Irish singing sensation Rose-Marie will be at the Orchard Theatre later this month.
Having just performed in Las Vegas, her new mini tour is taking in some of her favourite places in the UK.
The singer, famed for her flame red hair and zany humour, has captured the hearts of many with more than 15 million album sales worldwide – though her beginnings were much more humble.
She said: “My first performance was for a herd of cows and I would sing Danny Boy to them before I went to school. The acoustics in the barn were fantastic.
“I was then on Search for a Star and had my first hit record in 1986.
“I was touring with the likes of Gene Pitney, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash and Tammy Wynette, which was fantastic, and then I was headlining my own shows.
“I do a mixture of everything and the people who come to my shows hear a mix of my hits and other songs in my own style. I also love audience participation and getting everybody up and singing along.”
Rose-Marie will be performing on April 22. Tickets cost £19.50.
