Isle of Wight to welcome Shakin' Stevens

Music fans on an Isle of Wight holiday may be keen to take in a performance by popular singer Shakin' Stevens when he arrives on the island for a special gig.

The star is to take to the stage at Planet Ice Arena in Ryde as part of his 30th anniversary UK tour - and he will be accompanied by a ten-strong backing band, the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

Stevens - who is the 16th highest selling artist in the history of the UK charts - will be looking to wow the crowds with a mix of old and new songs, as he belts out fan favourites and numbers from his next album to be released next year.

The gig will take place on November 17th and is likely to be a hot ticket, as his performance at Glastonbury 2008 drew the biggest-ever attendance for a Pyramid Stage opening slot.

Well-known hits by Stevens include This Ole House and Merry Christmas Everyone.
