Ascot’s Shergar Cup 1980s concert...spotlight on Jason Donovan

As some of the finest jockeys in the world descend upon Ascot Racecourse on Saturday 6th August, we look ahead to the spectacular 1980s Here and Now concert after this year’s Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup. In the run up to the raceday, each week we will focus on one of the acts performing in the concert. Kicking off this trip down memory lane is Australian legend Jason Donovan.

Jason Donovan shot to fame in the Australian soap opera Neighbours as Scott Robinson. Jason went on to have a successful pop career with many hits like ‘Nothing Can Divide Us’, ‘Especially for You’ (with Kylie Minogue) and ‘Everyday I Love You More’. He has sold over 3 million records in the UK with his debut album ‘Ten Good Reasons’ selling over 1.5 million copies alone making it the highest selling album of 1989.
Jason has not only wowed his audience as a pop singer, but he has also performed the lead in many West End shows such as ‘Joseph & The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’, ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ and most recently ‘Priscilla Queen Of The Desert’. After re-launching his career in I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2006, Jason went on to produce his ‘Greatest Hits’ album and in 2010 released his 5th album ‘Soundtrack of the 80s’.

Tickets for the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup (Saturday 6th August), including the Here and Now concert, start from £26. To book, or for further information, call 0870 727 1234 or visit
