Miss Clover said a performance by rhythm and blues singer Billy Ocean is also a major coup for the venue.

She added: “I am also looking forward to welcoming back the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on October 18. Theirs is a big show with a big noise and they are performing one of the biggest classical pieces the 1812 overture.

“It's famous for its cannon and we will be having mortar affects and pyrotechnics, it should be a great night.”
