Pop group Steps and Aussie heart throb Peter Andre are the latest big names to sign up to perform at Hamilton Park this summer.

With global icon Sir Tom Jones already announced to sing live at the venue on July 6, management at the racecourse have moved swiftly to secure another two major acts for a super-pop concert the following evening on Saturday July 7.

For Steps it will be the latest stage in their comeback which includes the band’s popular Reunion documentary on Sky Living and a sell-out 22-date UK tour in April.

The band will perform a full tour set including hits from The Ultimate Collection including One for Sorrow and Last Thing On My Mind.

Also is Peter Andre who will roll back the years to belt out some of his biggest hit songs such as Mysterious Girl, Insania and Flava.

Tickets for the event start at just £30 and go on sale Friday, April 6.

Hamilton Park chief executive Vivien Kyles said: “This is the perfect pop package for music fans of all ages – it would be a ‘Tragedy’ for them to miss out.

“Adding another two major names in Steps and Peter Andre to a weekend which will be kicked off by Tom Jones means we are providing a genuinely unique menu of music within little more than 24 hours.

“Going by the popularity of Steps’s UK tour and TV series, Peter’s loyal fan base and ticket prices starting at just £30, we expect pop fans will flock in their droves to Hamilton Park Racecourse to see these two fantastic acts perform during the first weekend in July.”

Meanwhile Radio 1 presenter Reggie Yates will host his very own post-racing open-air DJ spectacular on Saturday, July 14.

Reggie, who presents the Official Top 40 every week and currently fronts BBC1’s The Voice alongside Tom Jones, will entertain thousands of racing fans at Hamilton Park with a 60-minute set.

Ms Kyles added: “Reggie is a man in the know in terms of the best new sounds from both home and abroad, and he is sure to get race revellers in the mood for a sensational night of music and dance following the meeting.

“We were keen to introduce yet another entertainment option to our customers and Reggie has that rare universal appeal.”

Racenight with Reggie Yates, which includes a full racing card, is one of Hamilton Park’s Super Six fixtures and also features an array of free entertainment for children including fun rides, a bouncy castle, face painting and hair braiding.

Gates open at 4pm and first race of six gets underway at 6pm. Tickets are available in advance from just £13 per person and children under 16 get in free.

The Hamilton Park Racecourse 18-fixture 2012 season gets off to a flyer with the Cancer Research UK Family Day on Sunday, May 6.
