Happy 2018. Love Bev xx :-)

  8. 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.

    Hi David,
    Just in pub with my girlfriend and a winter’s tail came on the video jukebox. A bit of an argument as to where it was filmed looks like Dartmoor to me. We both loved it.

    Hi David,
    It’s that time of the year again – When we Remember Christmasses past – “Good Old East End”!
    Christmas Eve, singing Gonna Make You A Star, with hairbrush as microphone, in the front room! Christmas tree lights on, waiting for the “Tinny” Santa’s sleigh, (Round Table), to come down the road – And, “Sally” Army to sing carols around the lantern!
    Oh, How I love Christmas! – Wishing you, and all of your Family, A Very Happy Christmas!
    Love Sallyx (Essex)

  28. 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

  29. 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!

  30. 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

  31. Lesley Anglin says:

  32. Ann Baker says:

    Hello David, thank you for a wonderful concert at Cricket St Thomas, the atmosphere felt very special as it was quite an intimate venue and your performance was captivating as usual. A big thank you too for signing my copy of your book ‘Faded Glory’ that made my evening even more memorable. See you next time, luv Ya to the stars and back Ann XX

    Thoroughly enjoyed the show last night. I hope you do another one soon, we miss you David. I struggled getting up for work this morning after a late night but I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. All the best to you, the family and the lovely band. Anne Xx

  37. 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.”

  38. Mary mullett says:

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

  39. 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

  40. 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!

  41. 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

  42. Karen Day says:

    Hi David

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


  43. 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

  44. Mary mullett says:

    Dear David, Brilliant show in Birmingham on Saturday.You were by far the best artist.See you at Wembley.Mary

  67. Sally says:

    Hi David, Yesterday, I dropped my ATFOTF mug, and it smashed to smithereens! well disappointed, and have used it everyday since the tour of the show! Is it possible to buy any of your mugs, or have they sold out?! Thanks, Love Sally (Essex)xxx

  68. Julie says:

  69. David White says:

    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
    Dave White.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Sorry Dave, but David has sadly neglected keeping things from his career. So as far as memorabilia is concerned, there is very little.

    To David Happy 70th Birthday from Susan & Lance x

  107. 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!

  108. 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

  109. 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

  110. 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.

  111. 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.

  112. 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.

      Hello Lesley, sorry to hear that, we did send it. Would you be kind enough to leave your address and we’ll have another go. Kind regards – D E Management

  113. angie says:

    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

  114. 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

  115. 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?

    I just wanted to let you know I had a fantastic day in London last weekend with 3 ladies I have met through social media and sharing our very different journeys as fans of yours over the years.
    We are meeting up again in September at Thorsby Hall for your show.
    Thank-you .

  119. 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

  120. 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

  121. 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

  122. Sheila says:

    Will you ver release boogie nights on d v d

  123. 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…

  124. Nichola Good says:

    Hi David,
    Can I purchase your appearance on ‘this is your life’ on DVD? Xxxx

  125. Maree Shrples says:

    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

  146. 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

  147. Karen Woodman says:

  157. 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

  158. 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

  159. Diana says:

    Hi David will you be doing any more book signing

  160. 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.


  161. mick lacey says:

    Hi there can you tell me if david is playing at butlins bognor regis in September 22nd 2017?

    Hello David hope you are well I was just wondering when ur did will be released from the missing you tour love you always take care God bless xxx

  163. 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

  164. Mary mullett says:

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

  165. 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.

  174. 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

  175. 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.


  176. 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

  177. Jane says:

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

  178. 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.

  182. 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

  183. 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.

  184. 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

    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

  198. Steve says:

    Of January. She is a life long fan and it would make her day.
    Many thanks

    • Essex Admin says:

  199. Denise says:

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

  200. 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

  201. 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

  202. 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

  203. 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

  226. sarah says:

    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

    Good wishes for Christmas and 2017

  231. Julie sheppard says:

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

  232. 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.

  233. Lance says:

    David Merry Christmas best of british from Lance & Susan

  236. 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:

      Thank you for your kind words Julie. Have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy new year. Best wishes from all “The Cookies”

    Hello, I’ve tried emailing the fan address a few times but have had no reply. Can you give me the correct email to contact you please. Thank you.

    • 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,
          We don’t have any programmes to sell, sorry, but you can send the books to:

  261. 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

    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

    Enjoy spending more time with your family – they really are the most precious thing we all have and children grow up too fast.
    Many thanks for all the photos, autographs and time spent at the stage door .
    Now looking forward to the release of the DVD being filmed tonight.

