Hothouse Flowers will be headlining the Cork Rocks event on Friday, July 8.
Cork Racecourse Mallow has announced the return of Cork Rocks this summer along with headline act Hothouse Flowers. The event is set to take place at the racecourse on Friday, July 8.
Hothouse Flowers will be preceded by an action packed, thrilling round of races. The first race will begin at 17:05 with the last taking place at 20:05. The headliners will then take to the stage at 20:30.
Speaking ahead of Cork Rocks, General Manager Andrew Hogan said,
"We are thrilled to announce that Hothouse Flowers will join us once again at the racecourse on Friday 8th July. Their 2019 gig here with us is one that will go down in history and we are certain of a wonderful night again this July. At €20, tickets for racing and music represent great value for a brilliant summer’s night out.”
With influences ranging from soul, gospel, and rock, Hothouse Flowers have remained a consistent live force on the Irish music scene. While the band head into the fourth decade of their lengthy career, there is a sense of unfinished business. Every night they want to play the best gig they have ever played and take musical risks that can make that possible. Whether it’s in a tiny club, an arena or in a festival field, there is a sense that the best is yet to come.
The band originally formed in Dublin, 1985. Their first album, People (1988), was the most successful debut album in Irish history, reaching No. 1 in Ireland and No. 2 in the UK. After two more albums and extensive touring, the group separated in 1994. Since reuniting in 1998, the band members have sporadically issued new songs and toured while also pursuing solo careers.
A second Cork Rocks night will take place on July 22nd featuring Declan Nerney live after racing. Cork Racecourse is only 10 minutes from Mallow Town Centre with dedicated free shuttle buses running from the town centre and train station. Ample free parking is available.
