The final Newmarket Nights headliner for 2023 announced

Press Release 20th March 2023

By The Jockey Club Live

The Jockey Club Live are thrilled to announce McFLY as the final headline act of the 2023 Newmarket Nights season. Since enrapturing thousands of fans in 2021 with their spectacular hit-filled Summer Saturday Live performance, the band will make their long-awaited evening debut on Friday 11th August.

With seven UK number-one singles, six top-ten albums, seven arena tours and ten million records sold worldwide, McFly are without question one of the most significant British pop acts of the twenty-first century. Since hitting the big time as the youngest band ever to have a debut album go straight to number one — beating The Beatles’ long-standing record — Tom Fletcher, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd have become one of our best-loved bands, not to mention major stars in their own right. Expect to hear favourites ‘All About You’, ‘Star Girl’ and ‘Obviously’ alongside future-classics ‘Happiness’ and ‘Tonight Is The Night’. With new music expected shortly, 2023 is set to be another landmark year in the McFly legacy.

McFly said

“Newmarket! We’ve been honoured to have performed for you a few times, but never an evening show. We’ve heard incredible things and we’re ready to show you what we’ve got to make it truly a night to remember!

Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said

“Our series of Newmarket Nights are highlight in the summer calendar for the whole region and we’re delighted to have announced an array of phenomenal British talent so far. McFly are a fantastic addition to what will be an unmissable season on The July Course and we can’t wait for people to join us.”
