    So disappointed that you will not be coming to Margate on your tour. Would have loved to have seen you on my home turf, so to speak.

  2. Sally says:

    Hi David, Is it possible to get the photo of you, from I’ll Be Missing You Tour? Thank you! Sally (Essex)xxx 70 Bryony Close, Witham,Essex CM8 2XF

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Judy, you can have a signed photo, but it’s not the tour photo. If you’d still like one please leave your details on here. (It won’t be published)

  3. June Chilton says:

    Can we have another one of your photos on facebook please David. They always cheer me up. Thank you xxxx

  4. June Chilton says:

    David and Admin
    Thank you so much for my mums signed photograph. It realy made her day. So many people have made the same request and you never say no. Nothing is too much trouble for you. God bless you all. X

  5. Imperial Wizard says:

    Hi David when will we finally be able to see or buy the movie, “The David Essex Story?”
    Any new material for the tour?

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello, Not quite sure of the date as yet but David believes the director is hoping to have it in cinemas and on DVD in October.

  6. June Chilton says:

    Could you please send my mum a signed photograph if Ieave her details thanks

  7. janie rogers says:

    Like Pam said what have we done wrong in kent.

    I was so looking forward to this tour.

    We are so loyal fans here. Feel very sad.


    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Janie, As we said, it’s just the way the promoters have planned the tour with the venues that were available. Hope you can get to one of the many other venues that David will be performing at. Kind regards, D E Management

  8. Sally says:

    Hi David, Gonna Make You A Star, is my all time favourite song of yours, I know this will be top of your playlist, along with all your other good stuff!!! Looking forward to it! Have a Great Bank holiday weekend! Love Sally (Essex)xxx

  9. Jill Cassidy says:

    Hi david thank you so much for coming to glasgow on tour (i would have came to england if u had not lol) really appreciate it 3 weeks to being a grandma so excited hope you and all the family are well take care love jill cassidy dundee.

  10. Val says:

    Hi David
    Have managed to get tickets to see you on this last tour, are you closing down completely from your fans, or will you be acting so we can still come and see you? like all the fun at the fair. or are you concentrating on writing books. what ever you do I wish you, Susan and family all the best and life treats you well.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Val, Thank you for those kind words, David expects to be still working in film or theatre in the future.

      • Val says:

        Dear Admin,
        Thank you so much for that information, I am pleased to hear that news, have been a fan of David for years and was upset that this will be his last tour, I am hoping to get a photo with him one more time so fingers crossed I am lucky.

  11. Pol Howard says:

    Hi David,
    May I ask as special request from a few of your fans? We were all saying it would be lovely if you wore your long black jacket and red waistcoat for the tour :-) Even if it was only for the Last one at Wolverhampton as that is a special outfit of yours that I know we all love xxx See you at Manchester xxx

  12. sean elvin says:

    Hi there
    For many years my mum and i would go and see you when you came to Peterborough it was always a great night . its a shame you stopped coming, mum is now approaching 70 ( she will kill me for that ) , in the last 10 years she has had and beaten ovarian cancer and now has been struck with the Parkinson stick and a dose of the shakes, but she is my mum so will go on for ever.
    This tour because we can sit down we are coming again to see you, she thinks we are sitting right at the back but i have managed second row seats for Nottingham, where she will be able to see you eyes twinkle ( her words not mine).
    Because this might be the last time she gets to see you , i was wondering if there was anytime on the day for a pic of you and her please oh and she is half Romany from her mum.
    this is very cheeky i know but she is my mum and teh strongest lady i know
    Nais Tuke

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Sean, It’s good to see you that you are taking care of your mother, regarding your request, touring is hectic and time is always tight, probably the best idea is to get the photo done at the stage door after the show.I always spend time signing autographs etc; so hopefully we can do it then, Best wishes to you both and I hope mum has a good time, David

  13. alan eason says:

    you seem to be missing out a lot of areas this time with the tour

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Alan,
      David will be doing 21 UK dates which I think you’ll agree is quite a lengthy tour. Hopefully you can get to one of them.
      Kind regards
      D E Management

  14. PAM says:

    Sorry to see David is not in concert this year in Kent, What have we done wrong?

