On Saturday 14th May this year, York’s premier Britpop poster boys will be headlining a very special show at Doncaster Racecourse.

This unique show will invite audiences to enjoy an entire day of racing at one of the UK’s most prestigious racecourses, with the added bonus of a full Shed Seven set late into the evening.

Rising to fame as one of the leading lights of the Britpop scene, some 30 years since their formation in York in 1990, Shed Seven have established themselves as one of the nation’s favourite alternative rock bands. Turning heads with the release of their classic debut album Change Giver’ in 1994, the Rick Witter five-piece unfurled a flurry of smash hits that would come to define the period and amassed an impressive fifteen top forty singles and four top twenty albums over the next five years.

After an extended hiatus in 2003, the Sheds surprised and delighted fans and critics alike as they returned with their first new studio album for 16 years; Instant Pleasures. Demonstrative of a band back at the top of their game and rippling with ideas once more, Instant Pleasures delivered exactly what it said on the tin. Rightfully rewarded with a top ten UK chart position, rave reviews and national radio play listings, the band are more in-demand than ever.

With anthemic hits spanning three decades and energy in spades, few bands could be better suited to long summer evening show to a Yorkshire county crowd than Shed Seven. Currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of their first album release, expect a mix of Sheds classics including She Left Me On Friday, Dolphin, Disco Down, High Hopes, Where Have You Been Tonight? and more, plus choice cuts from recent album Instant Pleasures, including fan favourites Room In My House and Better Days.

Whether you’re a music fan, a racing fan or both, it’s horses for courses. Live After Racing promises a unique day-out with something for everyone.
