The band dedicated their set to the bassist, who died only last week.

The former rock star had died in hospital after contracting a bug on holiday in Cancun, Mexico.

Les said prior to the gig: “I won’t let him disappear. We all loved Alan, he was one of the original Rollers.

“He got on with everybody and everyone lit up when he strolled on to the stage. He was a laid back and cool guy.”
