They were due to perform at Lytham Festival in 2017 but had to cancel at the last minute when a band member was taken seriously ill on site.

The Sheffield band were formed in 1977 and became global megastars when their hit ‘Don’t You Want Me’ reached number one in both the UK and US.

They have had five albums and eight singles in the UK Top 10 and have sold more than 20 million records worldwide.

Globally celebrated superstar Kylie will headline on Friday performing a series of career-spanning hits from her unparalleled back catalogue.

Brit singer-songwriter Sophie Ellis Bextor will support and Scissor Sisters’ Ana Matronic will warm up the crowd.

While Saturday night will see legendary rock superstar Rod Stewart headlining with his unique voice and styling bringing a show which promises to be filled with both classics and new hits.

The 73-year-old played to almost 20,000 people at Blackpool FC’s Bloomfield Road stadium in 2014 and he has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide.

On September 28, Stewart released his 30th studio album, Blood Red Roses,
