A global star, who was knighted by The Queen in 2006, he has amassed 36 top 40 UK hits and has a continued worldwide reputation as one of the great vocalists, earning the nickname ‘the voice’.

“I always have a fantastic time performing to the audiences at the racecourses so it’s my pleasure to be asked to return for another year.”
An Evening At The Races offers a value for money experience unlike any other this summer.
Alongside incredible headlining performances, the action kicks off earlier in the evening with six races .
This gives fans the chance to witness powerful equine athletes who are stars in their own right, and enjoy the thrilling drama and spectacle of them racing for glory before the live music.

Amy Starkey, Regional Director (East) of Jockey Club Racecourses, said: “This summer’s appearance at Market Rasen by Tom Jones will be the biggest concert that the racecourse has ever staged.”
“It is a real coup for Market Rasen and Lincolnshire and, at The Jockey Club Live, we are delighted to be bringing such a global star to the county. “
“Tom Jones is the complete performer and always sells out his racecourse concerts.”
“So the message to music and racing fans is to buy your tickets as soon as possible, otherwise you risk disappointment by missing out.”
