The first confirmed Newmarket Nights concert for 2019 promises to be a real Thriller for fans of Michael Jackson.

The Jockey Club Live presents Thriller Live at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday, July 19.

Following the success of The Jacksons in 2017, and Magic of Motown this summer, Newmarket Nights are bringing a musical tribute to the King of Pop to the July Course.

The two-hour concert revue will be the first time a West End production has graced the Newmarket Nights stage.

Amy Starkey, regional director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “Newmarket Racecourses is delighted to announce Thriller Live as our first music performance in 2019.

“This is the very first time we have welcomed a hit musical to our stage, and after the success of Magic of Motown this summer, we believe Thriller Live is going to be extremely popular.

“We also have a number of other exciting acts in the pipeline for Newmarket Nights in 2019 and we look forward to announcing these in the coming weeks.”
