Peter Andre and Jason Manford look forward to a Norwich welcome

Superstar Peter Andre has chosen Norwich for his return to the world of the big stage performance after months out with illness.

He was forced to cancel gigs in Scotland and Plymouth in the past months, and has revealed how the show at the 3,000 capacity Norfolk Showground's Exhibition Hall on Saturday evening will be something of a comeback.

'This is the first real gig I'm doing since I had these problems.

'I would say it is a mini come back to kick start the next year, ready for the big arena tour I've got planned.

'I'm well on the road to recovery now, my fans in Norwich shouldn't worry, I'll be ready.'

The English born Australian musician says fans can expect songs from his first shot at a music career in the 1990s, Christmas sing-alongs and some from his post I'm a Celebrity comeback albums including his latest work, Accelerate, released November last year.

'I'm just really looking forward to coming up there and feeding off the love from the crowd. Looking forward to meeting my norwichians.'
