GLOBAL music stars Kylie and the Kaiser Chiefs are to headline two massive concerts at Haydock Park this summer.

The Jockey Club Live’s An Evening At The Races returns with a bang for 2015 with this first pair of major signings for the acclaimed Haydock Nights season.

At home in some of the world’s biggest and best arenas, Pop Princess Kylie Minogue is renowned for her spectacular live shows.

She celebrated her first UK number one in 1987 with I Should Be So Lucky, clocking up huge chart hits including Spinning Around and Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.

Kylie has now been at the forefront of pop culture for 28 years, selling over 70 million records worldwide and releasing her 12th studio album Kiss Me Once last year. With her incredible back catalogue, featuring 44 UK Top 40 hits, Kylie will be playing her classic hits old and new when she brings glamour to the Grandstands. Kylie said: “I’m so excited to be performing at an evening at the races. I have an amazing band and fabulous dancers and we can’t wait.

“Being from a horse racing city like Melbourne, I’ll be sure to have a flutter on the horses myself!”

Following on from Kylie’s headlining performance at Haydock Nights on June 20, Brit Award-winning, multimillion selling Kaiser Chiefs – led by BBC1’s The Voice coach Ricky Wilson – will be bringing their formidable live show to the course on August 7. The band shot to recognition in 2005 for breakout hit I Predict A Riot, followed by hits including Oh My God, Everyday I Love You Less and Less and 2007 No.1 – Ruby.

They released their latest LP, Education, Education, Education & War last year, smashing into the No.1 spot on the UK album chart on release. The record became their second chart-topping long play, following 2007’s Yours Truly Angry Mob and became their fifth top 10 album. As well as the headline acts, An Evening At The Races involves an evening of six races. Ticket prices start at only £30.

Haydock Park general manager Jason Fildes said: “Music nights at Haydock Park are renowned for being a fabulous night out and we’re delighted to have an international superstar, Kylie, to kick off the summer of music in 2015. “Kylie is a hugely popular artist with legions of followers worldwide so it’ll be great to see her at Haydock Park for the very first time.

“We’re expecting a rush for tickets for one of the ‘must be there’ music events of the summer, all racing and music fans are urged to reserve their tickets as soon as they can.”

Tickets will be on sale at 9am February 6 via www.thejockeyclublive.co.uk.

Tickets start at £30 adults /£15 child (under 17) for Kaiser Chiefs, and £35/£17.50 for Kylie.