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Pam, It’s just the way the promoters have planned the tour with the venues that were available. Hope you can get to one of the many other venues that David will be performing at.

  15. Christine says:


    Very disappointed to have missed tickets to David’s latest tour.

    It is very disappointing for fans who do not use social media as we have no way now of knowing what is going on, apart from checking website every day, which is not always possible. The Newsletter was a much better idea. Again, not everyone uses social medial.

    Very disappointed fan, who has been to many concerts in the past

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Christine,
      Sorry you feel that way. All the details were posted on here first and there are tickets still available at most venues. Hope to see you on the tour.
      Kind regards
      D E Management

  16. Nicki Freeman says:

    Dear David
    Please would you be able to send an autograph for ‘Lisa’?
    I work with clients with Dementia and Lisa is a big fan of yours – it would make her day to have your autograph on her wall. Her favourite song is ‘Hold me close’.
    We are making a scrapbook of all of her favourite memories – she would like to make some pages about her favourite star! I do hope you can help!
    Please contact me for my postal address, thank you,
    Nicki, Sixty Plus With Us, Brighton.

  17. Terri Fraser says:

    Went to see WOTW in early April and really enjoyed it, you were brillian as always, so sad that this year’s tour will be the last! I have tickets for the London show and can’t wait!
    I have been a fan since 1973, would it be possible to have a signed photo please?

  18. June Chilton says:

    David, A big thank you to you and your wonderful admin team for the signed photograph. It realy made my day

  19. val says:

    Thanks for the pictures, my friend was over the moon,
    looking forward to the tour.

  20. Mary Mullett says:

    David, Fantastic last day of War Of The Worlds. Looking forward to five shows in November. Can I request On And O n please ? Thank you.Mary.

  21. Elizabeth Holroyd says:

    Thanks so much for sending my friend Dawn a signed photo she was so pleased. So looking forward to November. Elizabeth x

  22. Kay smith says:

    Good morning David, I’ve had an idea for the tour, my daughter has just booked tickets for McFly’s anthology tour where they are going to play ever song over 3 nights from their 5 albums. So I thought you could do the same and you’d be on stage for ages, you know how much we’d all enjoy that. Seriously I’m sorting through all of your vinyls at the moment, so I’ll send some suggestions soon love Kay x.

  23. June Chilton says:

    Please can I have a signed photograph. I may not be able to see David this year due to health issues. I have been a fan for 40+ years. Many thanks

  24. Val Adamson says:

    Hi Admin
    I thought you said addresses wont be shown

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Val, the addresses haven’t been published on the guest book page. They’ll be in the post next week once David has finished War Of The Worlds and is able to sign them.

  25. Hi Admin
    Thanks so much for your reply yes I would love a signed photo. Sorry it has taken me so long to put my details down but I have been on holiday.

  26. Sally says:

    Hi David, just been reading a beautiful interview in the Daily Telegraph. Great hearing about your life, and what your five lovely children are doing! So funny hearing about Sonny as a toddler!! Never think of you at the age you are now, as you are always full of adventures, going for the next thing, that comes your way! To us you will always be David Essex with a true Gypsy soul! “Outside The Rain Is Falling”….. Love Sally (Essex)xxxxxx

  27. Judy says:

    Hi. Thanks a million times for the signed photo received over the weekend. It means such a lot to me as I can hardly hear your voice now but its deep in my memory! See you at Stoke. Xx

  28. Paula Allen says:

    You were stunning in the War of the Worlds live that i saw in London last night, spectacular show cant wait to see you live again


  29. Jane says:

    Have booked tickets for the November tour via gigs and tours. Have been advised that we will probably not receive the tickets until the week of the concert. Could you please let me know if this is normal practice when booking this way. Have always booked direct with the theatre before and received tickets within 3 or 4 days. Many thanks

  30. jayne.lambeth says:

    Thank you very much for the signed photograph, it was very much appreciated, it certainly put a hugh smile on my face on opening , also on my friends when i passed hers on.
    Thank you so much.
    Jayne Lambeth.

