The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are delighted to announce PALOMA FAITH will be headlining Newmarket Nights on Friday 22nd June. With her acclaimed Number 1 album ‘The Architect’ riding high in the charts and a BRIT nomination for Best British Female, Paloma Faith will be bringing hits old and new to the course for a stunning headline performance.
Paloma Faith returned to the charts in 2017 with ‘The Architect’, which has sold over 250,000 copies so far and followed the huge success of her 2014 album, ‘A Perfect Contradiction’, which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200. The new album is currently on course to become her fourth double platinum album in a row – which would make her the first British woman in chart history to achieve this incredible feat!
Equally at home both onstage and in the studio, this show will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the summer season.
Paloma Faith said;
‘I can’t wait to perform at Newmarket Racecourses this summer for the first time. I love summertime and I love outdoor shows so to be able to perform on a – hopefully – sunny evening at the course is something I’m very much looking forward to’
Newmarket Nights this year will see headline performances from James Blunt (Friday 29th June), Craig David (Friday 20th July), Plan B (Friday 27th July) and George Ezra (17th August) plus The Vamps headlining the popular Summer Saturday Live on 25th August. There will be further artist announcements in the coming weeks.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said;
‘We are delighted to announce Paloma Faith as the next act in our Newmarket Nights line up for 2018. With her fantastic back catalogue of hits I have no doubt she will put on a superb show.’
