Motown legends, The Jacksons, will be celebrating 50 music making years at Haydock Park Racecourse on 7th July to bring back some of their classics.

For two nights only, starting this Friday and Newmarket Racecourse, The Jacksons will bring their sweet soul music and brilliant choreography to their adoring fans for an open-air concert.

Formally known as The Jackson 5, the four remaining brothers will relive their legacy and perform some of their well known hits including ‘ABC’, ‘The Love You Save’, ‘I Want You Back’ and ‘I’ll Be There’.

Selling more than 200 million records throughout their career, The Jacksons have become one of the world’s most successful and adored groups which led them to be in the Billboard’s Top 100 with ‘I Want You Back’.

Jacksonmania dominated the 70s, replacing Motown’s best-selling group The Supremes, and the brothers were rewarded by being honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Jackson 5 last performed together in December 1984 at Dodger Stadium, L.A, as their ‘King of Pop’ brother, Michael Jackson, died suddenly in 2009.

Since then, The Jacksons reunited in 2010 for their Unity Tour across America and have now come to the North West to celebrate their 50th anniversary to deliver an experience unlike any other.

Tito Jackson, one of the four remaining Jackson brothers, said: ‘We had the privilege of performing for Her Majesty The Queen when we first came to the UK in 1972 and we’re always excited to return. The British audiences love their music and we can’t wait to share ours with them when we bring our show to Haydock Park Racecourse this summer!’

The Jockey Club Live are hopeful to deliver a spectacular line-up which will combine a fun filled evening at the races with a phenomenal performance from The Jacksons.

Jason Fildes, Haydock Park General Manager, said: ‘We’re thrilled to announce another fantastic act for our summer of music at Haydock Park. With Olly Murs already selling well we’re delighted that the legendary Jacksons are performing with so many of their iconic hits such as ABC, Can You Feel It, I Want You Back and I’ll Be There. We just can’t wait for the summer to start at Haydock!’