  31. Elizabeth Holroyd says:

    Hi been a fan all my life got my vip ticket booked for Nottingham and I am coming to Blackpool got row J with my friend. My friend doesn’t have a lot of money but is coming with me. I was wondering if I could trouble David for a signed photo her name is Dawn. It would make her a day. By the way would just like to say Thank you David for being such a gentleman every time you always take time to talk to all your fans. Being part of the DEGC has been a pleasure. I know you said it’s your last tour but I hope you keep doing a little something. Thanks Elizabeth x

  32. Angela says:

    Hi David, booked VIP tickets for your last tour. Been a fan since 13 yrs old 1973 would it be possible to have a signed photo please. Not sure where I leave my home address but my email should be on site for me to pass on my home addy. Thank for all the hard work put into this site etc.

  33. Cindy says:

    Been a fan my entire life! I’ve never had the privilege of seeing David live as I’m Australian and wasn’t able to see him down here. And now your last three is coming and I could never afford to fly to the UK ( though I’d love too ) I’m fifty on the 20/6/2017 and I’d truly love a signed photo from the gorgeous Mr E! Thanks for all the joy you’ve given me over the years.

  34. Frances lee says:

    Thankyou for my signed photo arrived today brought a a big smile to my face after a sleepless night with my little ones ! Can’t wait to see you in sheffield in november , and waiting to see if can get tickets for liverpool or blackpool as well x

  35. Cheryl Brown says:

    Very sad to hear this is your last tour. Good luck for the future. I have enjoyed every concert you have performed in Newcastle upon Tyne. What a miss you will be xx

  36. Val says:

    Hi David,
    Please could I have a sign picture of you, so looking forward to seeing you later this year, I would love to hear you sing Windows, but being that it was not well known, I dare say you wont sing it, enjoy the tour.

  37. Diane Pursglove says:

    Hi David,
    It was great to see you on Saturday, my sister and I have been fans for many years. we were lucky enough to walk down the road with you and have a chat, (that made my day) , We are coming to see you in November in London, can`t wait , such a shame it will be the last tour, but hope to see you in other things .
    You truly are a star, keep smiling .

  38. Mary Mullett says:

    Da vid ,Thank you for letting me have a photo of you after War Of The Worlds on Saturday. I’m rea!!y enjoying the show .See you on 30th April for another breathtaking performance, Mary

  39. Janet Vardy says:

    Please could I have a signed photo thank you

  40. Jan says:

    1983 my sister, Karen, persuaded me to go with her to your concert at Blackpool Opera house. You allowed people to take photographs. I remember Karen being overwhelmed and going to the stage, with others, the others took their photos but she froze, you posed for her until she could takke the photo. Since then she has studied and loved working with and helping autistic children. Unfortunately one older child kicked a baseball and the result was Karen’s brain tells her she is lying down. Karen has to fight her brain to stay upright. Last year she lost her life long partner, last week i was told you were completing your last tour and managed to buy tickets for Blackpool,
    I am so pleased to be able to bring her to your last concert.

  41. Gill Gordon says:

    Hi David, I’ve got my tickets for Manchester really looking forward to it. How about singing On My Bike not heard you do that one for a long time. Since this is going to be your last tour a DVD would be lovely. xx

  42. Catherine says:

    Hi David, myself and my sister are coming to see you at the civic in Wolverhampton it’s a present for my sister as she was 60 in March and we both love co I got to see you it will be at least our tenth time. It would really finish my sisters special birthday year of if she could have a signed picture oh you. Cannot wait till November hope tickets will be her soon.

  43. Catherine whitehouse says:

    Yield and my sister will becoming to see you at Wolverhampton it will be our tenth time. Would be lovely if we could get a signed photo as my sister as celebrated a big birthday this year.

  44. Linda & Neil says:


    We saw War of the Worlds recently and were blown away with the music and special effects.
    Remembering all the lyrics to the Artilleryman role David had previously performed and was delighted that he still was part of it. He was great to watch and listen to as always. The whole show was spectacular.

