  2. E donaldson says:

    I remember seeing “all the fun of the fair” on a Guide pack holiday in London back in 2010. My guide leader was a fan so we all waited at the stage door and I got a photo with David Essex just to show my mum. She’d been such a huge fan of yours as a teen and wanted to go to the show too but it never came to Leeds. Her adoration has never changed. My mum is terminally ill now and little brings her pleasure. But today for the first time in ages I cried happy tears as i watched my mum try to sing along to “hold me close” with a big smile on her face. I found this website while trying to find some more songs to play her tomorrow and I just wanted to thank you for making her happy all these years. It’s made such a difference to see her smile again.

    Dear David

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you but I’m emailing on behalf of my friend and colleague, Sue, who has just undergone a gruelling round of chemotherapy. She is on the mend now but is very tired. She is a super fan of yours and has followed your career throughout the years. Sue and I came to your concert when you were last in Oxford and had a wonderful evening (we both saw you previously a few years before that in Oxford) but Sue has seen you lots more times over the years too.
    I wondered if there was any chance at all of a signed photo to cheer Sue up at this time in her life? I totally appreciate how busy you are and how many requests you must get of this nature.
    In any case, thank you for all the years of music and for the happiness you have given so many people over the years.
    Very best wishes.
    Frances (on behalf of Sue)

    Well we waved our bithday banner At the concert, Although got bit fed up after 20 mins arm was aching so put it away. Good news a few nice ladies behind me asked who’s birthday is it , David essex I replied happily , his birthday is tomorrow . so off started something similar to Chinese whisper, I just about heared …

    its his birthday tomorrow etc etc ….

    Ha ha But what was really amazing ….was what happened at the end unfortunately had to leave as you ended your last song avoid the volume of people and cars exiting the park my sister and our friend had to get back to Peterborough and Wisbech as we got mid way to the exit. Heard every one singing you happy birthday I stopped turn back o look and just saw 100 100 of amazing fans both in the tent and outside the sourrounding area ..
    It was incredible and I laughed to myself thinking bet not even the queen has had so many people all in one moment sing happy birthday absolutely wonderful I wonder how that must feel can’t even imagine, most of us at the most will in one life time have about 10/20/50 possibly 100 people in one go sing it …. must admit I always feel slightly embarrassed and uncomfortable when I’m at the receiving end I usually shy away and want to hide ha ha ha ha

    It was a great day and my friend carlamaria who has never seen you live but always been a fan (was visiting from Dubai) loved it and thought you were amazing and so eloquent …so thank you for such a great evening in Southend

  48. Janet Morgan says:

    Hello David,
    A few years back when my late husband was working for BBC Essex, he and I met you in your dressing room at the Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliff on Sea Essex. You were great fun and extremely charming and although I am sure you will not remember the occasion when he interviewed you, I still remember you signing a CD for me of which I still cherish. I am hoping to be able to get tickets for Garon’s Park next Sunday and to see late husband was Ric Morgan.
    Kind Regards,

  49. Sally Lowe says:

  52. Lianne Fowler says:

    I have been a fan since “Gonna Make You A Star” but cannot remember the first time I heard it. I was born in 1968, obviously well after you came to fame, but as I was growing up, I remember seeing you in “Silver Dream Racer” and have loved it ever since. Would love to hear from you.

  53. Mark McStea says:


    I’m a freelance UK rock journalist and I’m writing a book on the early 70s glam era. I wondered if you’d be interested in an interview – could be by email or phone – whatever you preferred.


    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Mark,
      Thank you for you’re message, unfortunately David’s not doing any interviews at the moment.

  54. Anna says:

    Dear David I just realised your birthday is day after the 70 concert in the park .southend on sea i will be there at the front and I treated my sister Caterina for her 60th so I’m hoping depending on my creative abilitity (not too good which is bad really considering I’m Anglo Italian and should be by blood quiet creative considering that heritage ha ha ) to make a banner with happy birthday to you and wave it like mad hoping you’ll notice it amongst the 1000 of eager faces trying to attract your attention ha ha . But what I really was writing to you here about before I got carried away was if you can and have time during you short appearance at the park concert wish my very special kind if at times irratinging beautiful sister a happy 60th please please and just to be extra cheeky please say hello to me too I’m Anna ….
    Thank you so very much if you can and if not then thank you for reading this slightly mad message and at least thinking about my words Kind regards Anna

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Anna, thank you for your message. I hope you both have a fantastic time, unfortunately David doesn’t do shout outs during concerts as he has so many requests. He’d be more than happy to send a signed photo for your sister if you can leave an address on here, it won’t be published.
      Enjoy the concert.

    Thank you so much David and all your team for helping arrange for you to send me my birthday card that arrived in the post today for my 65th Birthday. I am over the moon with it. Has made my day. I was stupid enough to fall over last night whilst out looking for my lovely cat Spearmint, and am now very battered and bruised. Stupid person that I am , this really cheered me up. Lots of love Jan xxx

    thanks in anticipation


  59. Ailsa Denise Cave says:

    Hi David have a lovely Fathers Day (don’t forget the sausages!) Enjoy the World Cup and Golf coverage too.

