Razorlight and special guests Happy Mondays

To perform at

Taunton Racecourse

Saturday 17 August 2019


Razorlight will perform in Taunton this summer! The iconic rock band have announced a very special concert at Taunton Racecourse on Saturday 17 August, bringing their impressive catalogue of hits in what promises to be an incredible evening of music. They will be joined by special guests the ebullient Happy Mondays and a further artist to be announced shortly.

Razorlight are an English indie rock band formed in London in 2002 by lead singer and guitarist Johnny Borrell. They quickly became one of the most compelling, maverick guitar bands to have emerged out of the UK, selling four million albums. Their debut album, Up All Night, was released in the UK in 2004, followed by the No1 album Razorlight in 2006. The band have released hit after hit, including Somewhere Else, In the Morning, America, Golden Touch and Wire to Wire and will be performing all of these and more in Taunton. Razorlight have gone on to play sold out arena tours, headline festivals and support both the Rolling Stones and U2 on global tours. They are one of the most influential bands of their generation.

The Happy Mondays are a legendary band with an iconic set of songs. They hail from Manchester and were originally signed to the influential Manchester-based label Factory Records. They formed in 1980 with a sound that owed as much to northern soul and funk as it did rock and psychedelia. It was, however, the influence of the house music records beaming in from Chicago at the time that had the most profound effect on the band.

In 1990 they released the seminal Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches album which collided with the acid house and rave movement that had swept the UK, firmly putting the Happy Mondays on the map as one of the most inspiring bands to come out of England in the early 1990s.

They disbanded in 1994 and have reformed several times in subsequent decades. 30 years on from their debut album Squirrel And G-Man..., Shaun, Bez and the gang continue to electrify the stage.

Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live said “We are absolutely delighted to be working with Razorlight this summer and to be bringing yet another fantastic concert to Taunton. The racecourse provides a beautiful setting for what promises to be a wonderful night of summer sounds. Razorlight have a huge catalogue of hits and are phenomenal live and we are certain that the Happy Mondays will prove hugely popular with fans, too. Look out for the next artist announcement coming soon.”
