This story is over

BRIT Award winner Paloma Faith will bring her greatest hits and new material to Market Rasen Racecourse this summer.

Paloma will be the headline attraction at the racecourse on Saturday, August 18, with tickets going on sale later this week.

Known for her retro and eccentric style, Paloma burst onto the scene in 2009 with her debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful?, with the single Stone Cold Sober.

Her second studio album Fall to Grace, released in 2012, was the fourth best-selling album of the year in the UK.

Two years later, Paloma’s third album A Perfect Contradiction included two top-ten singles Can’t Rely on You and Only Love Can Hurt Like This.

She won Best British Female Solo Artist at the BRIT Awards in 2015, after being nominated for the category a previous four times.

Her fourth and most recent album, The Architect, was released in November 2017.

Paloma Faith said: “I can’t wait to perform at Market Rasen Racecourse this summer for the first time.

“I love summertime and I love outdoor shows so to be able to perform on a – hopefully – sunny evening at the course is something I’m very much looking forward to.”

Nadia Powell, general manager at Market Rasen Racecourse, added: “Our visitors have enjoyed seeing superstars like Tom Jones, Jess Glynne, Olly Murs and Kaiser Chiefs in recent times, attracting record crowds.

“Paloma Faith is a marvellous booking and we know that many thousands of her fans will be keen to snap up tickets for the concert on Saturday, August 18.

“With Plan B also performing at the racecourse on Friday, June 1, 2018 is going to be a year to remember for racing and music in Lincolnshire.”

Tickets go on sale at 8am on Friday, February 2, from the Jockey Club live website.

A pre-sale is available to customers at 8am on Wednesday, January 31.

Tickets are priced starting at £30, with a limited number of child tickets available from £20.

There will be hospitality packages available to suit all budgets.
