Kaiser Chiefs and Bananarama announced for this summer's Newmarket Nights
Kaiser Chiefs will headline at Newmarket Racecourses on June 28, while Bananarama will be taking centre stage on August 9.
Newmarket favourites Kaiser Chiefs will return to the course for the first time since 2016. A festival staple, the Brit Award-winning, million-selling band shot to fame in 2005 with their breakout track, I Predict A Riot.
This was followed by hits such as Oh My God, Everyday I Love You Less and Less and the 2007 number one smash, Ruby.
Having achieved six top ten albums in the UK charts, they’ll be looking to continue the success with their new album #KC7, set to be released later this year.
For the past three decades, Bananarama’s Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward have been one of pop’s most influential and revered groups.
Their achievements speak for themselves; an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful female band worldwide with the most charting singles, multiple sell-out tours and 32 top 40 UK hits.
They have released ten albums and sold 30 million records. Their hits include Venus, Love in the First Degree and Cruel Summer. 2019 will see the band release their 11th album, In Stereo, their first studio album in ten years.
Amy Starkey, regional director east of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Kaiser Chiefs back to the Newmarket Nights stage.
"They always put on such a wonderful performance and I’m sure, given the requests we often receive to invite them back to the racecourse, that their fans will be thrilled to head to the July Course this summer and rock out with them again.
“We are also very excited to welcome Bananarama to Newmarket Nights for the first time. One of the most successful all-female groups of all time and still going strong after almost 40 years, we are sure the group will deliver a performance to remember for their fans this summer.”
With the additions of Kaiser Chiefs and Bananarama, the line-up for Newmarket’s summer season is now almost complete.
