Singer-songwriter James Blunt will play Newmarket Nights at the famous racecourse this summer.

The Jockey Club Live presents the You’re Beautiful singer at Newmarket Racecourses on Friday, June 29.

The Newmarket Nights favourite returns after giving thousands of fans an unforgettable performance in 2014.

Having recently toured with mate Ed Sheeran, James Blunt is one of the most prolific British artists of recent times.

His 2004 debut, the phenomenally successful 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 Perfect chart-topper Ed Sheeran on tour in the United States and Australia.

James Blunt said: “I’m really looking forward to returning to Newmarket Racecourses on my tour.

“It will definitely be a highlight for me this summer.”

Plan B will also play Newmarket Nights this summer, and joins the previously announced Craig David (July 20) and The Vamps (August 25).

Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are delighted to announce Plan B and James Blunt as our next Newmarket Nights headliners.

“We’re excited to welcome James back as we know first hand how exceptional his live shows are.”
