The final artist for the 2017 Newmarket Nights season has been announced with TEXAS set to headline on July 28.

Fronted by Sharleen Spiteri, TEXAS are one of Britain’s best-loved bands. Over their 30 years, they’ve sold 35 million records, had 3 number one albums, 7 top ten albums and 13 top ten singles including hits ‘Say What You Want’, ‘Black Eyed Boy’, ‘Summer Son’ and ‘Inner Smile’. Recently releasing their 9th studio album ‘Jump On Board’, the album saw the band catapulted back into the top 10 once again.

Amy Starkey, Regional Director, Jockey Club Racecourses East Region, added: “We are pleased to announce Texas as our final act to complete the line-up of music events at Newmarket Racecourses this summer.  We look forward to welcoming Texas back to the Adnams July Course for the first time since 2011 on Friday, 28th July for what will no doubt be a fantastic evening of racing and musical entertainment.”