  60. Jan Simpson says:

    I know this is really cheeky but can I request for myself a Birtday Card from David for my 65th Birthday on the 28th of this month (June). It would make my Birthday perfect and soooooo Special ???? I have followed David for more years than I can’t remember and seen him more timescale than I can remember. 3 years ago I got to have my photo taken with him after War of the Worlds and 2 year’s shows she lucky to have a few more taken when I went to his Book Signing in Reading. When’s he looked up st me and said ‘I know your face’ I nearly landed by his feet under the table, my knees trembled so much. Thank you so much and hope my 65th wish can be made come true. Love to David, Susan and all his gang from Jan xx

    • Essex Admin says:

    Hi David’s team, my mum Helen is a super fan of David and has been listening to his songs from when she was a teenager and has been to so many of his concerts. It is her 50th Birthday in July and I am wondering if it would be possible to get a signed photo of David. I am her daughter and I know this would really make her day, if it’s possible to get a signed photo I plan to frame it alongside the vinyl of Gonna Make You a Star (her favourite David Essex song). I really hope you can help me with this special birthday surprise and thank you David for making my mum so happy through your music! Best wishes Katie

    Hi David,
    We share a birthday!
    Just to let you know, that we are having a jam at our caravan park near Whitby to celebrate my (our) birthday , with a barbeque and a few drinks, would be lovely to see you there if you are available to have a chilled afternoon with a bit of a sing along. No pressure! But would be amazing if you could! Saw you in Sheffield last year, I was the one with the album thrust under your nose that I got signed by you.
    Be there if you can, you’d love it!!
    Best wishes

    Hi David, Just been passed Garon Park, looking forward to 22nd July! Was on way to Shoeburyness to collect moses basket! I am going to be a Nanna! The family I got it from had a son called Sonny, and in the car on way home, “Heart Beats like A Drum” was playing! Happy me! “Crashing Like A Cymbol, Burning Like The Sun”…!x Sally (Essex)
    I feel like Silver Dream Racer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  64. Sheila says:

    Hi David, I am not sure if this message will get to you but just wanted to say thank you as my daughter met you on Sunday at my grandsons football match. I know you must get sick of people asking for photographs but she knew how much it would mean to me so thanks for agreeing to have a picture taken with her it really made my day.
    I have seen you many time the first being when I was young and you were playing in Liverpool and the Real Thing were your supporting act. I came to see you in September at Butlins and again the Real Thing also happened to be playing, sadly Eddie has now passed away and this only makes you realise how we should grasp and cherish every day. I love everything about the seventies and the music from that time. I only hope you and all the other musicians from that time, who still perform know how much it means to people like me and that your music has helped me get through many a sad or dark time. So Thank you again because what might seem a little thing like having your photo taken is actually the world to someone like me. Also I hope everything works out well for lady and her sister who wrote in the last comment Love Sheila xxx

  70. Patricia O'Shea says:

    I was shocked when I realized David Essex was you!!! lol! I lived in Manor Rd. buildings from about 1953 or 54 to about 1961. I remember when I was about 10 and my brother Robert 11 or 12 and you about 13 all digging giant holes and trying to dig tunnels over “the mems” (Memorial Grounds) and you always brought all the equipment; shovels, torch etc and you told us we were cousins. Ginny Cook was my nans sister (Eliza O’Shea) maiden name Holland. We moved to Canada in 1966 with our parents so didn’t know you as David Essex. I only found out recently that David Essex is a second cousin (or is it cousin once removed?) It’s funny when I first saw you doing “Rock On” on TV while holidaying in England I thought you looked familiar! no idea at that time you were David Cook:) Do you have any memories of these times? I’m pretty sure you were living with Ginny Cook at the time for a while. All the best, rock on! Pat

  71. Cazz says:

    Just a quick question

  73. Kathryn Palermo says:

    Lately, I’ve been buying my favorite songs from the 60’s and 70’s. Luckily, I found your song, bought it, and looked you up. Apparently, living in the US has prevented me from seeing so much of your work. …ah, perhaps I will get a chance. Best, Kathryn

  74. Chryssi Stout-Yonkins says:

    Hello! I have a simple question…I recently sent David an email to the address on this site. Will he actually get to read it? I would be completely thrilled! Thanks so much for your time.


    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Chryssi, I don’t seem to be able to find your e-mail. Would you be kind enough to send it again and I’ll make sure David see’s it, or post it in here and it won’t be published.

    Hi David
    May I ask, are you actually appearing in person on the 22/7/18 2pm at Garon park Southend . I actually overheard two ladies in Waitrose Billericay Essex talking about it near the veggi isle ha ha I didn’t want to appear rude eavesdropping on there conversation although i definetley was ha ha so I moved away pretending I wasn’t and may have mis heared that it could be a tribute to you and not you in the flesh
    I live in wickford so that would be great for me as practically on my door step .However I can’t see anywhere stating that you are . So I’m totally confused (not that it takes a lot to confuse me at the best of times) please can you clarify or confirm yay o nay to the above date . I would be very happy to know rush to buy tickets spread the word and stop scanning the internet in frustration trying to source info and tickets

    Thanking you and Essex admin in advance for any replies …. have a happy sunny Sunday

    Hi David

    A big fan since the 70’s when I first saw you on Top of The Pops. Loved all your films and the web site is great.

    Is it true you started out as a drummer In The Everons that later became The China Plates? I was wondering who else was in the band?

  84. Tracey Shearing says:

    Hi David & all,
    Just a quick note to say Thank you for the time you all took to give us Davids Facebook page. It seems strange without it being there & i’m quite sad that it no longer is but realise how hard work it must have been but,onwards & upwards at least we have Twitter & the Website. Please don’t disappear completely though!
    Appreciative thoughts to each of you.
    Best wishes

    • Angie says:

      I agree with you Tracey it’s weird that it is no longer there, feels like something is missing and it’s a bit of a shame because a lot of David’s fans don’t use Twitter…But I guess there is a good reason for taking it down.

