Jess Glynne - an open air concert at Sandown Park Racecourse

Press Release 10th December 2018 Sandown Park

The Jockey Club Live and Sandown Park Racecourse are please to announce their first show for the 2019 summer season – JESS GLYNNE will playing on Thursday 8th August 2019.

In her first few years in the music industry, Jess has carved out a unique slot all of her own. Where others were contemplating the aftermath of heartache, she was always about standing on your own two feet. At the start of 2018, she took a listen back to her just completed second album, Always in Between. Like her blockbuster debut, I Cry When I Laugh, Jess brokers the hinterlands between pop, soul, R&B and house music on it.

When you look at the statistics that have marked her sky-rocketing career so far, there is probably a look of mild disbelief on your face…. I Cry When I Laugh is one of the defining British pop records of its era. At the time of writing it has been a chart staple for 138 weeks. It debuted at number one, spawning 12 million worldwide singles sales, 39 weeks on the UK top 10, 2.5 billion Spotify streams, a sold out UK arena tour, Brit, MTV: EMA, Ivor Novello, MOBO, Q and Glamour award nominations.

Phil White, Regional Director, London Region, Jockey Club Racecourses said:

“We are delighted to announce Jess Glynne as our first confirmed act performing at Sandown Park next summer.

“It’s exciting to be welcoming an internationally renowned artist to Esher and we’re set to enjoy a great evening of racing followed by top live music.”
