Meat Loaf Farewell Tour to rock Ladies Day

Newbury Racecourse has announced legendary rock musician Meat Loaf will be performing at this year’s Ladies Day Party in the Paddock. The iconic rocker will be performing his greatest hits live after racing on Saturday 17 August 2013.

Renowned for his seminal album ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ which has sold over 45 million copies and is the one of the best selling albums of all time, Meat Loaf will perform  many of his greatest hits, live after racing.


Over the years, Ladies Day has grown to become Newbury’s most popular raceday with a combination of top quality racing, fashion and live music making it a sporting and social highlight of the summer.

Stephen Higgins, Managing Director (Racecourse & Events)  commented;

“Meat Loaf’s farewell tour will be the perfect power ballad end to a great day’s racing on Ladies Day this August. He has so many big hits which the crowds can sing along to as the sun goes down. This fixture will certainly be one to remember.”

As well as exhilarating racing and a set from one of the biggest selling artists of all time, visitors can enjoy the ultimate racing experience by dining in The Hennessy, the premium restaurant in The Hampshire Stand with stunning panoramic views.  Guests can watch horses cross the winning line whilst enjoying a high standard of cuisine created by the venue’s own chef team, or hire a private box and enjoy one of the racecourse’s new hospitality menus.

Racegoers can choose from a selection of ticket packages and private hospitality, while the popular White Room After Party returns, continuing the party spirit after the concert with London based Credence DJs.

Quality racing gets underway at c.1.30pm, with highlights including two Group 3 races, the Hungerford Stakes and the Geoffrey Freer Stakes.

Meat Loaf will take to the stage in front of the grandstands approximately 15 minutes after the last race. Prices start from just £35 which includes the racing and concert or for Meat Loaf’s biggest fans, a limited selection of Golden Circle tickets are available at £65 .