    Hello David Essex I’m hoping to go to India soon volentire to help in an orphanage which belongs to mother meera however I’m suppose to bring something to the table ha ha have no teaching skills what’s so ever so really not sure what I can do apart from cooking cupcakes I would bring them prepackaged ingredients and imagine I’ll be using goats milk hopefully chicken eggs ha ha After all it would be something different a moment of pure fun . Hope I’m not cooking in those clay pots that definetly would be a challenge especially trying to get those cupcakes to rise ummmm. I read some years ago that you spent time in Africa within a similar situation and was wondering what did you do during your stay . And young wise one do you have any suggestions ? Please don’t say teach them songs as I can’t sing for love of money and I honestly think I’m toned deaf ha ha thanking you in advance for any helpful advice

  95. Julie says:

    Hi, been a huge fan for many years & attended most shows both tours & other projects like Mutiny, Robinson Crusoe, All the Fun of the Fair & Boogie Nights so very excited about Elf! But can admin explain to me how the offer of discounted seats would work?- would I need to be an official fan club member & how would payment actually be made? In this day & age of inflated prices & extortionate booking fees I think this offer is a really nice gesture, whether I am personally able to take advantage of it or not!
    Any information would be much appreciated.
    Thank you

  96. Janice Prime says:

  121. David Champion says:

    Crazy notion on Xmas eve but I’m the son of one of your biggest fans… Unfortunately she doesn’t do crowds and has concentrated on raising her family over doing things she used to love like coming to see you perform again… Think my mum saw you last in 1970 something

    My name is David Champion (Guess where my first name comes from??? ) and I am the son of Christine Champion

    Like I mentioned she is amazed by you and on many occasions we’ve both sat up watching the dvd of yourself live at the Albert Hall and cutting back to ‘oh what a circus’ several times (which actually turns out to be quite rare apparantly… No sign of it online anywhere! Not that live performance anyway or any of that gig… So the dvd made me a hero of a son in her eyes)

    I’m not sure exactly where I’m going with this message exactly…
    I just want the perfect gift for my mum this year because she’s an absolute hero

    I’m aware you’re a legend and legends have tight schedules but had to try regardless
    Obviously you’re not gonna pop over for tea and hobnobs but if you could do something like send a message to my email (she’s old school! Internet is the devil) but yea even something as simple as an email saying hi to her would make her year!!!! If not her life!!!

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones
    I’ll be bringing her to see you next time you solo perform hopefully

    Thanks for taking the time to read

    Yours hopefully
    David Champion

    • Essex Admin says:

      Apologies David for not getting back to you sooner. Would your mum like a signed photo? If so please leave your Mums name and an address to send it to. Your details won’t be published.

  141. Anna says:

    Morning David

    I noticed somewhere haha can’t remember where but I came across a small trailer for documentary on yourself, however I don’t think it’s actually live to view the completed programme .can you please if you get time either confirm this is not yet live or if it is where can I view it . Really interested to view the path you walked and how it all lead to where you are today .peoples lives are always interesting but especially well know personalities because you look at pictures of anyone really as young children and in that moment they have no idea or the people around them how there lives are going to pan out ……And I suppose for those of us whom have walked a relatively sedentary life it’s always fascinating to watch or read about others much more eventful lives or should I say charmed lives ha

  142. tracey shearing says:

    David, thank you for an amazing concert at Cricket St Thomas last Week. You & the band were on top form. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was worth the epic journey to get there! And if you are ever at a loose end, job wise, the offer of a job still stands you’d make a great Counseller, my lads would love it!

  143. Sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all,could you tell me if there’s going to be a 2018 calendar please. Always have one for Xmas off kids!! Fingers crossed. X

  150. Sue Lis says:

    We had an amazing time at Birmingham & Leeds, then everyone said we were mad to travel 8 hours to get to Brighton. They were totally wrong, even Storm Brian couldn’t deter us. What a night, David, you rocked Brighton Centre, amazing. So looking forward to “next time.”

  151. Mary mullett says:

    Just been to Wembley,I absolutely loved Oh What A Circus.Mary.

  152. Jan Simpson says:

    Hi David, Had my ticket for months but due to a foot injury 5 months ago that refuses to stop hurting, I am off work today and instead of going up to London to see you at Wembley tonight, I am sat with foot up in splint resting it. After a cortisone injection on Monday I was hoping it would be better but sadly I can’t walk without excruciating pain. I am GUTTED to say the least. At least I am lucky that I have met you twice, and had my photo taken with you , the last time in Feb of this year when you came to Reading for your book signing. So sorry I can’t be there tonight. You are a true Gent and have brought me so much fun over all my years of seeing you in concerts and stage shows. Love Jan from Reading xx

  153. Sue (hull) says:

    Hi David and the band,
    As always you were the best by far on Sunday night in Leeds.
    You only had to listen to the crowd to know that.
    Rock on!

  154. Shirley says:

    Hi David, we’ve just home from the concert in my husband’s place of birth, Liverpool. He married a Londoner! Really enjoyed the show but you were the out and out star of it for us. Was really sad not to have the chance to hear more of your songs as we obviously did at the Liverpool Philomonic at the end of you final tour. Adore Only a Winters tale although it makes me cry – even over the sausages if necessary! Didn’t seem right not being able to hear you sing It will be ok, it’s such a beautiful and reassuring song with your special way of singing it. I truly hope to see you again one day. Take care, enjoy life and thank you for years of pure joy listening to your voice and seeing the twinkle in those blue eyes, love Shirley (and the Scouser who took me, Steve!) xx

  155. Karen Day says:

    Hi David

    Had a great time on 14th at Birmingham. All acts were great but you were by far the best.


  156. Julie says:

    Hi David
    You were fabulous in Leeds last night. Hot chocolate, The Osmonds and Suzi Quattro were also good but your session was by far the best. Really hope you will never stop singing with your band. Take care. Love always Julie (Hull) xxx

    I have been a big fan of David since 1972.
    I have brought alot of David’s merchandise records, dvd’s,books and tour items etc over the years but their is one thing I would love to own, one of David’s old waist coats , I would have it framed and have it proudly placed on my wall. Could I obtain one of David’s old waist coats, I would gladly pay the cost for any arrangement.
    Many thanks

    I am really looking forward to seeing you and your band in Legends Live in October at the Leeds Arena.
    I have been a devoted fan since 1974 and have seen you perform many a time, I still get as excited to see you as I did in my teenage years. You are a very special man to me and always will be.
    Love always Julie (from Hull).

  220. Julie Evans says:

    Since seeing David in the original London cast of Godspell I have seen a further three productions, two of which were very disappointing but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed a matinee performance at the Roedean Theatre last weekend. It captured some of the fun and emotion of the original, with a lot of energy expended by the talented young performers. The day was made even more special by having an interval conversation with the ever-affable Tim Newman. Well done to everyone connected to it!

