SOUL legend Percy Sledge is coming to Holmfirth.
The 77-year-old singer – famed for his 1966 hit When A Man Loves A Woman – will perform at The Picturedrome on Saturday, July 12.
It is one of only two UK dates he is performing this year with his band The New Aces.
Percy was at the height of his fame during the 1960s.
Although When A Man Loves A Woman was his best-known track, he was no one-hit wonder. He also charted with Take Time To Know Her, Warm And Tender Love, Out of Left Field, It Tears Me Up and I’ll Be Your Everything.
He has been entertaining audiences for 50 years. He made his major comeback nine years ago, with his album Blue Night.
It won a Grammy nomination, The Blues Foundation’s WC Handy Award for the best soul/blues album of the year.
He also won the Rhythm and Blues Foundation’s Pioneer Award.
Tickets for the Picturedrome gig cost £20 and can be bought by calling into the venue any night between 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Alternatively, visit www.picturedrome.net
