We’ve teamed up with The Jockey Club Live to giveaway tickets to see Status Quo live in concert at Newmarket Racecourse this month.
Status Quo, who have sold over 118 million records throughout their illustrious career, will be returning to Newmarket Racecourse for the first time following the release of their latest album ‘Aquostic’, which reached the top 5 in the UK album charts in 2014.
The release marked their 43rd hit album in the British Albums Chart; more than any other band apart from The Rolling Stones.
With iconic hits including ‘Whatever You Want’ and ‘Rockin’ All Over The World’ it is estimated that Status Quo, lead by founding members Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt, have played over 6,000 live shows in their 48 year career to a total audience in excess of 25 million people.
‘An Evening At The Races’ offers a value for money experience unlike any other this summer. Alongside incredible headlining performances, the action kicks off earlier in the evening with six races - giving fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory.
Whether you fancy a flutter or a dance with friends and family the event is certain to be an odds on favourite for all, with tickets starting at only £25.
Status Quo said: “We are absolutely delighted to be returning to Newmarket, especially as Quo were one of the first artists to successfully combine the great mix of Rock n’ Racing when we first played at Newmarket in 2003. Add to the package a great East Anglian audience and we’re all set for a memorable night!“
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are thrilled that Newmarket Racecourses will be rockin’ all over for the fourth time in the 21st Century to the iconic sounds of the legendary Status Quo.
“They wowed enormous crowds on the Adnams July Course in 2003, 2006 and 2009 – and, after that six-year internal, we are delighted that our visitors will be able once again to enjoy the music of one of the greatest English rock bands in history.”
Tickets are available now. But we have several pairs of tickets to be won by our readers.
