Rick posted on Instagram: "This has always been a dream to play this iconic festival and I can’t wait to bring our big show to the Big Top stage!"

"However, there will also be mixed emotions of both pride and sadness for me, as it was on this very stage that dad played his last ever gig on UK soil…rest assured dad, we will do you proud."

Rick, who is also a racing driver, is a fireball of energy on stage, and has a talent for engaging with his audience, wowing big crowds for over ten years.
