Enjoy a live open-air concert by JAMES at Newmarket Racecourse on 4th August 2017, as part of The Jockey Club Live series this summer.

Since forming in Manchester in 1982, James’ enduring creativity and musical legacy has made them one of the most influential British indie bands. During their music career now spanning over 30 years, they have released 14 studio albums, selling 13 million albums worldwide and hits include ‘Sit Down’, ‘Laid’ and ‘She’s A Star’. With continued commercial success, last year their latest studio album, ‘Girl At The End Of The World’ went straight in at #2 in the UK charts and received critical acclaim.

Jim Glennie from James said: “We are looking forward to playing such an iconic venue. It sounds like the gig will be rounding off a great day out.”

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 really excited to announce James as the next act for Newmarket Nights and welcome them to the Adnams July Course for the first time. It will be fantastic to see them perform their hits for our racegoers this summer and I am sure they will put on a fantastic show.”

She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.

If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse...!!)
