In the current climate, it’s quite the feat to have a career that lasts over 7 weeks – Petula Clark’s has spanned 7 different decades, and still shows no signs of slowing down. Best known for singing one of the best pop songs of all time with Downtown, she’s a woman with many more strings to her bow than that one incredible hit – it’s not exactly easy to sell 68 million records, no matter how many years you’ve been going at it. This incredibly rare live performance is in support of her new album Lost in You, which even features a cover of ‘Imagine‘ – fitting, given she was one of John Lennon’s favourite singers. Even this far ahead, tickets have nearly sold out, so be quick as it’ll be a while before she comes back round again.

Wed 2 Oct, The Lowry, The Quays, Salford, M50, 8pm, £19.50 – £89,