    Best wishes

    Hi David will be there to see you in Wolverhampton tonight with my sister for your last show can’t wait. You very kindly sent my sister a signed photo early this year which I asked for for her special birthday. Could I possibly be cheeky and ask for one for myself please. Would try tonight but got to get a taxi home and can’t keep them waiting.

  288. MARTIN SHAW says:

    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.

  289. Lesley Hills says:

  290. 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

  291. 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 .

  292. 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

  293. June Chilton says:

    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

  294. Kaz Scott says:

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

    Lots of love.
    Kaz Scott xxx

  295. 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

  296. Janet says:

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

  297. 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

  298. ANGELA GRIST says:

    Just got back from seeing you at the Colston Hall in Bristol fab night loved every minute every note and every song, enjoy taking things just a little easier this is something that you have earned & your loyal fans understand this. Good luck in what is to be the next chapter of your life.

  299. Lesley Harris says:

    Hi David,

  301. Jean Robbins says:

    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.

  302. Debbie says:

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for such a fantastic concert yesterday, a wonderful evening. Really wish I’d brought your CD … Xxx

  303. beverley says:

    Just wanted to thank you David for a brilliant final concert at Sarfend and wish you and your family all the best for the future. It was lovely to meet you afterwards and to get your autograph. You are a truly amazing, talented and lovely person and I will miss you. We won’t be “Here altogether anymore” but I will “Hold you Close” in my thoughts. Love and Best Wishes Bev. XX

  304. lorraine says:

    ooooops I’m not good at this lark, I thought my details would not be shown/ !!!

  305. Carol Lawson says:

    Loved your concert in Southend! Why have you decided to give up though?

  306. 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

  309. Elaine Latham says:

    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.

  310. Wendy says:

    David, please don’t leave us fans completely, you’ve been such a massive part of our life’s for so long as you know. This can’t be the end?
    We will also be missing you more then you will ever know. ☹

  311. Nadina says:

    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

  312. 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

  313. 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.

  314. 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.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Deborah, David always makes time for people at the stage door and would be more than happy to sign your books.

  315. tracy westwood says:

    saw your show in southend last night. absolutely amazing. you can still belt out those tunes and look good while doing it. enjoy your retirement from touring . time spent with family is time well spent xx

  317. 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 :-)

  318. Sally says:

    Dear David, That was special! Fantastic Last concert on tour, at Southend! You and the band were absolutely brilliant! The sound was amazing, love the changes to the music aswell!

Gonna Make You A Star is just the best ever! To The Future with LOVE, family and friends. Flying high, I’ve got a lot of LOVE inside………..X Sally (Essex) My HERO, since I was 13, and one to Treasure ALWAYSxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Hi David,
    Thanks for a great show at Cliffs Pavilion Southend.. Really enjoyed it. Missing you Tour. We certainly will be missing you. So many fans loving you tonight. Hope to see you on TV. Enjoy your retirement. You deserve it. I am sure they will be a comeback tour one day…yeah…
    God Bless you
    Much love. Linda…x.x

  320. 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.

  321. David Harrison says:

    Hi, I am Mayor of Basildon . My wife is at Southend concert tonight.
    I am raising money for two childrens charities in Basildon. If I leave a couple of A4 photos at Stage Door at Cliffs Pavilion tonight with a stamped addressed envelope, perhaps David would be good enought to sign for me for my Charity auctions in February and March.
    Many thanks

    • Essex Admin says:

      Sorry, only just seen your message. If for some reason it doesn’t get signed you can send it to us at:
      PO Box 390, Billinghurst, West Sussex, RH14 4BE

  322. VANESSA says:

    So looking forward to seeing you Mr. Essex in Southend tonight! Good luck for the show! loads of hugs and kisses!! Vanessa.

  323. Carole Mitchell says:

    David, you have been a part of my life for over 45 years….but we’re all getting old! Memories of saving my pittance of a wage from a Saturday job to buy ‘Rock On’ the single and album and how slow the bus went on the way home because I just wanted it on my turntable asap! Saw you first time at the Liverpool Empire in the early 70s and have seen you many times since, in concert and at your shows. So it was fitting that our parting shot was at the Liverpool Philharmonic; what an amazing show. You, as always, were brilliant and the years just rolled away. Thanks for all the music and good times, you are indeed an amazing person and I wish you all the very best in whatever you do next.
    I’ll miss you but ‘it’ll be alright’!

