Ella Henderson announced as support for James Arthur at Rasen Rocks

Press Release 9th February 2024

By The Jockey Club Live

Fresh from being nominated for her third BRIT award, RASEN ROCKS are delighted to announce Lincolnshire’s own Ella Henderson as support to James Arthur on Saturday 17th August.

Marking her arrival on the UK charts with a #1 debut single (‘Ghost’) and album (‘Chapter One’) 10 years ago, Ella Henderson has continued her ascent, becoming a multi-platinum selling, billion stream artist. A hit songwriter and powerhouse vocalist, she has collaborated with musical luminaries including Ryan Tedder and Babyface, as well as superstar DJs such as Sigma, Kygo and David Guetta. To date, she has achieved six UK Top 10s as a lead artist, the most recent being ‘React’ with Switch Disco which received a ‘Song of the Year’ nomination at the 2024 BRIT awards.

Rasen Rocks headliner James Arthur also has a huge reason to celebrate - his fifth studio album ‘Bitter Sweet Love’ reached the #1 spot in the UK album charts last Friday. James is one of the UK’s biggest success stories of the 21st century; a Brit Billion-certified artist with over 37 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone.

Jack Pryor, General Manager, Market Rasen Racecourse, said
“Ella is the perfect artist to join the Rasen Rocks line up. With both with her Lincolnshire roots and incredible catalogue of hits she will light up the course and really get the party started ahead of James Arthur’s headline set. The combination of James Arthur and Ella Henderson makes Rasen Rocks a truly unmissable event.”
