Billy Ocean is coming to Ponte!!!!
Following on from Bananarama at 80’s Night in 2017 and Belinda Carlisle in 2018, the incredible Billy Ocean will be joining us in 2019! He’ll be performing a greatest hits set straight after the last race.
Billy Ocean has sold over 30 million records to date. With number one hits in the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and Holland, he’s achieved extraordinary success as both an artist and a songwriter.
His first big break came when ‘Love Really Hurts Without You’ reached No. 2 in the UK charts. Other huge hits, including ‘Red Light Spells Danger’, followed on, before the million-selling, Grammy Award-winning, US Number 1 ‘Caribbean Queen’, ‘Loverboy’ and ‘Suddenly’. There were even more huge hits with ‘When The Going Gets Tough (the tough gets going) and ‘There’ll Be Sad Songs (to make you cry)’ before the now classic ‘Get Outta My Dreams; Get Into My Car’ gave Billy his third US No. 1.
With a back catalogue like this, the 24th May promises to be one of the best music nights that Pontefract has ever seen! Add in the fantastic 80’s Night atmosphere and 6 exciting races, it’s definitely a date for the diary!
