Rock and pop group, Tears for Fears will take to the stage at Newmarket Nights this month.

The platinum-selling album duo – Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith – will appear at the Adnams July Course armed with hits like Shout, Head Over Heels and, of course, Everybody Wants to Rule the World.

Teaming up with organisers, The Hunts Post has two pairs of tickets to give away, and the band even promises to play a collection of brand new songs.

The duo shot to fame after the release of their debut album, The Hurting, in 1983, which featured a staggering three top five singles – Change, Pale Shelter, and Mad World.

The band said: “We are very excited to be headlining at the Newmarket Racecourse. The band will be playing an action-packed set filled with classic hits and new songs that we will be playing for first time in the UK. We cannot wait to share this amazing day with fans, old and new.”

“This will be the first time Tears for Fears will have played at the Adnams July Course and I am sure they will draw in a great crowd, said Amy Starkey, the regional director (east) of Jockey Club Racecourses.
