Chart topping, local rock band Slade will be performing at Wolverhampton Racecourse on Saturday 5 September, live after an evening race meeting.

Wolverhampton Racecourse’s Managing Director, David Roberts, said “It’s fantastic to have such a high profile band performing at the racecourse, returning to the Black Country where they originated from back in the late 60’s. After the great success of UB40 live after racing on last year’s feature music evening date, we are very much looking forward to Slade continuing with the success of live music events at the racecourse.”

Slade rose to fame in the 1970’s glam rock era with hits including “Coz I Luv You”, “Cum On Feel the Noize”, “Mama Weer All Crazee Now” and “Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me”. The band has enjoyed six number one singles and three number one albums, with their hits topping the charts across the globe.

The concert will take place after racing on Saturday 5 September. Anyone purchasing a ticket will get to enjoy a full race meeting followed by the concert.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by call 01902 390000. Keep up to date with the racecourse news and information via Twitter (@WolvesRaces) and on Facebook (‘Wolverhampton Racecourse’).
