It will be his second visit to his home town in a matter of weeks.

Last month, he played a special charity concert at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium in aid of the Lost Chord Dementia Charity, which helps people with dementia through music.

The 76-year-old star first found fame in the early 1970s, scoring hits with songs such as I Did What I Did For Maria, Is This The Way To Amarillo and Avenues and Alleyways.

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.
