Global superstar DEMI LOVATO will bring her ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ world tour to the Summer Saturday Live stage at Newmarket Racecourses on Saturday, 9th June for her first ever UK racecourse show. Named after her acclaimed sixth studio album, the tour is currently playing to sold-out arenas across the US.
The Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum singer and songwriter released her sixth studio album ‘Tell Me You Love Me’ last year, with lead single ‘Sorry Not Sorry’ quickly being certified double-platinum. With a back catalogue featuring massive hits including ‘Heart Attack’, ‘Confident’, ‘Cool For The Summer’, ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ and timeless juggernaut ‘Skyscraper’, Demi has secured her place as being one of the most revered and respected vocalists of recent times.
Demi will be joining a summer line-up of some of the world’s best-known contemporary artists and iconic acts. Having brought the likes of Little Mix and previous Demi Lovato collaborator Olly Murs to the racecourse in 2017, The Jockey Club Live season this year looks set to continue the incredible success and their continued popularity for a unique summer afternoon.
With Craig David at Newmarket already sold out, many more shows are set to follow suit, including headliner George Ezra who most recently shot straight to the #1 spot on the Official UK Album Chart with sophomore album ‘Staying at Tamara’s’, knocking The Greatest Showman off the top after a staggering 11 weeks at the summit. He will headline Sandown Park Racecourse on 1st August, and Newmarket Nights on 17th August.
Open-air concerts from The Jockey Club Live offer a live music experience unlike any other. Alongside show-stopping headlining performances in the informal, relaxed and historic open-air settings of the courses, the action kicks off earlier in the day with a six race card – giving fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory.
Saf Chowdhury, Director of Concerts & Marketing – The Jockey Club Live said:
‘We are delighted to announce Demi Lovato as our Summer Saturday headliner on June 9th. Her achievements as a global star are second to none and the show will be something very special.’
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
‘We are delighted that Demi Lovato will be playing to our Summer Saturday Live audience at Newmarket Racecourses on 9th June. Demi has a huge following and she will appeal greatly to our family audience. It’s fantastic that her many fans will have the opportunity to see her perform here in Newmarket after an exciting day’s racing.’