  221. Janice prime says:

    Hello David it’s your birthday in a few days could I send you a birthday card it would mean the world to me I’ve been a life long fan for many many yrs lots love always Janice prime xxxxxxx

  222. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, just wondering what you’re doing for your 70th birthday, I can remember queuing for tickets for a show the year you were 40 and two fans had you a cake made. I hope the family will be doing something special for you, you deserve it , enjoy what ever you do, all my love Kay x

  223. Lynn maidment says:

    I have loved david essex from when I was a very young girl aged 58 now, but only got the chance to see him live once, in all the fun of the fair when I lived near to Eastbourne. Am now living in lancing near worthing, and disabled, so probably won t ever get the chance to go again, but seeing that show was the best evening of my whole life, so thank you all so much for at least making that one trip possible.

  224. Karen Day says:

    What a lovely 60th birthday present my youngest sister got for me, a copy of Faded Glory with a personal message signed by David. Thank you David and I know it is a little early but happy 70th birthday to you on 23rd.

  225. Lesley Danks says:

    Hi, Late last year I requested a signed photo of David. Up to this date I have not received the signed photo. Please let me know if I need to pay for postage as I do live in Australia and maybe the signed photos are only for British fans.
    Thanking you.

    Hi guys,
    Just wanted to let you know that I ordered the missing you set a while back, it has never arrived, this morning I ordered all the fun of the fair and I sent it to a different address but I also noticed its being handled directly by you now, is that correct? Hopefully this one will arrive.

    • Essex Admin says:

      The Fair DVD is handled by us yes, but the Missing you tour package isn’t. Please get in touch with
      Nyquest who you’d have bought it from as we don’t have any record of the sales. Hope they can help, if you’re still having problems let us know.
      Kind regards- D E Management

  227. Julie Waterhouse says:

    Hi David and Team David. My mum has been a huge fan of David’s for as long as I can remember and I’m not young haha. My mum and I are going to the legends tour in October at Wembley, I was wondering if there is any chance of a quick meet and picture for her, she would be so pleased if she could. She met David briefly at a book signing but didn’t get a photo.

    Her name is Linda and she is 70 next year x Thank you

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Julie, Unfortunately the exit to the Arena isn’t easily accessible, so it’s not likely that you’ll see David after the show. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Kind regards D E Management

  228. John Holman says:

    Hi David, I’m researching a old recording released by David and Rozza “Time Of Our Life”. Written by Arnold, Martin, Morrow and Hiller. Can you confirm if this David on this release is you?

    We are meeting up again in September at Thorsby Hall for your show.
    Thank-you .

  232. Julie Feeney says:

    Hello all,
    Is David doing any upcoming TV shows/interviews or radio shows? I thought I would ask as I always seem to miss the ones he does do.
    Thanks Julie

  233. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, Just wanted to say i got your CD’s/DVD the other week & its brilliant, i wasn’t able to come & see you on your final tour, with you not able to make it to Kent. Watching the DVD it was like i was there with you, i was singing away really enjoyed it, some of the old songs, brilliant, they brought back so many good memories. I remember you singing Ships That Pass In The Night, years ago at the Grand Theatre, Leeds, I have seen you about 44 times since 1978 & have enjoyed every show that you’ve done. Will miss you not touring anymore, you are a true gentlemen David. Take care Love Bev xx

  234. Sally says:

    Hi David, this made me happy – My Daughter works as a part time care Assistant in a Nursing Home, while at college, she loves it! Gonna Make You A Star, came on the radio, and a resident that doesn’t speak, let alone sing, knew the words and sang along! The Best ones, are always on your mind!! I’m Coming Home Soon!…. Love Sally (Essex)xx

  235. Sheila says:

    Will you ver release boogie nights on d v d

  236. Mal Richards says:

    Just wanted to say I say you in your show Mutiny in London years ago with the late Frank Finlay and Sinetta, it was wonderful, and after the show you were kind enough to take the time to sign the programme even though the show had been running quite some time by then, it’s a shame there is no dvd or blu ray recording available, I was also lucky enough to get tickets to see you in the Swansea Grand Theatre a few years back, you had us dancing in the isles, it was amazing, finally I went to see Silver Dream Racer in Swansea in 1980 with my late Mum and it has influenced me my entire life so far, i’m 53 now and still work in the motorcycle trade, I came across this whilst looking for soundtrack recordings of Mutiny and Silver Dream Racer to buy, also a blu ray of Silver Dream Racer, I already own both versions of the DVD, and I did have it on Betamax which cost £80 in 1981… crazy…

    Hello David

    I was born in 1950 and enjoyed your music in the 70s. I just happened to pick up “Over the Moon” at the library last week and absolutely loved it, your writing is another talent in addition to your music, so easy to read and so enjoyable, and you come through as a warm caring person to your family and friends. What an amazing life you have led (and I guess more to come).

    Kind Regards

  259. Steve Shine says:

    Dear David and Essex Admin Team
    My Sister Julie is now 56 and has been a massive fan since the early days. She has been to every show and concert you’ve ever been in. I grew up listening to your albums and then CDs and my earliest memory is of her singing your latest hit into her hairbrush. It’s fair to say you have been the soundtrack to her life.
    She is getting married for the third (and hopefully last time) on 25th March to Allan Harper and it would mean so much to her to have a signed card from David, wishing her the best of luck. I have sent a card to the PO box listed below and would really appreciate it if David would sign if for her and Allan.
    Yours Sincerely
    Steve Shine

    • Essex Admin says:

      Will check tomorrow for you.

