However, in 2002, he was catapulted back into the limelight after comedian Peter Kay teamed up with the singer for a re-released version of Amarillo, spending seven weeks at number one.

It led to a career revival for the singer, with more hits, albums and tours following.

The show will take place at the Keepmoat on September 28 from 7pm.Tickets, which are priced at £65, include the show, a drinks reception and three course meal and are available HERE
