The Australian Turf Club announced that international superstar and recording artist Kelly Rowland will perform a free concert for racegoers attending The Everest, featuring the $14 million The TAB Everest - the world’s richest turf race on Saturday, 19 October at Royal Randwick.

In 2002, Kelly released a solo album, Simply Deep, which sold 2.5 million copies world-wide and included the number-one single “Dilemma” with rapper Nelly. In 2006, Kelly released her second album Ms. Kelly that included international hits “Like This” and “Work”. Throughout her career, Kelly has sold over 30 million records as a solo artist and a further 60 million records with Destiny’s Child.

Kelly said of her upcoming appearance “I’m coming back Australia! I’m really excited to be returning down under to perform at The TAB Everest!”

The Australian Turf Club’s Executive General Manager of Commercial, Corina Black said: “We are delighted to welcome Kelly Rowland to perform as the headline artist in The Theatre of the Horse at this year’s Everest at Royal Randwick. With 30+ million records sold as a solo artist, Kelly is a bona fide international star who has a strong connection with her passionate Australian fans.”

Oozing unique style, Kelly’s performance with be the ultimate entertainment factor, thrilling our growing number of younger racegoers, whilst also appealing to her loyal following,” said Corina. “Saturday 19 October 2019 is going to be a day to remember; where fashion, entertainment and racing collide into what will be the pinnacle event of this season’s Everest Carnival,” she added.
