The Script have cancelled this year’s headline concert at Newmarket Racecourses but will return to the venue in 2021.

The chart-topping For the First Time and The Man Who Can’t Be Moved group were due at Newmarket Nights on June 19, 2020.

However, that headline show has been rescheduled for Friday, June 18, 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.

Irish pop rock trio The Script tweeted: “#TheScriptFamily… as we’re now a few more weeks into this pandemic, it’s becoming more and more clear as to what is possible and safe for us and you guys to commit to.

“That being said, we’ve had to move some more of our shows, some which we previously rescheduled, to 2021.”

A statement from The Jockey Club Live, promoters of the gig, said: “Unfortunately, The Script’s 2020 headline show on June 19th, 2020 at Newmarket Racecourses can no longer be staged due to the ongoing public health situation.

“We’re delighted to announce though that we’ve secured a date for The Script to perform in 2021.
