One of the best known all girl bands of all time, All Saints, are set to play York Racecourse on Music Showcase Saturday, 29 July.
All Saints (Melanie Blatt, Shaznay Lewis, Natalie & Nicole Appleton) were one of the most successful pop groups of the 1990s, with two multi-platinum albums and record sales in excess of 12 million worldwide. Their debut album, ‘All Saints’ went 5x platinum and produced 3 number-one singles, including the double BRIT award-winning ‘Never Ever’ which ended up selling over 1.2 million copies in the UK. The band returned with a new album, “Red Flag” and are back performing live to rave reviews.
All Saints said:
‘We’re loving being back in front of an audience and we’ve been told that the big crowd at York’s Music Showcase create a great atmosphere, so we can’t wait to share a special summer day with them.’

James Brennan, Head of Marketing and Sponsorship said:

I’m delighted that we will be welcoming Melanie, Shaznay, Natalie & Nicole to York. This year’s lineup offers performers who have been stars across two decades and promises to be a real treat.
