The pop legend thrilled fans young and old with hits from a career spanning five decades.

His voice, personality and showmanship shone through as he performed hit after hit on a giant stage which took a specialist team five days to build at the London Road ground.

Ably supported by young London based singer/songwriter Jake Isaac this was a gig that many in Peterborough hope will lead to future concerts of this magnitude at the Posh ground.
