Liam Payne to perform at the TAB Everest

Australian Turf Club has announced that international superstar and multi-platinum recording artist Liam Payne will perform a free concert for racegoers at the $13 million TAB Everest, the world’s richest race on turf. The TAB Everest will be run on Saturday, 13 October at Royal Randwick racecourse over 1200m.

This is the second year the TAB Everest will be run, with the inaugural event attracting a $10 million prize pool and a free performance to racegoers by Jason Derulo. This year’s event is bigger and better with a massive $3 million increase to prize money.

Liam will perform an exclusive, 45-minute concert for all TAB Everest ticket holders after the last race, in the Theatre of the Horse.  He shot to fame as a member of One Direction, arguably the world’s biggest boy band with more than 61 million sales worldwide.

In 2016 he commenced his solo career and released his debut single ‘Strip That Down’ featuring Quavo. The single was a worldwide hit, topping the US charts and has since totaled over 10 million sales across the globe. ‘Strip That Down’ is certified Platinum in five countries including the UK and USA, and was one of the biggest selling singles of 2017, as well as the biggest selling solo single from any current member of One Direction.

Liam has since collaborated with some of the hottest acts of the pop music world, including superstar DJ/producer Zedd on ‘Get Low’ and more recently J Balvin, the Latin American megastar who combined for the hit single ‘Familiar’. In 2018, ‘For You’, a duet with Rita Ora was released  – a UK top ten hit which spent 17 weeks on the UK singles chart and featured on the Fifty Shades Freed official soundtrack.

Payne said of the upcoming appearance: “I’m a big fan of horse racing and to be performing at the TAB Everest is very exciting – I can’t wait to get down to Australia for it!”

Australian Turf Club Chairman, Matt McGrath said: “The TAB Everest is a showpiece event for Sydney on the global stage and we’re delighted that racegoers will celebrate the World’s richest race on turf with a free performance by an international star.’’
