Rounding up a bumper month of announcements, The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses have revealed that The Corrs and Will Young will be joining the line-up of their Newmarket Nights season.
The Corrs will be the first act to perform at Newmarket Racecourse on June 17 and Will Young will take to the stage on June 24.
Since releasing their album Forgiven, Not Forgotten in 1996, The Corrs have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide. Known for hits including Runaway and Breathless, the band took a 10-year break to spend time with their families while Sharon and Andrea also pursued solo careers. They returned last year to a rapturous welcome, with their album White Light going straight into the UK charts, which saw the band catapulted back into the touring circuit with a sold-out arena tour.
Will Young’s debut single Evergreen/Anything Is Possible is included in the bestselling singles of all time in the UK, having sold more than 1.7million copies alone. His sixth studio album 85% Proof arrived at the top of the charts in 2015 (making it his fourth Number One album), and represents his most accomplished work to date, cementing his status as both a national icon and artistic powerhouse.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
“It is fantastic to have another two internationally acclaimed acts including the return of Will Young to the Adnams July Course as well as welcoming the Corrs for the first time.”