  45. Christine Mitchell says:

    Got my tickets for Cardiff. I’ve a fan since I was a child so it means so much to be going to David’s last tour. Could I possibly have a signed photo?

  46. Julie Price says:

    A signed photograph would be amazing if there’s any chance it would be extremely appreciated Xxx

  47. debbie says:

  50. Kelly Whitlam says:

    I have front row tickets booked for Hull!! Yay!! My ambition is to meet David himself one day.. I have stood many times outside the stage door to no avail :-( Im thought of as a bit sad by many of my friends as im 34 and i have been an enormous fan since i was 13 when all my friends were into take that!! Could I please have a signed photo, as I really dont believe i will ever meet David to get him to sign one for me personally. I missed meeting him at all the fun of the fair for my 28th birthday in London by about 2 mins in the theatre when he held his q and a session, but I still live in hope!! My current favorite song is Dance with me
    Yours in hope

  51. Julie matthews says:

    Hi was asking if at all I u could plz send me a signed photo of David plz been a fan of him for many years thanksx

  52. karen vaton says:

  53. Sue Housley says:

    Hi, i know this is really cheeky and a big ask, but would it be possible to send me a signed photo. I have been a fan sine the 70s and this would be my dteam come true. Will be seeing David in Oxford in November. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

    From Sue Housley.

  54. Jenny says:

    Hi David,if possible could you sing Stay With Me Baby or Ships That Pass In The Night hope these are songs you would maybe sing take care love always Jenny (from Dorset)xx

  55. Lesley says:

    Hi David, still can’t quite believe this is going to be the last tour, even so I am looking forward to seeing you at London, Southampton and Southend and am still hoping that I have dropped enough hints that for my birthday I would like a ticket to Wolverhampton, I am sure my husband will not let me down, he knows how much I love the concerts and you, so much so that we had to change the date of our engagement some 29 years ago so that I could see you at Fairfield Halls. I am very lucky that I am able to come and see you, but I know a lot of people for whatever reasons will not be able to get to any of the concerts, is there any chance that there will be a DVD please? Look forward to seeing you in November and congratulations on the success of WOTW my Mum and I both thought it was great and are hoping to come again before the end of the run. Loads of love xxx

  56. Jill Cassidy says:

    Hi David thanks for the lovely signed photo which arrived today really appreciated love JIll Cassidy

  57. Judy says:

    Hi! Fantastic news but not so as its the last tout. Tickets for Stoke and can’t wait! Followed you forever and always will. Please can I have a signed photo? I am hard of hearing but sure be able to pick the songs out. Xx

  58. Julie says:

    Hi David
    All booked for your concert in Hull, can’t wait :)
    See you in November.
    Love and best wishes Julie

  59. Richard says:

    Hi David/Admin

    PS would it be possible to get a signed photo?
    Thanks Richard

  60. Jill Cassidy says:

    Please can I have a signed photo from David .Thanks Jill Cassidy

  61. Val says:

    Hi David
    I have just brought tickets to see you in Leicester and Nottingham both VIP as like Lynne says and I agree with her for you to ask people not to stand in front of us.

    Could you do a show in York and Wavendon please? good luck with this Tour.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Val, We will inform security in all the venues to attempt to stop people running down the front, but of course this is not guaranteed. Hope you have a great time.

  62. Lesley Hough says:

    Just booked tickets for the Leicester concert. Can’t wait for it. I ”LL BE MISSING YOU X X X

  63. Jenny says:

    Just not quite quick enough to get the best seats in the house dammit!
    But I have booked for 3 dates now – how could I not? And I’m even bringing my new(ish) partner along to the BIC…
    It really doesn’t seem that long since I saw that handsome young man with the curly hair and the cheeky grin on the TV in Godspell! Where has it all gone?
    Well actually on loads of music, lots of concerts, fab musicals and books and rhymes – all done by the one man to whom I want to say a very big thank you – you have brightened my life with your talent and your music
    So enjoy your family and your “retirement” David – but I bet this won’t be the last we see of you as another project will undoubtedly grab you and you will be back to it again x

  64. kim says:

    got my tickets for Nottingham rock on

  65. Nikki Desborough says:

    Absolutely devastated that we will be ‘missing you’ this time. You aren’t coming to Peterborough and unfortunately, disability means we can’t travel. What are we going to do?

