Will Young has been announced by Epsom Downs Racecourse as the latest artist to be added to the bill of this summer's Epsom Live fixtures.
Playing live after an evening of racing on Thursday 12th July, Will will be performing new material from his current Number One album 'Echoes' along with favourites from his previous albums.
In the ten years since winning Pop Idol, Will Young has sold over nine million records and crafted some of the deftest British music of his era, winning countless Brit and Ivor Novello nominations and awards in the process. A succession of hits including 'Jealousy', 'Leave Right Now', 'Evergreen' (the best selling single of the decade), 'Don't Let Me Down / You and I', 'Light My Fire', 'All Time Love', 'Who Am I' and 'Changes' from multi-platinum albums like 'From Now On', 'Friday's Child' and 'Keep On' have ensured a consistent chart presence across the whole decade.
The release of Will's fifth studio album, 'Echoes' sees his musical career develop even further. The album, produced by Richard X, entered the charts at No 1 and is fast approaching 500,000 copies in the UK so far. The first single from the album 'Jealousy' has been a top five chart and airplay smash, Will's most successful single in recent years. Grazia called it 'the best song of the year'. Will has also recently had his own ITV Saturday Night Special which drew over five million viewers, and he has delivered fantastic live performances on a wide range of TV shows from Graham Norton to Strictly Come Dancing.
Rupert Trevelyan, Managing Director for Epsom Downs Racecourse commented: "We are delighted that Will Young will be joining us at Epsom Downs Racecourse this summer. His popular chart hits will be the perfect end to an evening of horse racing as the sunsets over the Downs. We have a great line-up of acts for Epsom Live and with tickets at just £32 these fixtures are great value and prove very popular."
