Anthony, who will also be providing a disco at the Blitz Night after the live performances, added: "Steve Strange is one of my heroes.

"I have met him twice over the last 12 months.

"One time I purchased a VIP ticket at one of his shows so that I could meet him. One of Steve's clubs was called Blitz Club in London. To get one of the biggest night club owners to come along and perform at one of our Blitz Nights is brilliant."
