Just weeks after the curtain came down on the 2016 edition of its award-winning Legends show, the venue has revealed the line-up for the 2017 version.

next year marks the 19th consecutive Blackpool summer season of Trevor Chance’s Legends and it is due to be the biggest and best version yet.

Popular demand sees the return of tributes to Elvis Presley (performed by 20-year-old newcomer Tommy Holland), Michael Jackson (the Blackpool debut of Ed Jackson) and Tom Jones – and they will be joined for the first time by Amy Winehouse.
