Rita Ora unveiled as star act for Haydock Park concert
5:34pm Friday 1st March 2013 in News
RITA ORA has been revealed as the singing star who will bring down the curtain on Haydock Park’s 2013 summer music nights with a smash-hit concert.
The urban star, who had three number one singles last year and saw her debut album Ora top the charts too, will perform at the racecourse on Friday, August 9.
She follows in the footsteps of bands and artists such as Simply Red, Sir Tom Jones and JLS who have played to sell-out crowds at Haydock Park.
The singer has just completed her UK Radioactive tour to rave reviews, is singing in Australia this month and is set to be a massive draw at the North West racecourse this summer.
The 22-year-old, who will be recording a second album this year, won a MOBO award in 2012 for ‘Best Newcomer’, while she was nominated for three BRIT awards this year.
Tickets are now on sale online for the Rita Ora music night or by telephone on 0844 579 3006.
Haydock Park's LIVE music season kicks off with 80's Legends Rick Astley, Paul Young, Marc Almond and ABC on Saturday (eve) June 22 and Madness play LIVE on Saturday (eve) July 20.
It's going to be a summer of fun here at Haydock Park Racecourse and music and horse racing fans alike are being urged to book their places as soon as possible.
