Craig David will headline a concert at Newmarket Racecourses next summer.
The Grammy and BRIT Award nominated singer will play Newmarket Nights on Friday, July 20, 2018.
Amy Starkey, Regional Director East of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “We are delighted to confirm Craig David’s first headline show at Newmarket Nights on July 20.
“His live shows are renowned, having sold out arenas across the country, and I have no doubt we are in store for an incredible performance full of hits.”
Having sold over 15 million albums, achieving 16 top 10 hits and multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries, Craig David is back and in a big way.
Initially rising to success with hit singles including 7 Days, Fill Me In and Walking Away, 16 years later Craig was catapulted back into the charts and into the nation’s hearts with Big Narstie on the gold certified single When The Bassline Drops, marking the beginning of his triumphant return.
He has since released the number one album Following My Intuition, and this will be followed by new album The Time Is Now, out in January 2018 via Sony Records.
The first track from his new album, I Know You, features alt-pop giants Bastille.
Going from success to success, Craig also recently won his sixth MOBO Award of his career for Best R&B/Soul Act.
The announcement of Craig David follows The Vamps being confirmed for the family-friendly Summer Saturday Live, headlining on August 25, 2018.
