The next show announced for Heritage Live Concert Series at Audley End House and Gardens will be a once in a lifetime triple-header of disco, headlined by one of the biggest groups of all time.

Giles Cooper Entertainment (GCE) have announced that Audley End House & Gardens will host a stellar line-up of live music concerts in summer 2019.

The Heritage Live Concert Series will take place across the weekend of the July 12-14.

The headline act for July 14 is The Jacksons, joined by Kool And The Gang and Boney M featuring Maizie Williams.

Celebrating their 50th anniversary, marked by the 1969 release of their chart-topping debut single, “I Want You Back”, The Jacksons, consisting of founding members Jermaine, Tito, Jackie and Marlon, continue to wow audiences across the world as one of the certified biggest band’s of all-time.

With the ubiquitous hits: “ABC”, “The Love You Save” and “I’ll Be There”, the Jackson 5 made history with their trademark sound in 1970 as the first recording act whose first four singles reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

They ultimately scored 17 top 40 singles on the Hot 100, following with hits such as “Never Can Say Goodbye” and “Dancing Machine”, and set a benchmark for popular music.

Completing the line-up will be Boney M, featuring original singer and founding member Maizie Williams. Since their inception in 1976 in West Germany, the group have sold more than 150 million records worldwide with their quintessential hits of the Disco era, including “Daddy Cool”, “Brown Girl In The Ring”, “Rivers of Babylon”, “Mary’s Boy Child” and “Rasputin”.
