The two-hour live disco experience, Brutus Gold's Love Train, was recorded at Carriageworks Theatre in partnership with Leeds City Council earlier this month.

Led by "Puerto Rican Love God and guardian of masculinity" DJ Brutus Gold, the show was packed with extravagant dance performances and an A-Z of disco classics.

The event was streamed to people across the world and featured the premiere of The Brutus Gold Affair, a new Love Train dance troupe.

People in Leeds can now party along to the performance on New Year's Eve as the show is released for digital download.

Household mixing in private setting is banned in Leeds and organisers hope the event will bring a smile to households celebrating safely the New Year safely at home.

Speaking backstage after the show, Brutus Gold said: “Geez, it was great to be back in Leeds and on-stage with my disco cohorts.

“Of course we wanted to be playing in front of a live audience but to have our fans streaming in their thousands from Leeds to Lima, Spain to Santiago, Newcastle to New York, and Australia to Italy, they were all there.

The show is now available for digital download

“We wanted to create our own vibe and reach people all over the world and join hands digitally. And we did it!

“We had a few technical glitches at the start, I'm from an analogue era in a digital world.

“But the love from our audience and the power of disco got us back on the Love Train track pretty quickly.

“I was proud of my dancers and my team who have helped make this show happen.

"We hope this virtual show will bring some laughter and joy to the world in these dark times. So, Dress UP, Get DOWN and PARTY with the whole family on board the legendary LOVE TRAIN!”

A three-day rental pass of the performance costs £7.99 and is half price for NHS staff and key workers.
