Nicky Chance-Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “This gig is going to be a huge amount of fun.

"Rick is a true British pop legend, and we still can’t get enough of him more than 35 years after he burst onto the scene.

“His recent performances with stars like Foo Fighters and at Glastonbury this year have won him legions of new, younger fans and we all know we’re going to see the courtyard full of the biggest smiles on the night.”
