It was going to be for one night only... but rock fans have persuaded St Elmo’s Fire star John Parr to make a return visit to a Doncaster village venue for the second time in six months.

The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter - who has played at some of the biggest stadiums in the world alongside legendary figures such as Tina Turner, Meatloaf and Bryan Adams - put on a one-man show at Westwoodside Village Hall last July as a personal favour to pal Phil Callaghan, who lives in the village.

The event turned out to be a sell-out success with fans packing the hall to the rafters.

Now John has agreed to return to Westwoodside on Saturday, January 18, for a repeat performance.

The Doncaster rocker said: “It was supposed to be a one-off as a favour to Phil, but there’s been such demand for another show that Phil asked if I’d consider coming back. Westwoodside was a real wow last time, and I can’t wait to get back there again.”

Tickets for the show - which charts John’s rise from his early days in Worksop to working on major hit movies in Hollywood - are available from Phil on 01427 752 766 priced £10.
