Earlier this year the singer said he’s “been working for months” on the solo show.

“All of a Sudden with a Boom Bang A Bang the Eurovision Song Contest asked Frankie to reform for a one-off exclusive performance at their Opening Ceremony, it’s all gone Ballistic ever since we said yes,” he added.

In May 2023 Frankie Goes to Hollywood reunited in their hometown of Liverpool, 36 years after their final performance.

Their appearance saw diehard fans head to the city to see the trailblazing LGBTQ+ band reunite for the first time since 1987.

The band kept their Eurovision set short and sweet, playing only one song – “Welcome to the Pleasuredome” – to an eagerly-awaiting crowd of 25,000 fans.

Their huge breakthrough debut “Relax” was one of the decade’s most successful and controversial singles.

It was famously banned by the BBC, who refused to play it due to the perceived sexual content.

The song went on to make history alongside their second single “Two Tribes” as both songs sat at chart positions number one and two simultaneously.
