“And the icing on the cake? The legendary Supergrass will be taking to the stage after racing to end your evening on a high.”

Supergrass are one of the biggest bands to emerge from the rock scene in the 1990s.

The band - Gaz Coombes, Mick Quinn, Danny Goffey and Rob Coombes – have achieved several million record sales, including six top 10 albums and ten top 20 singles.

Formed in Oxford UK in 1993, the Brit, Q, NME and Ivor Novello-winning outfit released their Mercury-nominated No.1 debut album I Should Coco in 1995.

Fourth single, ‘Alright’, was a pop masterpiece for the group and became a massive hit, catapulting the band to global success.

Follow up hits included Richard III, Moving and Pumping On Your Stereo.

Supergrass tickets will be available for pre-sale via Ticket Master at 10am on Friday 17 January, followed by general sale on Friday 31 January directly from Doncaster Racecourse.
