Deacon Blue has played at Aintree Photograph by Patrick Trollope.
Friday, 13 May 2016, it was a
lucky day for some as
closed what was an amazing day at the races. This was the 1st event of the year,
for the Jockey Club Live program, that will see live concerts closing a day's
racing at racecourses throughout the North West. The weather was perfect for the
day, but despite a nip in the wind, the weather held as the final race finished
and the amazing Scottish pop rock band took to the stage outside the Paddock
Lodge. Considering the band was formed in Glasgow during 1985, these lads still
draw in the fans. Not many bands can say they can or do actually do that! And
yes, they can still deliver a stunning show as well! The atmosphere was amazing
and it was interesting to see a mix of ages enjoying it. Most were over the age
of 30, but even the younger members and older race goers joined in and had fun.
This is something you don't often see at most of the UK's outdoor events
anymore... Sadly we could only get a few snaps on the night, as we had to dash
off back to Light Nights, but what we did see and hear made us want to stay!
To see the photographs, click on this
here now. It is no wonder
this was a sell out success for The
Club. As this was the 1st Live Music Event
of the year, in the North West, for The Jockey Club's live music entertainment
program, it will be hard for other groups to top. Feed back from the Station
staff on the Merseyrail Network, long after the event finished, said that people
had been singing on the trains after attending the event and saying how good the
event had been to them. If you attended we would love to know what you thought
of this event, so please email our newsroom via:-
News24@SouthportReporter.com and let us know. Also, it is worth
knowing that there are still 17 events to go in the UK, like this 1, but for us
on Merseyside, the next events that you should make a special note off are as
► Tom Jones, on 10 June 2016 at Aintree.
► The Corrs, on 18 June 2016 at- Haydock Park.
► Jess Glynne, on 1 July 2016 at Haydock Park.
► Lisa Stansfield, on 5 August 2016 at Haydock Park.
If you want to attend them, get your tickets quick as they will sell out fast,