  324. val says:

    Hi Admin,
    I have enjoyed both concerts I have been to and have one more to go, I waited for David at stage door, but run out of time, as had to be at work, hence my books never got signed, any possibilities of David signing them please.


    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Val, Of course, you can send them to: PO Box 390, Billinghurst, West Sussex, RH14 4BE

      • val says:

        Hi thank you for replying, I will send them to the address you have said, how do I pay for them return postage that will cost you to send back please? as there are a few items that I would like David to sign,

        Kind regards

        • Essex Admin says:

          Hello Val, If you can send a self addressed envelope to send them back, thank you.

          • val says:

            Hi Admin,
            Thank you for replying.
            I should have said the parcel will have three hard back books, would a stamped address envelope be appropriate?.

            Very kind regards,

          • Essex Admin says:

            Hello Val, I’d send them in padded envelopes, so they don’t get damaged. Are you not able to get to a book signing, as that’s a lot to post? He’s signing in Southampton 6th Dec., Birmingham 8th Dec., Bluewater 10th Dec..

          • val says:

            Hi Admin,
            Unfortunately I cant get to those places, so I guess I wait and see if another opportunity comes along. I am at another concert but wont have the time to hang around waiting for him to come out. I have a two hour drive back home, then onto work.
            Kind regards

  325. Kathleen Dempsey says:

    Hello can I ask for a signed photo please for my niece Kerry and her friend Jennifer who are going to the Philharmonic Hall tonight they are besotted with David. They are so excited,

    Thank you

  326. Kathryn Ruickbie says:

    Hi David
    Fantastic show in Glasgow. Can’t believe it’s been 45 years. The first concert I attended was @ the Odeon Theatre Edinburgh on Mon 26/3/1979. I still have the concert ticket. There was no way at that time in your career would we ever have gotten anywhere near you. It is so great to be able to meet you nowadays, even although you are still as popular.
    I have been a fan since the 70’s, love all your music, and I will be Missing You!
    Best wish for the future, whatever it holds for you.

    Kathryn Ruickbie xxxxx
    Could I possibly have a signed photo please?

  327. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, Still reading all the great reviews. Can’t wait to see the DVD David with not been able to get to see you on your last tour. Do we get it from the Billinghurst, West Sussex address when its on sale?. Enjoy rest of the tour & thanks for all the great memories & I’ll be missing you. Take care happy retirement and enjoy the time with your family. Love Bev xx

  330. Michelle Leddicoat says:

    Hi David,
    Just like to say thanks for all the memories you given me and many many more people, over the last 40 odd years. Final concert at Newcastle City Hall, 11.11.16, was very emotional as you left the stage for the last time…. Many people will agree with you that family is very precious, so enjoy your retirement and you never know, we might be lucky and get a cheeky little concert some time! (That’s me hoping)
    THANK YOU xxx


    Hiya David and your team hope you are enjoying yourself and having fun, I know many many of you fans have expressed the joy you have brought to their lives and I’m adding to the well wishes xxx I actually live in Perth Australia but I can’t believe I’ve done it but I have come all the way home to uk just to see you! Mad I know but as many have said I was 12 the first time I saw you,missed the last 8 years of your tour with moving to Australia and I wasn’t missing your last tour xx I’m seeing you at Blackpool in 2 weeks and reading the comments cant wait X can I ask are we allowed to dance? Hearing comments that we aren’t It would be sad if we can’t just wanted to check take care David see you soon hopefully at the stage door aswell X yours sarah originally from macclesfield Cheshire which I heard you popped into the tesco store a couple of years ago now and my social media went wild to me in aus everybody letting me know ha ha see you soon x

  332. Linsay Barraclough says:

    Well that’s us home safe and sound from your Glasgow concert. It was a wonderful concert enjoyed immensely by us both. I still however have a heavy heart in knowing that it was the last time Mr David Essex OBE will entertain us in a solo tour and quite a few years were shed this evening.I have followed him for 43 years during which time his songs have been a constant. Thankyou so much for those wonderful years, your music has carried and supported me and cheered me on. Mr Essex Sir – you are a legend and I look forward to hearing where your road is now going to take you. Wishing you a happy and healthy future for many years to come. In your own words this evening “I’ll be missing you ” ❤️

  333. Annette connah says:

    Hi David
    I am coming to your concert in Liverpool on Tuesday 15 Nov and and can’t wait. Front row seats A12 and 13. I have a photo with you from 20 years ago is there any way you can sign this for me.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Annette, David does make time for people at the stage door after the concerts, although it’s been pretty crazy. If for some reason you don’t see him, you can send it to: PO Box 390, Billinghurst, West Sussex, RH14 4BE
      Hope you have great night!

