‘Elvis, Westlife, Bon Jovi’ – The past and present stars you want to see in Barrow

EVERYONE has an artist they’d love to see live – but which ones would you invite to come see your hometown?

We asked our readers “which band/singer would you like to see playing Barrow?” and we were overwhelmed with responses.

Many wanted to invite mega pop stars to the city, although some are sadly no longer with us, such as Bon Jovi, David Bowie, Westlife and Elvis Presley.
