80s musical stars Simply Red and Level 42 are coming to Doncaster in 2016.

Singer Mick Hucknall and his legendary band will be performing a show at Doncaster Racecourse on August 13 as part of the course's series of Summer Live music concerts.

And fellow 80s veterans Level 42 will be in action at Town Moor on June 4 as part of the course's Derby Day celebrations.

Simply Red will play live after racing as part of their Big Love tour 2016. Celebrating 30 years in the industry, the band will be performing classic tracks from their newly released album Big Love: Greatest Hits Edition such as If You Don't Know Me By Now, Stars, Fairground and Holding Back The Years.

The group have racked up a string of smash hit singles and albums down the years and are regarded as one of the hottest live acts on the scene.

Meanwhile, Level 42 will be rocking into Doncaster earlier in the year, performing some of their best known songs.

A benchmark of classic British jazz funk, the band has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and had a string of top 40 singles including Lessons in Love, Something About You, Leaving Me Now, Running In The Family and Hot Water.