    • Julie says:

      My brother wrote to you in March asking for David to sign a wedding card for me. I got married in March and have been a big fan since the 70s. I have been to every concert and every show have every album. I received the card and picture all signed the weekend. I just want to say thank you very much to David and his team. This was the best surprise I have ever had. Xxx Julie

  270. Janet Simpson says:

    Brought the hardback back in October soon as it came out, but have been so busy not had time to read it. At Reading sign in I got the paperback, so this last week was determined to read it finally. Thoroughly enjoyed it and as a person born in St Thomas’s Hospital in Lambeth who lived in Peckham and Bermondsey, until a forced move to the countryside when I was six and my parents’ broke up, (not the norm in the late 50’s), it took me back to places that my mum still talks about with affection now. Also other vague memories I have of things you talked about in the book. The story was so down to earth and real, with the genuine ups and downs and hardships, of an ordinary family. The girlie things you put into this story about a boxer were smashing as well, making it not just a blokes book. I felt at times like you were writing it especially for me. Total lump in my throat and tears at the end. Thanks David and again for the signing, chat and photos on the 25th February. Love Jan x

  271. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all at admin. Thank you for finding the episode of ‘Heartbeat’ for me, have finally got round to watching it!! I wonder if any other fans have viewed it? Brings back memories!! Does David remember much about it? Would like his feedback if possible. Thank you. Love. Sharon. P.s. Any news on DVD yet?xx

    Hi David will you be doing any more book signing

  273. Julia Beeby says:

    Hi David, my Auntie (Dette) is a massive fan of yours and for her 60th had tickets to see your 2016 tour. Sadly she was unable to make the concert because of heavy traffic delays and was really upset. I’ve only just found this out and want to cheer her up. Would it be possible to have a signed photo wishing her a Happy Birthday.

    Can you also tell me when your DVD of the 2016 tour is out so I can get it her.

  276. Anna says:

    Oops forgot one more thing I couldn’t resist not mentioning
    I read your twitter post about the strange object in the sky and it being the sun … it made me smile and look up today in Essex it’s pipped it’s face a little but as I walked my dog an Iranian poet of a few centuries back came to mind and his words were I quote
    Look at the sun and the amount of times it appears never once has it said to the Earth you owe me …. it has just lit up the whole sky with its beautiful golden light in that moment I just said thank you To that little pip shining through those clouds. It was something to be grateful for no matter how little or big hahahaha after all when we look up and see don’t we all smile and feel that Lillie bit more happier and positive hahahahaha I’m not sure if you read these posts maybe not but your fans will and perharps it may put a smile on there faces bye

  277. Mary mullett says:

    Dear David,When will we know about the arena concerts?Lovely news!Mary.

  278. Anna says:

    Good morning David
    I missed all of your book signing … please schedule a couple more ….maybe Cambridge might be a nice place and fairly central for those a Lillie more north to be able to get to.

    I hope your not too tired and maybe think about it if you have a spare window of time in your rather busy life .

    Apologies if I’m being a little demanding as a fan … I’m not just selfish haha again apologies for that

    Have a lovely day

    Here’s a beautiful quote by my favourite person mother Teresa to you slightly adapted for you by me lol

    As many times as I have seen you …. watched you amongst the crowds of adoring and deserving fans … my soul regonises another beautiful soul within its mist …. not the physical you the higher you

    And each time I want to recite these words to you that higher you

    You are humble
    And nothing can ever touch you
    Neither Praise or disgrace
    Because you know what you are

    I am gutted at not being able to see you in MK. I would have liked you to sign my book, When the Dvd comes out will you visit many locations? if so can you put Leicester on your list please. Hope life is treating you well.

  287. John Mallon says:

    Hi David
    I saw you on TV the other night. I was interested in your fruit picking experiences. I have written a book called Disorderly Fields about fruit picking in Wisbech. If you ever read it I would be interested in your thoughts. Yours John.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Thanks for the info John. I actually went strawberry picking in Wisbech when I was a little boy and loved it – David

    • Anna says:

      Hi John my name is Anna I’m originally from Peterborough
      And I spent many school holidays and other days when I should have been at school picking strawberries in Wisbech in fact it was the only pocket money I ever had … being the 6th child of a large Italian family you can imagine some of the poverty we experience so strawberry picking for me was a godsend but I loved it . waking up 4 am getting into the open truck with all the others and then up and down those fields filling those punnets I loved the smell, the leaves with morning mist on them and the earth smelt amazing
      I’m going to read your book

  288. Janet Simpson says:

    Is it correct you are coming to Reading on 25th February for your book signing. Are you putting it on the Website. Thanks cant wait.


  289. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all. Iwrote on this page on feb 5th,regarding a query about an appearance by David years ago on’Heartbeat’. As i have’nt received a reply i wondered if you had’nt been able to find anything out? Love,Sharon x

  290. Jane says:

    Could you please tell me when the DVD of the I’ll Be Missing You tour will be available. Many thanks.

  291. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, It was lovely seeing you on Country File on Sunday, you look really good. I’ve recorded it so i keep watching it.

    I wondered if it was possible for you to send a signed photo to my friend Maureen, she has followed you from the beginning (she will be 70 this year) & she still follows you now. Sadly on Monday she lost her husband Jim, & a signed photo from you David if possible, I feel will help to cheer her up at this sad time. She only retired from work in Dec. we worked together for over 20 years. Take care Love Bev xx

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Bev, if you can leave details of where to send it, David would be more than happy to send your friend a signed photo.

  292. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, it was lovely to hear you talk so tenderly about your mom and your childhood. What a beautiful piece of film love Kay xx

  293. Patricia Baker says:

  295. Simon bull says:

    Hi David, we are a small social club in West Norfolk in the small village of Walton Highway. We are a committee run club, and any profits have to go back into the club to help the community.
    Would love to have you come to our club to perform some songs or maybe an ‘evening with’.
    I know we probably can’t afford you, but if we don’t ask ?
    We are about 8 miles from Kings Lynn and 5 miles from Wisbech.
    We can only accommodate about 150 people, so as I said a small venue.
    Bill Herd from the Rubettes has just moved into the village and is going to bring the group down in April so we are trying to get the club known and improve the facilities.
    You can find usher n Facebook and Twitter.
    Thanks For your time David.
    Best wishes

  296. Jane Butler says:

    Hello, please would it be possible for me to have a signed photo of David? It would mean a lot as my dear husband, Clive, sadly passed away on Saturday 31st December 2016 and for the last 38yrs he has taken me all over the country to see David in various things. My favourite song “It’s Gonna Be Alright” is giving me a lot of comfort at present. Thank you.