  334. Hi David, I was very lucky to get a ticket for Hull City Hall last night, last ticket to sell, think there had been a cancellation. It was my first time seeing you live! Don’t quite know why I haven’t got to see you sooner, but better late than never!
    Last night was fantastic, thank you David!! Loved every minute of it. Probably the best night of my life!
    When you did `If I could`, that was so emotional, and even more so when you sang `Winter’s Tale`, it always makes me cry, I thought the set was just magical for it, the mirrorball making it look like it was snowing! Wonderful.
    It was just a truly great show, thank you so much. I will be missing you too, God bless, all the best David! xx

  335. shelley mason says:

    Loved your concert in Newcastle I’m so sorry I chucked my bra on stage I’ve had a lot on just got guardianship of my granddaughter then to get the flu took loads of tablets to get rid of it then had a few vodkas which I don’t drink done what I done which I regret coz I love you and respect you please accept my apology xx

  336. Julie says:

    Fabulous concert David at Hull City Hall tonight. A very emotional ‘it’ll be alright’. It is hard to believe that this is your final tour, the end of an era. Take care David, you will be missed so much. Love Julie and daughter Emma xx

  337. Janice prime says:

    hi david just would like to say you where fabulous last night at city hall newcastle you have give me so many happy memories it was very emontional i felt my heart sank when you said godbye. I love you forever sincerly for over 43 yrs and that will never change. I wish you well and i know family is most precious things in our lives to so all that remains is enjoy yours and your retirement you so deserve it thank you so much take care god bless david xxxxx

  338. Vall says:

    Hi, I was lucky enough to see David last night night at Newcastle City Hall. An amazing night with a gorgeous man, what more can a girl ask for. Rather emotional as David left the stage for the last time.. I for 1 will be missing you. Enjoy your retirement David. Love and very best wishes to Vall xx

  339. Gillian Salmon says:

    I’m feeling very blessed after seeing David in Newcastle last night. It was a great show and I’m so grateful to David for giving us all the opportunity to see him again and say good bye and thank you. I totally understand that David wants to spend time with his wife and baby and that he also turns seventy next year, so isn’t planning another big concert tour. I would never have expected that I would still be able to see David on tour throughout his sixties and feel very lucky that he has been so dedicated to his fans. I think David’s willingness to come out and sign and speak to fans after his shows is way beyond what any of us could expect. David, thank you so much – I don’t need a picture, I don’t need to touch you, but the chance to say thank you in person really means so much, especially this one last time. It is so very kind of you to say “I love you” to all of us – I’ve not heard you say it before, but it’s a lovely good bye present to us all. I’ve also never said “I love you” to you before, but had to take my last chance to say it to you. I fell in love with your voice on the radio when I was about 8, then fell in love with all over again when I was about 15 and shed many tears over you. I never did grow out of you or stop loving you although I’m happily married now. I feel very lucky to have fallen in love with someone so talented and with such good values and principles. I no longer want to ask anything of you David, I just want to express my heartfelt thanks for everything that you’ve meant and mean in my life. I said to you last night that I hope the happiness you’ve given to so many of us is reflected back to you one hundred fold – that’s a truly heartfelt wish. I wish you a long, happy, healthy life – I hope you’re able to enjoy watching your young son grow up. Thank you once again for all the years and all the tears and all the songs, David you’re the best <3 xxx

  348. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, I keep looking at all the reviews from your shows and it sounds that you all are having a brilliant time together. So sad that you wasn’t able to come to Kent, my friend & i have seen you lots of times in Kent, Canterbury, Margate, Folkestone, Dartford, Tunbridge Wells, and you were brilliant, i was eventually able to get my photo taken with you at Folkestone, this is now framed, all in all I would say I’ve seen over 40 times, and have so many good memories of you David. Thanks again for the signed photo & personalised too, which came on my birthday so a lovely birthday present :-). Look forward to getting the DVD of your tour. I’ve also got your Video & DVD when you were at the Royal Albert Hall, i was at that one and we came down from Leeds then. Enjoy your evening off David. Will miss you, take care Love Bev x

  349. Martyn Kenyon says:

    Hi. My dad’s sister in law is coming to your show at Blackpool. She is travelling to Blackpool from New York to see your show. It’s her 60th birthday. It would be nice if you could say Happy Birthday on the evening. Her name is Janet Buckley. That would be a massive surprise as she had been a lifelong fan. Many Thanks!

