Newmarket Nights 2018: James Blunt
22 January 2018, 06:00
We're excited to confirm that James Blunt is the latest artist to be added to this year's Newmarket Nights line-up.
After giving thousands of fans an unforgettable performance back in 2014, the BRIT award winner is welcomed back to the Adnams July Course this summer on Friday 29th June.
James Blunt joins Craig David, Plan B and Paloma Faith on the list of artists confirmed to perform as part of the 2018 season of live music and horse racing at Newmarket, proudly supported by Heart.
The latest addition to Newmarket Nights is one of the most successful British artists of recent times.
His 2004 debut, the brilliant ‘Back to Bedlam’, became one of the best selling albums in UK chart history, producing break-out hits ‘You’re Beautiful’, ‘Wisemen’ and ‘Goodbye My Lover’.
He has since sold over 20 million albums worldwide and 12.8 million singles, with most recent album ‘The Afterlove’ becoming his fifth top 10 charting album. The album cycle saw him sell out arenas across Europe and join Ed Sheeran on tour in the United States and Australia.
Expect a fantastic evening of live racing and music on Friday 29th June!
Newmarket is the historic home of horse racing and hosts a season of live music across the summer.
In 2017, highlights included performances by Little Mix, Olly Murs and Jess Glynne.