  297. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all. I’ve been watching ‘Heartbeat’ sometimes as it is being shown on a few channels at different times. I know David appeared in an episode as a traveller if i remember correctly,would anyone be able to tell me if this episode will be broadcast again,and if so when and what channel,or,has it already been shown. Thank you. Sharon.x

  298. Jenny says:

    Hi everyone
    Booked for Bognor – of course! Hope it’s not as chilly as last time… Wet and windy…
    What on earth is going on with the DVD? Is there a problem or is it just taking time to get it exactly and fantastically right? Hoping for some good news soon.
    Jenny D

  305. STEPHEN MCDINE says:

    Hello David,
    I have a black and white photograph of an advert from the mid 1970’s of The David Essex Band endorsing Ibanez instruments and TAMA drums. I was wondering if anybody has a copy of this picture in colour?. I am a member of a forum called “Ibanez Collectors World” and the guitars and the mandolin in this 70’s advert are of interest to me. The models of guitars endorsed are now very sort after as collectors pieces. Did you ever use them live on stage?
    Have you any information about this advert?

    Thank you

    Stephen McDIne

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Stephen, yes David did use them on stage. Someone recently sent a photo of David on the drum kit. I will try and find it for you. Kind regards, Sarah – D E Management

    Many thanks

  312. Denise says:

    Hi could you tell me please which Butlins will David be appearing at in September many Thanks Denise

  313. Bev Mannering says:

    H Admin, I wondered if it was possible for my best friend Jill to have a signed photo of David, he kindly signed one for me in November. Jill & I have been to quite a lot of David’s concerts & enjoyed all of them, we also enjoyed seeing David in “All the Fun of the Fair” at the Garrick Theatre, he was excellent. Take care Love Bev x

  314. Nichola Good says:

    Hi, has David ever thought of doing Mutiny again, I have followed David since I was young but I am only 33 so I never had the pleasure of seeing this amazing musical live. With technology of today I think this would a great musical to tour again. I know David is done with touring but he could direct it and then see it tour around the country. I feel it would have an amazing response xxx

  315. Kay smith says:

    Hi admin, I’ve just spotted in the national press dates for David appearing at butlins over the coming year. Can you confirm any dates before I try to book tickets, thanks Kay

  316. Linda Jones says:

    My husband used to take me everywhere to see David, as the tour dates were released we would plan where we would go, we would be in London on Saturday and Leeds on Sunday, Bournmouth the next week, then Torquay. I have wonderful memories of beautiful theatres and shows. We hadn’t been for a while but I decided to go to the very last concert in Wolverhampton (where I live) just for the memories I knew it would bring. My lovely husband passed away in May 2015, a victim of cancer, from diagnosis to the day he passed away was just 9 weeks, he was only 61 and we had been together since he was 14. I buried him just 3 days before our 42nd wedding anniversary. I really enjoyed the concert and as I thought wonderful memories came flooding back and the one song that actually made me cry was ‘it’s gonna be alright’. The words said it all, it was just as if the song had been written for the dreadful night I sat with Mike and watched him slowly go to sleep forever. Thanks for giving me some wonderful memories to hang on to.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Thank you for your message Linda, I found it moving and I’m pleased that you, with Mike, have good memories and that I was a part of them, best wishes, David

    Hi David, In November you kindly sent me a signed photo (which i received on my birthday, so that was a lovely birthday present) this photo is now alongside the framed photo i was able to have taken with you when you were at The Leas, Folkestone. I wondered if it was possible to have another signed photo David please for my friend Jackie who as followed you since the 70’s too like i have. I also wondered when i would be able to purchase your DVD from the Missing you Tour, something i really look forward to watching and singing along to. I’ve also got the DVD when you were at the Royal Albert Hall in the 80’s my friend Bev & I (two Bev’s lol) traveled down to see you from Leeds, Yorkshire and it was a brilliant night. David i would like to wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year & All The Very Best for 2017. I’ll be missing you take care Love Bev :-) xx

    Dear David i have been meaning to write to you since 5th dec 2016 when i got back to perth australia where i have lived for the past 8 yrs, I wrote on this guestbook to let you know i had planned a trip to go all the way back to uk where i am from macclesfield originally, so i wouldnt miss your final solo tour, i saw you in blackpool and i cannot express enough how you went above and beyond as usual my expectations x you were amazing and i cannot thankyou enough when we all went to stand at the front of the stage (very naughty of us x) i was stood right infront of you and you seemed to recognise me and as you approached the fans and touched they hands you shook mine and said hello x that is always been something i love about you is your personal touch with your fans x it absoloutely put the icing on the cake and i will never forget it. The only thing that was a little disappointing was we got directed to the wrong place for your usual signing and i believe you signed for 20 mins at another door it was a shame but i have met you many many times at stage doors and got up close it just would have been nice with it being your final tour x you look amazing and i wish you all the best for your future with your family and a very merry xmas & happy new year take care david i wouldnt have missed your tour for the world x keep on smiling your wonderful cheeky smile loads of love one of your faithful fans

    Thank you so much for my signed photo – just wondering when the DVDs will be out – thanks

  345. Jenny says:

    Re – the documentary – Ran out of money? That’s crazy! Surely someone’s going to pick it up? I reckon we could all finance it with a Crowdfunder – I would be happy to support it There’s just the small problem of getting the right experts in place to finish it…. Who has the rights and all the work completed so far? Is it still Alan G Parker? I’m pretty certain the demand is there from the public to see it and buy it – but of course we would probably need some sort of a corporate set-up and deal I guess – Any experts out there who know how this can be done???
    Jenny D

    • Essex Admin says:

      It was put on Pledge but not enough people pledged to put it forward and yes it’s still with Alan G Parker.

