Danny O’Donoghue and The Script will be returning to Suffolk next summer with a performance at Newmarket Racecourses in June 2020.

The Irish trio are the first headliner of Newmarket Nights 2020 to be revealed and will take to the stage as the sun sets over the west Suffolk racecourse on Friday, June 19.

Earlier this week the Jockey Club announced McFly would be headlining their Summer Saturday Live concert on Saturday, August 29.

The Script are one of the most successful Irish acts of recent times with 12 million monthly Spotify listeners.

They will be performing hits including 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved', 'Hall of Fame', 'For The First Time' and 'Superheroes' when they open the summer season at Newmarket.

The band, fronted by The Voice star O'Donoghue, will also be bringing their latest hit 'The Last Time' from their sixth studio album 'Sunsets & Full Moons,' which was released last week, to the home of British horseracing.

O'Donoghue said: "Guys, we're really excited to be headlining Newmarket Racecourses on June 19, it's going to be awesome. We shall see you there!'
