York Racecourse has seen some pretty outrageous outfits over the years but nothing quite like this…
Global superstars Pussycat Dolls will headline the racecourse’s Music Showcase weekend on Friday 24 July it was announced today.
Featuring Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Jessica Sutta and Carmit Bachar, the Dolls have sold more than 55 million records worldwide.
Their songs have been streamed more than three billion times, they were twice wWinners at the MTV VMA and have achieved eight UK top ten singles.
They made their much-anticipated live return during the final of X Factor: Celebrity at the end of last year, a show where Nicole Scherzinger is a long-standing judge.
The band will be bringing hits such as ‘Don’t Cha’, ‘Stickwitu’, ‘When I Grow Up’, ‘Buttons’ and more fan favourites back to life with their iconic dance routines and show-stopping vocals.
York Racecourse head of marketing James Brennan said:
Announcements don’t come much bigger than being able to say that Pussycat Dolls will be bringing their Doll Domination to York Racecourse for a special Friday night performance to open the Music Showcase Weekend.
Performances on a Friday evening have always had a special atmosphere with the excitement for the stars on the turf and the stars on the stage in the evening combining to make this an event to put in your diary now.