  349. Julie Waller says:

    To Dear David, Sue, Sarah and Verity,
    A few words to thank you ALL for your wonderful help after the chaos caused by the ‘bonkers’ Wolverhampton stage door security staff’s refusal to allow us access to you for the presentation of your gift which you had okayed. We were devastated to have let you down even though it wasn’t our fault. The thank you videos sent by Sarah and Verity were fabulous. The personal one you sent to me was incredibly special David, and Sue, your kindness and patience in taking photos of the Memories Book which was ‘Sally from Somerset’s’ personal gift to David, for us all to see in the DEGC was ‘above and beyond the call of duty’. You are a star Mrs Cook! Thank you all and we wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a bonkers New Year!
    Much love from Julie and the DEGC xxxxxxx

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Donna, Apologies for not replying sooner. You can get them on or leave your message on here and it won’t be published.

      • Donna says:

        Thank you but that’s the email address I’ve written to a few times, but have had no reply. My mum went to see David’s concert in Ipswich last month. She bought a VIP ticket and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately she thinks David wasn’t feeling well as he didn’t do the meet and greet after the show. So she couldn’t get her books signed. The venue had also sold out of programmes so she wasn’t able to buy one of these either. (She thought the programme was included in the VIP package, but maybe she was wrong about that)

        Would it possible to send you her 2 books for David to sign please, as she was very disappointed she didn’t get to meet him. And is it possible to buy a programme from you please.

        Thank you, Donna.

        • Essex Admin says:

          Hello Donna,

  373. Julie Sheppard says:

    Thank you for enjoying your concerts for 42 years, my first when I was 14 in Oxford and one of the last in Oxford as well. Would it be possible to send me a signed photograph with Julie on it please as a constant reminder of all the fantastic concerts I have enjoyed over the years. Good luck with whatever you do in the future and hope to see you on the stage in 2017. Thank you.

  374. Anna says:

    Saw you in Southend you were wonderful as usual I love how humble you are. But what always amazes me is I get to see you every time unexpectedly and I’m always on the phone haha but I always try to pretend I don’t regonise you because it’s moments when your either walking away or to something in a restuarant(by chance ) or at one of your concerts or theatre shows having a quick relaxing fag lol . And need your privacy which I would never invade. So your final tour was a must as it was in Southend that I first saw you having been dragged there reluctantly by a neighbour who’s friend couldnt make the evening and she had a spar ticket. so it started and I thought as you started to sing and talk this is a strange man but I actually like him

    Could you let me know when your signing in blue waters please
    Many thanks

  377. Dawn Rogerson says:

    Just wanted to say that both myself and my 19 year old daughter, Tahlia had a great evening in Wolverhampton. Is it possible I could have a signed photo made out to Tahlia please? She has no idea I’m asking so will be a massive surprise for her. Both of my daughters have endured many car journeys listening to David and Tahlia has seen him many times live. I think the first time I got a photo of her with David she must have only been about 6 years old. She was also the first one on Sunday evening to get really emotional and started crying as David came on the stage. Thanks again David for the music. Here’s to a quieter life :) Love always Dawn (& Tahlia) xxxx

    Looking forward to seeing David in Stoke on Trent tonight. Perfect timing as it’s my birthday today. Rock On was one of my first record purchases as a teenager. I heard it on Radio Luxembourg before it charted and had to order it and wait a week for it to arrive. I had no idea who David Essex was, I just new I had to own that sound. THANK YOU DAVID. ROCK ON.

  402. Lesley Hills says:

    Many thanks for the signed photo that arrived today it is now inside your latest book which my husband and myself really enjoyed hope you write some more.really enjoyed your show at Sheffield sorry we won’t see you live again but I can still listen to your music and watch your DVD,s anytime Enjoy your retirement and family.My husband retired in May and we are enjoying our time together.Bye for now and Thank you again.Lesley

  403. Jenny says:

    Hi David
    Thanks for another fab concert in Oxford last night, although some people did get a bit over-enthusiastic during a couple of songs, and also for staying so long to sign stuff for us all afterwards. Bournemouth was really amazing too , it seems you always really enjoy performing there, and it certainly has the best acoustics that I’ve heard. So that’s it now for me, as I said to you last night, I really can’t believe that it was the last time I would see you performing live. I think I must have seen you about 50 plus times and I will really miss looking forward to “the next tour”and rushing to buy tickets for as many venues as I could manage to visit. Thanks for all the great times, I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have. I’m still hoping to see you at the book signing in a couple of weeks, so I can face withdrawal gracefully! Good luck with the last few dates, and hope we can see the DVD before Christmas.
    Love, health and happiness to you as always
    Jenny D

  404. Nicola says:

    An absolutely fantastic concert in London. Loved every minute . Would love a couple of signed photographs for me and my mum we were unable to stay afterwards as we had a train to catch .

  405. Andrew Britten says:

    As expected chemotherapy prevented, my darling wife and life long fan of David were unable to get to Bristol. Lots of tears. Real shame. Love to all Andrew Britten

    Well done in Oxford , David. I feel rude . I forgot to thank you for a great concert and signing my book. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Xxx

  407. Kaz Scott says:

    PS Would it be too cheeky to ask for a signed photo?

    Lots of love.
    Kaz Scott xxx

  408. Kaz Scott says:

    Hi David. I just had to thank you for such a fabulous concert at Bristol, Colston Hall, last night (21st Nov). You sang my fave DE song – If I Could – really early in the show (2nd song) and I had a tears in my eyes as I was singing along. It was really lovely to hear On and On – another of my favourites from way back then. There was a lot of love for you last night and I hope you felt it. I felt very sad when the intro to Missing You came in, as I knew it was the last song. I have been a fan since I was 12 when I first heard Lamplight and Rock On and I had your pictures all over my bedroom wall!

    I will really miss your concerts and wish you and your family well, but hope you will continue to write and release CDs in the future.

