A PAIR of Prestwich music icons delighted their neighbours with an impromptu concert given on their driveway to spread joy during the coronavirus outbreak.

Renowned singing duo Maxine and Brian Warner gave the thrilling show after announcing it on their neighbours' Whatsapp group.

They did so in appreciation of the community spirit shown by people in their Prestwich neighbourhood, who have been shopping for isolated people, dropping off little gifts and all pulling together; they said.

A PA system was set up and the stage set so that everyone could hear, dance and singalong in the sunshine.

Strict social-distancing was observed, however, as neighbours brought out their chairs to sit in their front gardens.

Dressed in glitzy outfits, the duo, formerly of The Lemon Tree Band, then performed popular classics from musicals, opera and chart hits, before a flag-waving finale finale of Land of Hope and Glory ­— complete with plenty of audience participation.

Video footage of the performance has since gone viral and the duo are already in demand for another performance very soon.

They said: "It felt very emotional and inspirational to bring joy and happiness not to just all our neighbours but to everyone who has seen it.

"Having had all our bookings cancelled for the foreseeable future we thought what better way to keep on singing that to entertain all our wonderful neighbours and keeping spirits high in these uncertain times".
