IoM TT Event

Two of the UK’s leading music talents will play at the 2010 Isle of Man TT festival, it has been confirmed. Johnny Borrell, lead singer of Razorlight, will appear at the Villa Marina, Douglas, on Thursday, June 10, and Doves will play the same venue on Tuesday, June 8.

They join former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown and comedians Ross Noble and Al Murray on the entertainment bill for the 2010 TT.

As founder, frontman and lead singer of Razorlight, Borrell has notched-up two four-times platinum-selling albums – Up All Night and Razorlight – and a gold-selling album, Slipway Fires, as well as five UK top 10 singles including the chart topping indie classic America and smash hits Somewhere Else, In the Morning and Wire to Wire.

At his Villa Marina show, Borrell will be playing Razorlight’s biggest hits and a selection of his own original material

Manchester-based indie band Doves will play in the Isle of Man just days before appearing on the main stage at the Isle of Wight Festival.

With anthems like: There Goes The Fear, Black and White Town and Snowden, Doves have firmly established themselves as one the UK’s best rock bands.

They followed up the platinum-selling debut album Lost Souls with two UK chart-topping albums, The Last Broadcast and Some Cities. Their latest album, Kingdom of Rust, released in 2009, reached number 2 in the UK album chart.

In addition to music and comedy acts, the 2010 TT will also see a high profile stunt production scheduled every evening and fans will also be entertained with quizzes, chat shows, local music, motorcycle meetings, TT race winners parade and closing firework show.

David Cretney (Community, Culture and Leisure Minister) says: "Music has latterly become a more important part of the TT festival experience and we are delighted to have now confirmed three quality headline acts for the 2010 TT Races that really complement all of the other events that are taking place. We now have a great TT festival lined up for 2010 that we think will appeal to a broad audience."