    With love always.
    Kaz Scott xxx

    • Bev Mannering says:

      Hi Kaz, Just read your review and glad you enjoyed seeing David, unfortunately i wasn’t able to see David on his last tour, but i have seen him many many times i would say round about 40. I am like you, i really love it when he sings If i could, everyone always joins in and they have a really good time, and when David sings Missing You, you know its nearly the end, bet it was an emotional night for all. Good to hear David sang On & On, not heard that one for ages, i am looking forward to getting the DVD when it comes out, i will be singing along then lol, i bet i will have tears in my eyes too. Again glad you had a good time Kaz, good memories to keep. Bev

    Brilliant concert in Bristol last night. Can I ask why the brochures were £15 but other venues were selling them for only £10?

  410. Rita says:

    Hi David, wanted to thank you for a brilliant concert in London on Sunday night – you were as always fantastic and forever young. Came with my two sons for my birthday treat and it certainly was the best ever. Will watch out for your next venture and hope to see you again one day on tour. Wishing you and the band, the best of health and happy days – cos you have certainly given much more to us all.
    All the best – Rita X

    So disappointed I am missing tonight’s concert in Bristol despite having tickets
    I am currently on a train from Paddington returning to Bath . Unfortunately the bad weather (flooding ) effected the trains !!!! A 1 and half hour journey took approx 4 hrs Aaarrrg !!!! Hence missing concert . Is there a DVD out of the tour ( not the same as seeing you perform ) but would love to see what I missed .All your performances have been fantastic and very gracious to your fans throughout the years. Such a pity your last but understand the need for family time .
    Enjoy the change your future will bring , am sure what ever you do will successful ,

    • Essex Admin says:

      So sorry to hear that Jean. Yes there will be a DVD. It is being filmed in Wolverhampton, the last concert of the tour.

  419. Nicky says:

    Not sure if this message will reach you … tried your email several times…
    Wish I could get hold of you… sorry I ‘missed you’ for this tour, had no idea it was to be the last. Sometimes hard to accept that time has passed us all by. It feels to me, the first time we met, it was just a few years ago.
    Wishing this last tour is enjoyable and memorable and that you and your family, stay well and happy. With love and hugs dear David. xo

    Fabulous night on Friday 18/11/16 at Bournemouth BIC the show was exciting and invigorating and you are so cool in what you do. Your fans love everything you do and we are sad there will be no more but keep writing and producing marvellous books and stories and you will remain with us and in our hearts forever.

    Hi don’t know if this will go on in time but we are going to see David in London tomorrow night 20 November and we have VIP tickets, one of the party can’t go because her daughter has today broke her arm ! ! ! We are hoping to get £70 but open to offers, this isn’t a con and we can meet you outside tomorrow with ticket. If any takers please call me on 07548791880. By the way the ticket with charges cost £95 so we are not making any money , just trying to get some back for a Mum who has had to put her daughter first x x x

  425. Sue Thompson says:

    A great show at Bournemouth B.I.C 18th November thank you for taking the time to have a pic with me made my birthday so special xxx

  426. Sue hill says:

    What a wonderful but emotional show at the Cliffs Pavilion on November 17th. Even though I felt a bit stupid, I waited at the stage for your autograph and was a bit embarrassed as felt this was an intrusion in your life but you were very gracious. You must have been touched by the warmth of the audience. I only really started to follow you after reading your autobiography out of curiosity and thought what an interesting life you had had but Rock On was one of my favourite songs when younger (I was born the same year as you) and I thought at the time how different it was. Stardust remains my favourite. I have since seen your musical All The Fun of The Fair. (Would have loved to have seen Evita!). It is so important to be positive and continue to be creative even when we are labelled OAPs! I am always positive.
    Your family must be very proud of your achievements and as a fellow human being I would like to wish you every happiness. It must be comforting to know that you have given joy to so many people and that you will continue to be creative. Thank you.

  427. deborah burningham says:

    Hi admin, i am attending the concert on sunday in london, would david be around after the show to sign my book, have been to see him several times in All the fun of the Fair but never remembered to take the book.

  430. Susan Peach says:

    Hi David,

    Thank you so much for coming to Hull, it was so amazing to see you again. The concert was as always fabulous, they have all been. I saw you the first time in the 70’s, and have been a fan ever since, I cant help it you are so good, in so many ways. I wrote a poem for you called ‘The last Tour’, which I hope you will enjoy, and I have added ‘Your woolen Glove’, one of a few I have written, to keep you warm.

    Very good luck with your future, may all your wishes come true.
    :-) xx

    The Last Tour

    The words they read so surreal and untrue, I could not believe that your tours were all through,
    But then when I think of the years I have had, from the 70’s to now, its not quite so bad.
    You’ve kept us transfixed with your songs old and new, the films and the acting were all part of you,
    Then there was the Fun of the Fair for us all, we gonna take a ride one and all.
    The books and the writing, the poems so fine, a Traveling Tinker Man there for all time, Memories like cobwebs they grow thick and fast, your tours have such magic, in my mind they will last. :-)

    Your Woolen Glove

    Will you let me be in love?
    Hold me tight in your woolen glove,
    Fold your fingers around my hand,
    Give it a squeeze when life’s not so grand.
    You can borrow mine too,
    On the day’s when you feel,
    That life’s not so great,
    it will help you to heal.
    And if you need more,
    Then my glove for your strife,
    I offer my scarf for the rest of your life.

    Hope you enjoy this David, I wrote it along with a few others a while ago now.

    Take care :-)

  431. Sally says:

  433. Betty says:

    Hi Admin.
    Went to Concert last night at Ipswich with my sister. Thoroughly enjoyed the concert, David superb as usual but very disappointed that all programmes were sold out and we were unable to buy one. Is it possible to purchase one for each of us from yourselves????
    Also I purchased an XL black tee shirt but when I tried it on at home found it to be “very snug”. Asked my niece to try it on who is only a size 14 and she found that it only just fitted.
    Can you advise whether you do any other sizes as it only advertised XL on your merchandise website.
    Betty and Audrey.
    P.S. Audrey purchased a calendar and the photos are fantastic and she is very pleased with it.
