Two years later than originally planned, Michael Bublé is finally set to play Hatfield House this weekend.
The chart-topping Canadian showman was due to headline at Hatfield Park in the summer of 2020 as part of a nationwide tour of stately homes, historic venues and cricket grounds.
That tour was postponed until 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and then rescheduled again until this summer.
The Grammy Award-winning global megastar is now due to bring his An Evening with Michael Bublé tour to Hatfield House on Saturday, July 23, 2022.
Following the release earlier this year of latest number one album Higher, fans can expect Bublé to perform tracks such as Feeling Good, Haven't Met You Yet, and Cry My A River.

Hatfield House's website states that the car park for An Evening with Michael Bublé opens at 4pm.

The show is due to end around 10.30pm.
There will be car parking available on site. Use the following address if using Sat Nav: Hatfield Park, Great North Road, Hatfield AL9 5PG.
There is a five to 10 minute walk from the car park to concert arena along an uneven path.

Ticket holders are urged to leave enough time to access the arena and to undergo security checks.
AEG Presents' guide to the event states that there is no re-admission after entry.
Fans at earlier concerts on the current tour have complained about the parking arrangements at those venues.
A number of ticket holders attending the gig at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire missed the start of the show, while there were complaints about leaving the car park after Monday's event at Chewton Glen in Hampshire, according to the BBC.
Michael Bublé fans also complained of traffic 'chaos' at the Blickling Estate show, according to the Eastern Daily Press, with long delays getting in and out of the Norfolk venue.

According to AEG Presents, no food or drink is permitted to be brought into the arena, with the exception of water in unopened plastic containers of up to 500ml.
There will be a range of food and drink available to purchase on site, as well as free drinking water, according to the organisers' frequently asked questions.
