Uttoxeter Racecourse have announced that they have secured a double line-up from the 80s and 90s with Heaven 17 and Lightning Seeds set to play the Staffordshire venue on Saturday 19 May 2018.
The hugely successful English new wave and synth-pop band, Heaven 17, formed in Sheffield in 1980. The band, who splintered off from The Human League, are now a duo of Martyn Ware and Glenn Gregory. Following a hugely successful 2017 that saw the band tour America and the UK to sell out shows, Heaven 17 will entertain the Uttoxeter crowds with their string of hit UK singles, including their classic debut single (We Dont Need This) Fascist Groove Thang, as well as Temptation, Come Live with Me and Crushed by the Wheels of Industry.
Heaven 17 will also be joined by 90s indie-rock legends Lightning Seeds. Formed by frontman Ian Broudie, the Lightning Seeds have secured a reputation as one of the most prominent bands of the 1990s, finding success with anthemic UK top 20 hits, Pure, Lucky You, along with Sugar Coated Iceberg and You Showed Me.
After an 'elongated break, the band reformed in 2006 and have since been living The Life of Riley whilst enjoying the festival scene. Set to play live after racing during the 2018 World Cup Year, Three Lions will definitely be on the cards and a clear sing-a-long favourite.
