The headline act for Flamingo Land Resort’s next Party in the Park concert has just been announced.

MATT TERRY came to fame after being placed in the Boys category on the thirteenth UK series of X Factor and was eventually crowned the winner. Following this success, Matt released his winner’s single, ‘When Christmas Comes Around’, which peaked at number three in the UK singles chart.  

Matt will be supported by the Jeff Dingle Band –  Jeff’s appearance on American Idol in 2004 made him an overnight global star.  His music took him all over the world,  headlining festivals before settling in the UK.

“This will be our fourth Party in the Park this Season. The previous concerts have been a great success and we look forward to creating a sensational atmosphere again on our Riverside One all-weather stage as these two popular acts perform on Saturday 19th August,” said Sarah Mills Director of Marketing Flamingo Land Resort.

Matt, who was mentored by Nicole Scherzinger, has gone on to secure a recording deal with RCA records.  He has just released his brand new single, a remix of Subeme La Radio by Enrique Iglesias.  The new version of this track, which translates to ‘Beam Me Up Radio’ also features Enrique as well as Sean Paul.  This single is now number three in the official charts, and Matt will be performing this live at Flamingo Land.

“Party in the Park is a great way to spend a summer’s evening and guests can buy a theme park ticket for the day which then gives them free access to the concert. Alternatively they can arrive at 5pm for an hour in the theme park followed by the concert for just £10 each.” said Sarah. “There is a wide variety of food and drink outlets around Riverside One so that guests can make it a social occasion.”

The concert starts at 6pm with a children’s Farewell Show followed by the Spice Pirates acrobatic troupe and a host of supporting acts before the 2 main acts take to the stage. The event concludes at approximately 10.30pm. Tickets are on sale on the Flamingo Land website.
