A LEADING star of the dance music scene will sing at a Leigh nightclub later this month.

Kelly Llorenna (pictured), who has had several top-10 hits, appeared on various Clubland compilation CDs and sung to 12,000 people at Manchester’s MEN Arena, will play the headlining slot at the town’s Pulp nightclub on May 25.

Some of Kelly’s best-known tracks include Entrance, Set You Free, top-five hit True Love Never Dies and a cover version of Tell It To My Heart, which got to number two in the charts.

Manchester-based singer Kelly first shot to prominence as part of the dance group N-Trance in the mid-1990s. but the Pulp night is the first time she has played for Leigh’s music fans since a gig in 2003.

Club promoter Stuart Connor said: “Kelly’s a well-known name on the dance music scene so we’re delighted she’s playing this local gig in Leigh and it’s going to be a very good night.

“I managed to get the gig arranged as I’m signed to the same record label in Blackburn that she is.

“We’ve had a few big gigs and nights recently with top DJs, so it’s good to be putting the town on the musical map.”

There will also be a packed line-up of local DJs spinning the best in dance tunes from when the doors open at around 10pm, with Kelly taking to the stage at 1am.

Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Cheers sports bar, on King Street, from Thursday to Sunday.
