Voted the sixth best guitarist ever in a BBC RAdio listeners poll, he topped the blues charts with Full Circle and The Outsider.

In 2014, after his liver transplant, he said: “To play my music for people has become even more important to me. When I think about looking out into the crowds of people and connecting with everyone on a soul level, and sharing the experience of music with them, this is what keeps me fighting to get back.”

The show begins at 7.30pm and tickets at £25 are available from the box office on 01727 844488 or online.

* American biographical drama I Saw The Light will be showing at the Arena next Wednesday and Thursday, July 20 and 21.

Directed, written, and produced by Marc Abraham, it stars Tom Hiddleston as country music legend Hank Williams and Elizabeth Olsen as his first wife, Audrey.
