By The Jockey Club Live

The show must go on! The Jockey Club Live welcomes QUEEN SYMPHONIC to their line-up for summer 2022.

The rock and orchestral spectacular will headline Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 22nd July live after evening racing.

To mark the celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, Queen Symphonic will headline after racing at Market Rasen Racecourse on Bank Holiday Friday 3rd June.

QUEEN SYMPHONIC celebrates the greatest and most treasured hits of QUEEN, bringing together international stars from the award-winning musical We Will Rock You, an incredibly talented rock band and a symphony orchestra. Since its premiere in 2007, QUEEN SYMPHONIC has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of Queen fans across the globe, giving them the opportunity to hear the hits as never before.

With Queen’s epic catalogue of hits lending itself perfectly for rock and classical interpretation, expect to experience beloved tracks such as We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, We Are The Champions, A Kind of Magic, Who Wants To Live Forever, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Fat Bottomed Girls, Somebody to Love and many, many more.

With over 40 performers on stage, this concert is truly worthy of the world of symphonic rock.

Joe Callan, Interim General Manager, Market Rasen Racecourse, said:

“With our Platinum Jubilee Garden Party swiftly becoming a not-to-be-missed highlight of the Summer, we’re overjoyed to welcome Queen Symphonic to the celebrations. Queen’s music transcends generations and will be the perfect soundtrack to what will hopefully be a warm summer’s evening on the green.”

Market Rasen Racecourse will be hosting QUEEN SYMPHONIC as part of the Platinum Jubilee Garden Party celebrations, with a host of activities taking place throughout the day in recognition of this historic occasion.

Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said

“The music of Queen is timeless and loved by generations. Queen Symphonic continues their legacy performing the classics in a dazzling spectacle which I’m sure will have The July Course dancing the night away on 22nd July!”

2021 saw a season of incredible live shows at The Jockey Club racecourses, ranging from a sold-out show for Tom Jones to an afternoon of joyful singalongs with McFly at Newmarket Racecourses. Despite the challenges of staging a season in 2021, the events marked the return to live music for thousands of fans. The Jockey Club Live events continue to be renowned for combining an electric evening at the races with a spectacular evening concert in an informal and relaxed open-air setting.
