Pop singer Edwyn Collins is to perform at the BBC's Electric Proms later this month - his first gig since suffering a life-threatening illness.
Collins will be performing two more London concerts in November
The 48-year-old, best known for A Girl Like You, will perform tracks from his current album, Home Again, at Dingwalls in Camden, London, on 28 October.
"I'm back and raring to go," he said. "How exciting to be in my old world again, with my band and among friends."
The Scottish performer suffered two brain haemorrhages in 2005.
He then spent six months in hospital after a surgical scar became infected with the MRSA bug.
"To have Edwyn performing for us is a real privilege," said Electric Proms director Lorna Clarke.
"I think it brings something really special to the whole festival."
The singer's appearance will be followed by two more London dates in November.
Collins was a leading figure on the alternative Scottish scene in the late 1970s and 1980s, forming his first band, Nu-Sonics, when he was 17.
They became Orange Juice, who briefly broke into the mainstream with Rip It Up in 1983.
He went on to pursue a solo career, making an impact with A Girl Like You, a Top 10 hit in seven countries in 1995.
His most recent single, You'll Never Know, was released in September.
