The Victoria Racing Club (VRC) plans to celebrate its upcoming Melbourne Cup Day (5 November) in pomp and style, confirming that ten-time Grammy winner and record-breaking pop sensation Taylor Swift will perform live at the Flemington Racecourse.
Announcing a major coup for Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival, VRC management announces that it has secured Taylor Swift’s only public appearance in Australia this 2019.
Swift who released her much anticipated seventh studio album ‘Lover’ this August, is scheduled to sing two of her latest hits in the Mounting Yard gearing up audiences ‘for the race that stops a nation’.
VRC Chief Executive Officer Neil Wilson , backed the booking of Taylor Swift expanding the Spring Carnival’s global reach – “Lexus Melbourne Cup Day is the most celebrated day on Australia’s major event calendar and with a reach of 1 billion people globally, it’s only fitting the VRC welcomes the world’s most celebrated star for the event”
“To think you can come to Flemington and watch not only the race that stops a nation but see one of the world’s biggest, if not the biggest, entertainer perform for the cost of a general admission ticket is phenomenal. We look forward to welcoming Taylor Swift to our wonderful event in just under 54 days.”
Anticipating its biggest global audience to date, the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival begins with AAMI Victoria Derby Day on Saturday 2 November, followed by Lexus Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday 5 November, Kennedy Oaks Day on Thursday 7 November and Seppelt Wines Stakes Day on Saturday 9 November.
