Brutus said: “Hellllooooooooo Yorrrrrrkshyyyyerrrrr!!!!
”Leeds has a special place in my heart as it is where the Love Train was first performed back in 1993 and it is always an honour to be able to take to the stage in front of our loyal fans who have followed us over the years.
“We are thrilled that dynamite disco diva Gwen Dickey will be joining us on stage and we will be pulling out all the stops to make this a memorable occasion for the city and encourage everyone to don their best 70’s disco outfits and make it a real night to remember!"
