Texas to play Newmarket

The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are pleased to reveal the final artist for the 2017 Newmarket Nights season. Completing the line-up, TEXAS will be headlining on 28th July.

Fronted by Sharleen Spiteri, TEXAS are one of Britain’s best-loved bands. Over their 30 years, they have sold 35 million records, had 3 number one albums, 7 top ten albums and 13 top ten singles including hits ‘Say What You Want’, ‘Black Eyed Boy’, ‘Summer Son’ and ‘Inner Smile’. Recently releasing their 9th studio album ‘Jump On Board’, the album saw the band catapulted back into the top 10 once again.

Texas said:

‘We are really excited to headline Newmarket Racecourses on July 28th, it’s going to be fun night’

Amy Starkey, Regional Director, Jockey Club Racecourses East Region, said;

‘We are pleased to announce Texas as our final act to complete the line-up of music events at Newmarket Racecourses this summer.  We look forward to welcoming Texas back to the Adnams July Course for the first time since 2011 on Friday, 28th July for what will no doubt be a fantastic evening of racing and musical entertainment.’
