Music Showcase Weekend

About

Music Showcase Weekend

The two days of the Music Showcase Saturday have become popular with racing and music fans alike, promising to be a fun filled 24 hours of top class racing and live music.

The 80's icon RICK ASTLEY has been confirmed as the first headliner for the Music Showcase Weekend at York Racecourse, taking to the stage after racing on Saturday 25th July.

His era-defining classic 'Never Gonna Give You Up' topped charts the world over and catapulted the 80's icon on a journey that would encompass 8 consecutive UK Top 10 hits and 40 million sales. After stepping aside to focus on his family, he shot back to #1 almost 30 years later with his Platinum-selling album '50'. Last month, he released his career-spanning compilation 'The Best of Me', which also included an independently recorded set of reimagined interpretations of his songs, old and new.

Last year saw Rick complete a gargantuan 38-date stadium tour as special guest to Take That, during which he played to over 500,000 people. Showing his mass appreciation across genres, he also graced the main stage of the legendary Reading Festival this summer, performing 'Never Gonna Give You Up' with one of the worlds biggest rock bands, Foo Fighters.

Watch out for the announcement of the music acts for the Friday evening, set to follow the likes of Madness or Kaiser Chiefs on to the big music stage, when our only evening fixture means the lighting show is an extra part of the experience.
