Internationally-acclaimed singer-songwriter James Blunt will be entertaining the crowds at Epsom Downs Racecourse this summer.

As part of its Epsom Live series of evening racing events, Blunt will perform his best known and much-loved hits.  

The singer, 40, should feel at home at the venue as racing and horses are in his roots.  His uncle worked for The Jockey Club and Blunt spent much of his childhood with horses. 

He then went on to become a member of The Household Cavalry, assuming the status of Army Officer before his rapid climb to international fame.

Blunt first rose to stardom nine years ago, with the release of his debut studio album Back to Bedlam, which swiftly caught the attention of the nation.

He then achieved worldwide fame with the defining and memorable singles You’re Beautiful and Goodbye My Lover.

His second album, All the Lost Souls, topped the charts in over 20 countries, and, to date, he has sold nearly 17 million albums and 20 million singles worldwide.

Rupert Trevelyan, regional director, London of Jockey Club Racecourses, says: "James Blunt is hugely popular performer and we are delighted to welcome him for the first time to Epsom Downs Racecourse. 

"With his love of horses and music he is the perfect fit for our Epsom Live evenings and we are anticipating a surge of interest in his concert, so racing and music fans alike are recommended to book their places as soon as they can."

Blunt’s fourth studio album, Moon Landing, was released last October, and, according to the singer himself, it is about dreams, longing and first love.

Do not delay booking his gig at the world’s most famous racecourse - the first 1,000 tickets sold will receive a 10 per discount.
