JLS have joined the 2024 line-up!

Following the reveal of Busted’s addition to the Newmarket Nights 2024 season, The Jockey Club Live and Newmarket Racecourses are delighted to unveil the next thrilling headline concert. JLS will be live after racing on Friday 28th June.

JLS broke through in 2009 in the biggest way imaginable as the instant pop classic ‘Beat Again’ shot straight to #1 – their first of five UK chart-topping smashes which continued with ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, ‘Love You More’ and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’. With another five Top 10 hits to their credit, JLS also impacted the album charts with their self-titled #1 debut and three more Top 3 records before saying goodbye with their 2013 ‘Greatest Hits’ album. Throughout, they were heralded with numerous major awards, notably two BRIT Awards and five MOBO Awards.

But thankfully not all goodbyes are forever. While each member continued their own successful careers outside of JLS, they remained best of friends and shared a nagging feeling that they had unfinished business to address. Their ‘Beat Again’ reunion tour saw the band sell-out arenas across the country, with their second tour in three years ‘The Hits’ continuing to delight fans with a duo of shows at London’s The O2. Now the JLS heart will beat yet again as the band headline Newmarket Racecourses on Friday 28th June.

Sophie Able, General Manager of Newmarket Racecourses, said

“This week we’ve revealed two massive shows for 2024 – Busted who will be headlining on Friday 19th July and now the incomparable JLS, who will open the season on Friday 28th June. 2024 is set to be a huge year for Newmarket Nights and we can’t wait to share the rest of the line-up with you all soon. We have plenty more exciting announcement to come…!”

JLS said

“We’ve heard amazing things about Newmarket Nights and are so honoured to join the 2024 line-up! Over the past few years, it’s been a nostalgic rollercoaster reliving our greatest hits with our fans and can’t wait to continue with you all next year.”
