor judge is about to begin the UK leg of her tour, having just played to sold-out arenas across the US.

The Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum singer and songwriter released her sixth studio album Tell Me You Love Me last year, with lead single Sorry Not Sorry quickly being certified double-platinum. She performed an energetic set which showcased her powerful vocals, featuring massive hits including Heart Attack, Confident, Cool For The Summer, Give Your Heart A Break, Skyscraper and Solo.

It was a busy day for Demi as earlier in the afternoon she had performed alongside Clean Bandit at Wembley Stadium as part of the Summertime Ball, before heading up to Newmarket by helicopter for her show.

The light rain that started to fall towards the end of her set did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the large crowd, with young and old mixing to enjoy another memorable afternoon at the home of racing.

It was the first in a series of high profile post racing concerts at the track over the Summer, which includes the likes of Paloma Faith, James Blunt, Craig David, Plan B, The Magic of Motown, Nile Rodgers, George Ezra and The Vamps.
