Boyzone to play York Racecourse



Music legends, Boyzone, are to play York Racecourse on Music Showcase Saturday, 28 July.

Celebrating twenty-five years together, Ronan, Keith, Mikey & Shane are the second of three music acts to be named for the 2018 season, with Paloma Faith already confirmed for Saturday 30 June and Friday evening 27 July, where the act is yet to be confirmed.

Six UK Number One singles, more than 13 million record sales and four Brit Awards serve only to tell part of the story of a band who burst onto the scene with their appearance on the Late Late Show back in 1993.

Expect to hear hits including, “No Matter What”, “Words” “Picture of You” and “Father and Son”.

Looking forward to a return to York, where he recently starred in Panto, Shane Lynch said; ‘I can’t wait to be back in York, being back together promises to be great fun. We’ve always loved outdoor shows and can’t wait to make some more memories with our fans!’

BOOK HERE; admission to the main Grandstand and Paddock enclosure, starts at just £25 per person for a group of six.* Racegoers aged 5-17 enjoy a special rate of just £10 (subject to limited availability). As well as free car parking, there are no booking fees.

On the racecourse itself, The Sky Bet York Stakes will be the £120,000 centerpiece of a seven race card that will precede the concert.

James Brennan, Head of Marketing and Sponsorship said, “Everyone at the course is really excited that Boyzone have chosen York to help mark their anniversary. Add in the spectacle of the racing itself and we hope it will prove a summer day to savour.”
