JAMES BLUNT will set hearts a-throbbing when he plays a concert at the end of a day's racing in Bath, rounding off summer 2018.

Tickets have just gone on sale for the September 15 gig, which follows one of the racecourse's headline Bath Festival Cup meetings.

Tickets for the gig, when gates open at 6pm, are on sale now so the race crowd can enjoy dancing into the evening.

James Blunt released his fifth studio album, The Afterlove in March 2017 through Warner Music. The new album is the follow-up to the multi-platinum selling Moon Landing.

James’ recent single Love Me Better is available to stream and download now. The single shows Blunt in a new light, thanks in part to Ryan Tedder’s fresh and modern pop production, and the lyrics combine a heartfelt poignancy along with touches of Blunt’s classic, self-deprecating humour.

James worked with a wide range of talent when writing and recording The Afterlove including Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Shannon Saunders), Johnny McDaid (Example, Biffy Clyro), Stephan Moccio (Miley Cyrus, The Weekend) and MoZella (Miley Cyrus, One Direction).

James is currently partway through the European and World Afterlove tour, which continues into 2018.

Tickets for the Bath Racecourse show, £40, are available from 0161 275 8329/www.vmstickets.co.uk.
