Pioneer of the UK urban scene and multi-award winning DJ royalty, Trevor Nelson, has announced a long-awaited return to Weston for a night of classic R&B and soul.

He will be performing at the Tropicana on December 3.

With a career that has spanned decades and genres, Trevor Nelson holds an irrefutable cornerstone in UK music history.

From his very beginnings on London pirate radio nurturing what would become Kiss FM, through to his work on The Soul Show and his prime-time BBC Radio One and One Extra weekend stints, Trevor has introduced listeners across the nation to cutting-edge sounds from the worlds of soul, R&B, reggae and beyond.

Immediately identifiable as a much-loved presenting personality too, Trevor joined the ranks of MTV in 1998 to host their flagship R&B show The Lick for 11 years on MTV Base, while also being granted the honour of hosting the first ever MTV Africa Awards from Abuja in Nigeria.

In recognition of his years of dedicated service to the music he has committed his life to, Trevor has won numerous plaudits throughout his career including four Mobos the Special Gold Lifetime Achievement award for his services to broadcasting at the 2010 Sony Radio Academy Awards, and even an MBE for his work with the millennium volunteers.

The show will be sure to feature an inimitable blend of sleek and sultry records with soul as lifted from the past three decades of his career