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Martyn, I’m sorry, David doesn’t do shout outs during the concert but I hope you she has a great time.

  350. Janette Rutter says:

    I am lost for words. Last night at The Symphony Hall you were wonderful. I have been a fan of yours right from the start. I came with my Daughter and my friend. Cannot believe it is the last concert . Thank you so much for all the years of happiness and amazing music. Keep in touch with us fans. Enjoy your retirement. Will always love you and NEVER forget you. Take Care xxxxx

    Lots of Love
    From Jan

  351. Jo Taylor says:

    Hi David,
    My sister and I saw your show in Sheffield on Sunday, it was a great show, thank you. We felt that “It’s Gonna Be Alright” was a message from our Mum who passed away unexpectedly a fortnight ago and who’s funeral was the very next day. The lyrics so suited our feelings at the time and will always remind us of Mum. She knew that we had tickets to see you and wouldn’t have wanted us to miss our last opportunity to see you live singing our favourite songs. Despite having been a fan for 40 plus years I’ve never managed to get an autograph to add my memorabilia despite all attempts, any chance of a signed photo? Relax and enjoy your retirement! If you do a comeback tour at anytime we’ll be there for you. Missing you already.
    Jo xx

  352. Carole says:

    Hi David
    Fab concert in Southampton last night! Thanks for signing as always – it was pretty chilly but you stayed for ages as there were loads of people waiting to see you
    I will see you at the BIC and for the very last time in Oxford – that will be really sad for me but at least you will be able to enjoy more time with your family after giving us so much of it over the years
    Be healthy and happy – those are the important things in life – look after yourself
    I look forward to seeing more of your other projects in the future as I don’t believe you will be hanging up your creative streak altogether

    We have been spoilt over the years with David’s tours having over 50 dates to choose from so I can understand the disappointment that some areas are missing from this tour but 21 dates is still a lot to choose from and I want to thank you david for the past tours and although I don’t want it to end looking forward to the final tour xx

  366. alan eason says:

    maybe should have used a different promotor how many areas have been left out

    • Essex Admin says:

      21 dates is a lot of venues Alan, when most artists only do 5.

    • Gill says:

      A lot of us have to travel to see David he doesnt go to everyones doorsetp ,but believe me its well worth it………and 21 dates in a month is amazing!

  367. Gill taylor says:

    Feel let down and so dìssapointed no tour for norwich. Left out after all support over yrs. Not missed a tour till now.

    • Essex Admin says:

      David would have loved to have gone to Norwich but unfortunately that’s just how the promotors planned the tour.

  369. Jill Haynes says:

    I was very happy to see you looking so well in Cardiff yesterday, David. I really enjoyed the evening and you played all my favourites. It was emotional, of course, but it evoked wonderful memories as well. You still have it, that’s for sure, you sounded just the same. I wish you the best of everything in your retirement and I want to thank you for decades of fabulous music that made us all very happy. We will miss YOU.
    With much love, Jill Haynes xxx

  375. Anne Nash says:

    Hi David, I thoroughly enjoyed the show last night at Cardiff St. David’s Hall and you’ll never know how much I’ve missed your concerts and will miss them even more now.
    Through illness of family and bereavements, just watching your videos has been a real pick me up and looking forward to your shows was a huge tonic (no gin!!) I was holding it together quite well last night until you said the words ” thank you for the past 45 years”, then I shed a few tears!! I’m grateful for the photos we had taken together and I will treasure them, especially the one you signed at Swansea several years ago. Thank you so much.
    I fully understand we are all getting older and time with families is precious and I would like to wish you all the best with yours.
    Take care all the best and if you do any ‘one off’ shows in the future I’m sure I’ll be there. Good luck and enjoy the rest of the tour as your dedicated fans certainly will.
    Love always

She loved Silver Dream Machine & Missing you & i know you will be singing them & i don’t think i could handle that. The last time i saw you was at the Cresset Peterborough & i went with my daughter as my sister became very ill to go. I was very lucky to have my photo taken with you though. The 1st one had the light shining on it & you let my daughter take another one which now sits in my living room. I was able to show my sister this & she was pleased as she knew i was desperate to get a photo with you, I have 2 grown up daughters & the eldest has the middle name Verity, the youngest has Lea, not spelt the same as your daughter’s I know. I have been a fan of yours for 40 years, Your autographs are in a frame. Any-way thank-you for all the lovely concerts my sister & i came to. You have given me very special memories. I wish you all the very best. Thanks for being you. Lots of love Alison xx
