The Jockey Club LIVE presents JESS GLYNNE
AN OPEN AIR CONCERT AT NEWMARKET RACECOURSE, 26TH AUGUST 2017
Due to overwhelming demand for her sold out show in 2016, Newmarket Nights and The Jockey Club Live are delighted to welcome back JESS GLYNNE to the Adnans July Course this summer.
First coming into the public consciousness as the vocalist on Clean Bandit’s Grammy Award winning and #1 hit ‘Rather Be’; pop sensation Jess Glynne has since become one of the biggest UK breakthrough acts of recent years. Her number-one charting debut album, ‘I Cry When I Laugh‘, has turned double platinum in the UK, making it the highest selling debut album of the past year. Jess is also one of only two British female solo artists to have five consecutive UK number one singles. 2016 was a further massive year for Jess, with a sold-out UK arena tour under her belt plus she was nominated for British Breakthrough Act, British Female Solo Artist and British Single for ‘Hold My Hand’ at this year’s prestigious Brit Awards.
Jess Glynne said:
‘It’s going to be great fun playing Newmarket Racecourse on 26th August after the races. My show there in the summer was one of my highlights as the fans were so amazing; I cant wait to come back!’
The 2016 season welcomed acts including Little Mix, Tears For Fears, Mark Ronson and the Kaiser Chiefs to the Adnams July Course, collectively playing to over 100,000 fans.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said
“We are very excited to be welcoming Jess back to Newmarket Racecourses next August. After a fantastic show this year when performing to a sold out crowd, I have no doubt we will be treated to another brilliant set. Summer Saturday Live really is the perfect way to kick off the August Bank Holiday Weekend, especially when joined by a global superstar such Jess Glynne.”
