He sang the opening lines on the original release of the Band Aid single Do They Know It’s Christmas, and appeared at Wembley Stadium for Live Aid the following summer in July 1985.

Since the mid-90s he has continued to write music and perform with his band Los Pacaminos.

His concert in Lytham is being presented by Lytham Festival organisers and promoters Cuffe and Taylor as a taster of the acts appearing at the festival’s Mix Tape night on Friday, August 5. Director Peter Taylor said: “We are delighted that Lytham Festival is presenting Paul Young for one night only.

“His name and voice is synonymous with the sound of the 80s, and I am sure there are many of his fans who would absolutely love to see him in the intimate setting of Lowther Pavilion.

“This presents us with the perfect taster of what is going to be an incredible night at Lytham Festival, when an eclectic mix of artists take to the stage in the main Festival Arena on Lytham Green for our Mix Tape night.”
