“I’m really looking forward to appearing at An Evening At The Races this summer. I always have a fantastic time performing to the audiences so it’s my pleasure to be asked to return for another year,” said The Voice coach, who has notched up 36 top 40 UK hits during his 50-plus year career.

Known for songs like Kiss, Delilah, She’s A Lady and It’s Not Unusual, he plays there August 7.

Selling more than 25million records worldwide, Boyzone are one of Ireland and the UK’s biggest boybands.

“There’s nothing Boyzone like more than an evening at the races so we can’t wait to get back to Newmarket for some great nights of music, racing, the odd flutter and a drink or two,” said the group, who are celebrating 20 years together.

“It’s wonderful news Sir Tom Jones, a Newmarket Nights regular with three appearances on The July Course since 2011, is returning. He is the complete performer and, not surprisingly, they have all been sell-out evenings. Tom loves horseracing and music coming together. As he says ‘win or lose you still have a great time’,” said Amy Starkey, regional director east of Jockey Club Racecourses.
