The star’s appearance follows her successful headline slot of last year’s Manchester Pride: The Big Weekend.

Melanie is of course known for her iconic Spice Girls’ discography, featuring hits like Wannabe, Say You’ll Be There and Stop. The group have sold 85 million records worldwide.

As a solo star, she scored two number ones in the UK: Never Be the Same Again and also I Turn To You.

In 2016, Melanie released her critically well-received seventh studio album, Version of Me, along with the lead single Anymore [above]. The album charted in territories around the world, and even peaked at number one in Brazil.
