RACING AND LIVE MUSIC: TOGETHER IN ELECTRIC DREAMS ON 14 MAY
Mon, Jan 18, 2016
Exactly 35 years since releasing their landmark album Dare!, The Human League have announced they will play Uttoxeter Racecourse, in Staffordshire, on Saturday 14 May.
With four Top 10 albums and eight Top 10 singles in the UK as well as two US Number 1 singles The Human League have sold more than 20 million records worldwide; and have been cited by everyone from Madonna to Moby, and The Pet Shop Boys to Robbie Williams, as an influence.
Famously described by David Bowie in 1979 as "the sound of the future" The Human League have never rested on their laurels, and still play to sell-out crowds who flock to watch vocalist and songwriter Philip Oakey and long-serving female vocalists Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley roll back the years with such mega-hits as 'Don't you want me', 'Mirror Man', and 'Together in electric dreams'.
Uttoxeter Racecourse is keen to build on the success of their previous Live Music Racedays, which have featured UB40 and Texas; and the appearance of The Human League on 14 May is being heralded as a major coup.
Executive Director of Uttoxeter Racecourse, David MacDonald, said, "The Human League are one of the best live acts around, with a set list that comprises wall to wall hits. They have already played several hugely successful dates at racecourses around the country and we are excited to be able to bring them to Uttoxeter in May."
The concert itself will follow a full card of racing, with gates opening at 3.30pm and the first race scheduled for 5.35pm.
Tickets for the Live Music Raceday featuring The Human League go on sale from Wednesday 20 January, priced £30. Ticket prices will rise after 29 February, to £35.
Tickets are on sale both online at www.uttoxeter-racecourse.co.uk, or by telephone from the racecourse office on 01889 562561.
