It was going to be for one night only but rock fans have persuaded St. Elmo’s Fire rocker John Parr to make a return visit to a small local 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 Tina Turner, Meatloaf and Bryan Adams - put on a one-man show at Westwoodside Village Hall in July as a favour to pal Phil Callaghan.

The event was a sell out success with fans packing the hall to the rafters - and some even travelling from 100 miles.

Now John has agreed to return to Westwoodside on Saturday for a repeat show.

The Doncaster rocker, who has sold over 10 million albums, admits he’s looking forward to the date.

“It was supposed to be a one off event as a favour to Phil, but there’s been such a demand for another show that Phil asked if I’d consider coming back to the village again,” he said.

“I’ve played massive stadiums such as Sydney Opera House and Madison Square Gardens, but nothing beats playing an intimate little hall, where the audience is there up close soaking up the atmosphere.”

“Westwoodside was a real wow last time, and I can’t wait to get back there again.”

Tickets priced at £10 are available by calling Phil on 01427 752766.