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Nikki, I’m sorry hear that. It’s not such a big tour this time but still 21 dates touring the UK is a lot. Unfortunately Peterborough is one that the promoters haven’t included this time and it may just be that the venue wasn’t available.

  66. jayne. lambeth says:

    Hi David, my friend and i have just purchased tickets for missing you concerts at the Symphony Hall Birmingham and The Civic Hall Wolverhampton, we are upset that this maybe your last tour, we will certainly be missing you. We are looking forward to November for these concerts as it has been a long time coming.

  67. Di Evans says:

    Hi David I am so thrilled about your tour in November. Just booked the Regent theatre in Stoke. I first saw you in concert when I was 17, I am 53 next month and I have seen every concert tour since then. Thankyou for being such a wonderful entertainer. See you in Stoke x

  68. Lynne Simmons says:

    With the tour tickets at the VIP prices, please please please dont allow the other seats to run up the front when david comes on stage, or before. Make announcements at the start….. please. Thank you….

  69. Jill Cassidy says:

    Thanks for letting me know Glasgow hasn’t been cancelledcancelled did book via link and it took payment so all should be ok thank goodness I have telephoned twice and they told me twice it’s been cancelled I am going to phone them back again today so happy and relieved to know I am going to see David again in November.Thanks for your help.ROCK ON AND ON JILL Cassidy.

  70. Jill Cassidy says:

    Hi David your tour date for the kings in Glasgow has been removed from their website so can only assume it has indeed been cancelled .Will another Scottish venue take its place-please! let me know as I would like to book .Thanks. Jill Cassidy. Dundee.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Jill, It hasn’t been cancelled. Have you tried booking through the link on this website?

  71. brenda preece says:

    I was so disapointed when i tryed to book tickets for the tour at the symphony hall as i was lead to believe as a fan i could get them before they went on sale to the public but when i tryed i was told unless i wanted VIP tickets or a member of the symphony club. I could not have them. So now i have to take pot luck where i get them.

    • Essex Admin says:

      I’m sorry to hear that, I will get on to the promoter to see what’s going on. Did you click on to the link or ring the venue?

  72. sally says:

    Hi David, Really looking forward to I’ll Be Missing You Tour, we are sure going to be missing you! Love Sallyxx (Essex)

  73. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, I don’t think I could cope with another day like yesterday, what a stressful day, it was a good job my son was on hand or I wouldn’t have stood a chance to get my front row seats. I know it wasn’t your fault but g & it’s made it very difficult for those of us who are not computer savvy. Can’t wait for November, bring it on, love Kay x

  74. Viv says:

    Hi Is it possible to send me a signed pic please? X

  75. Susan says:

    David good luck your last tour all best be very sad . do cd or dvd its up too you David from Australia

  76. Sally from Somerset says:

    What a stressful day! took time off work and managed with the help of my wonderful Son to get tickets for Wolverhampton (my first ever concert in 1975), Blackpool, London, Cardiff & Bristol (2 VIP front rows, 1 front row circle, 1 2nd row and 1 end of aisle!) Hoping to add Bournemouth & Nottingham. Whole family will accompany me to Wolverhampton as I am sure it will be quite emotional – David there has been much criticism of the ticket prices but still we come ! You are one very special person and we will be missing you. It is hard to believe it’s 40+ years since my first concert so many happy memories from your music, theatre and books and lots of lovely people along the way – Thank You – Sally from Somerset xx

  77. Julie sheppard says:

    Have been a fan since 1974 and been to concerts every year and just feel so sad it will be the last – got tickets for Oxford and the final one – would so love a personally signed photo to keep with the last programme please

  78. lorraine says:

    tickets bought for London…..yippee!

