MCFLY HEADLINE ‘SUMMER SATURDAY LIVE’ ON THE JULY COURSE

MCFLY WHO PROVED TO BE SUCH A HIT AT NEWMARKET RACECOURSES LAST SUMMER ARE RETURNING AGAIN IN 2013 FOR ‘SUMMER SATURDAY LIVE’.

 

They will be in concert after the final horse race of the summer is run on the picturesque July Course on Saturday 24 August.

Tickets are now on sale, to book online click here or call 0844 579 3010 – and music and horse racing fans alike are being urged to book their places as soon as possible.

McFly, who celebrate their tenth anniversary in 2013 and have sold more than ten million records worldwide, are Tom Fletcher (lead vocals, guitar and piano), Danny Jones (lead vocals and guitar), Dougie Poynter (backing vocals and bass guitar) and Harry Judd (drums). Harry, who was the winner of Strictly Come Dancing two years ago, has said that the band love playing open air concerts at racecourses because of the great atmosphere. Last year at Newmarket Racecourses the band bumped into former champion jockey Willie Carson who was with Dougie in I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here in 2011.

The band’s next album is also due out this summer.

Amy Starkey, regional director of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: "McFly were fantastic when they played on the July Course last year so we are delighted that they are coming back this August. McFly are a hugely popular band and our spectators will love them when they bring their infectious music to the racecourse. It will be an occasion not to be missed." 'Summer Saturday Live' is in addition to the renowned Adnams Newmarket Nights at Newmarket Racecourses. As well as the 'Nights' with Madness (19 July) and the Kaiser Chiefs (2 August), there are five other concerts at the July Course on Friday evenings over the summer – 21 and 28 June, 26 July, and 9 and 16 August. The five remaining artists will be announced in coming weeks.
