Pete Tong, Madness and more in store for summer concerts
Enjoy a flutter on the horses followed by an evening of top live music at Newmarket Nights, which returns to the town’s racecourse this summer. Combining thrilling racing and A-list artists, who perform to the crowd as dusk falls, this series of concerts runs from June to August and will feature stars including Pete Tong and Rudimental for its 2019 outing.
Up first, on 21 June, are Madness, one of Britain’s most treasured bands. Blending ska, reggae and pop, Suggs and co have delivered historic performances at events including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert and at the London 2012 Olympic Games closing ceremony.
Next up, on 19 July, it’s the turn of Thriller Live, the West End smash hit that has now been seen by more than five million fans across the globe. The show takes you on an electrifying visual and audio journey through Michael Jackson’s staggering musical career, paying homage to his live performances, innovative dance moves and revisiting hits including I Want You Back, ABC, Smooth Criminal, Bad, Thriller and many more.
Rudimental, the genre-defying, Brit Award-winning band who burst onto the scene in 2013 with their debut album Home, will take to the stage on 26 July. Then, on 2 August, it’s over to dance music pioneer Pete Tong for a night of Ibiza classics, with live accompaniment provided by the Heritage Orchestra.