  79. ros says:

    booked for a v.i.p. trip to bournemouth on the 18th nov i am really looking forward to it …the first concert i went to was 40 yrs ago how could i miss this one xxx

  80. Debbie Taylor says:

    Car,t wait to see your show in southampton in November love all your songs .have most of your cd and videos.

  81. Judy says:

    Hi! Just booked for Stoke in November. I am hard of hearing but want to see you even if struggle to hear! But sure it’s gonna be alright and at least we’ll be together! Xx

  82. Krissy Fielder says:

    In the vip area do carers have to pay for full price tickets also, even if they are with a disabled person, at any of the venues

    • Essex Admin says:

      I think that’s a question for the venue you’re booking through, sorry I can’t help anymore than that.

  83. Sue says:

    Hi David and all readers
    David did say this would probably be the last UK tour. He has not said he is retiring completely. Am sure we will still see him in other ways and shows, there will always be things he is offered that he won’t turn down ! So looking on the bright side.
    Can understand that lots cannot travel to venues. Impossible for David to cover every town and city that he has visited in the past. But why not make a little break of it and stay over. Someone is flying over (on their own and nervous flyer) from Northern Ireland and making it a London weekend break whilst over here.
    Good luck all !

  84. Julie says:

    Got my ticket for Oxford yeh !!!!
    Sorry to hear the negative comments about ticket prices and lack of venues.
    Tickets for concerts are dearer these days and David can only do so many dates. If fans really want to see David on his last tour they will have to travel and pay. Most concerts are in large venues in London or Birmingham now anyway.
    I for one are happy to pay to see the artist l have been a fan of since 1973. And to wish him well and to say thank you .


  85. wendy oakley says:

    hello david

  87. debbie says:

    LOL…….I’ve still got ticket stubs from 1974 to now…I paid £1.25 in November 74, £1.00 in November 76. …bit dearer this time !!!!!! Xx

  88. Gary clement says:

  93. alan eason says:

    would have thought that it being the last tour there would be more dates so a lot of fans could get to see him ,think a lot of fans will feel let down how sad

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Alan, sorry you feel that way as most artists don’t do nearly as many dates as David Essex

  94. Jill Cassidy says:

    Hi David-would it be possible to have a DVD of the last tour really hope so I am sure it would really sell and would be lovely for all the Jill Cassidy.

  95. Vicky Thomas says:

    Hi, it’s my mum’s 60th birthday on July 23rd. I’m going to try and get us tickets to see David Essex as a surprise. If possible could I get David’s autograph to put in her birthday card? She would love that! Thank you!!

  96. jo bowen says:

    I think you are fab. ive been a fan of yours since I was 14 and im now 45.

  97. Debbie says:

    Cant wait for sale of the tour tickets, seen you so many times, but its never enough. so sad its your last tour, but think you’ve earned a well deserved break. you are amazing David in all aspects of show business. x x

  98. Jill Cassidy says:

    David-thankyou so much for coming to Glasgow -I am so looking forward to seeing u in November at the kings.Thanks for bringing me so much happiness with your music-I opened the Jackie and fell in love before I heard your music.I will be missing you after novemberhowever you deserve a great retirement with your family . Rock on .love Jill Cassidy. Dundee.

  99. Val says:

    Hi David,
    Brilliant news of your tour, but sad that you say its your last one, so I thank you for your music over the years, I still think you are fantastic and hoping to see you on this tour, will you be meeting your fans before the show or you not bothered to do it? as I for one would love to have a photo with you as it will be special time. I have been a fan since you first ever started, and do wish you well in what ever you do.
    Kind regards

  100. Teresa says:

    David no tours booked for Kent so far, is this true so disappointed I wanted to bring my granddaughter. The Marlowe Canterbury or Lees Cliffe Folkestone or The Winter Gardens Margate or all of them would be really good thanks

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Teresa, These are the final dates that David will be doing. Hope you can make one of the venues.

