He will play at The Hepworth Wakefield’s new contemporary art space, The Calder, which has been transformed from a former textile mill.

The gig will form part of The Calder’s opening programme of events and include a screening of Mr Nelson’s film Memory Codex, which looks back at Wakefield during the 1950s and 1960s.

The performance will raise money for a project to renovate former city centre music venue Unity Hall, where Be-Bop Deluxe once played.

Mr Nelson’s solo concert will take place on Friday, September 20.