  101. Carol Coles says:

    Hi was wondering how you get to order on the fan pre order date it says go to link but just says can order on Wednesday instead of Friday. Do you need to be in any special cluub or have a special code to be able to order on Wednesday before they go on open sale Friday. Thank you for your help carol from Banbury xx

  102. Tina says:

    Really Disappointed that there are no dates for East Anglia, I am willing to travel to Norwich, Peterborough, Kings Lynn or Cambridge but none of these are on the list a shame for all the fans in this area. To travel to Ipswich would mean a 2 hour drive and would mean me taking time off work which being self employed I cannot afford on top of travel and ticket prices. So no tout for me and I would think lots of others as well a shame as I have been a fan since 1973 and being to many tours over the years.

  103. Julie says:

    Hi David

    So excited you are coming to Hull on the 12th November, can’t wait!
    Thank you so much.

    Thank you again for coming to Hull :)
    You have made me very happy.
    Love Julie

  105. Diane Woods says:

    Thanks for listing the tour dates, great to have something to look forward to now in the winter months, shocked that neither Leeds or Bradford are on there, why have you suddenly gone off us Tykes? Well looks like even more travelling, last tour so it has to be done, xx

  106. sue says:

    great to see u are doing a tour , cant wait to see you in London

  107. lorraine says:

    sad to see that us in the south east have been left out.
    normally david would play the Fairfield halls but as that venue will be out of action, I would have hope for a gig at the Churchill in Bromley.
    are any more dates going to be released.?

  108. Kay smith says:

    Hi david , a good start to a Monday morning, thanks for the tour dates, can’t wait to get my tickets love Kay x

You have been a star in my life for so long & I’m going to miss you so much, so looking forward to the tour, I’ll be at as many as I can as always, looking forward to seeing you soon love from Denise xxxx

    Hi David
    Your last tweet brought a massive gasp from me and I am sure all of your fans. I have been a fan and thoroughly enjoyed all your concerts for over 40 years. I am really looking forward to seeing you in November but it will be extremely emotional that this could be your last tour. Love always Julie (from Hull) x

  123. Linda Davison says:

    Great news about the tour. I have seen you perform at Newcastle City Hall on several wonderful occasions and have some fantastic brochures in my collection. So excited

  124. Joy Rose says:

    Am soo soo excited. Having followed David for more years then I would like to admit to, I didn’t think I would be able to get to London to see WOTW, but have managed to get a couple of days of work so will be there on 11/4 with my friend and fellow David fan. Any chance of a photo at the end of the show! Would really make our year,x

  125. Janet Simpson says:

    Hi David,

    Thank you for a brilliant show on Saturday last (12th) . I came to the Matinee performance and you made my world by having your photo taken with me after the show. I have followed you for the past 40 plus years, been to concerts and shows by the dozens. You made my dream come true at long last. Thank you so much. Jan xxx

  126. Marilyn White says:

    I am absolutely fuming – it never says on here what is coming up regarding David’s tours/shows. I have just found out (too late) that he was appearing in London Dominion Theatre in War of the Worlds!!!!!!!!! I was in London when it commenced so could have gone. I live in Somerset .

  127. Lesley Hough says:

    Hi David, I can’t get to see the show , but love a signed photo of you for my birthday on the 17th March. I am disabled so hopefully I will be able to see the tour if one of the shows are near me.

  154. Richard Elliott says:

    As its my wife, Dawn’s birthday in May I am treating her to a weekend at Donnington park World Superbikes. Yes I know I spoil her.
    She was miffed last year to find out after the race that you were presenting the cups and we were stood nearby and did not realise.
    If you are there this year it would be great to say hello as she is a great fan and it would make up for missing you when you were ill and unable to perform All the fun of the fair in Bristol a few years ago.
    Many thanks

  155. Amanda says:

    Hi David how do I go about getting a signed photo please could you tell me please

  162. Donna says:

    I received The David Essex Album on CD that I ordered a few days ago today and I’ve already played it. I purchased the Album for ” Rock On”, “Gonna Make You A Star ”
    and ” Hold Me Close” due to being obsessed with those songs when I was little.
    I love the entire album which consists of 20 songs, and the songs that I know
    sound like i’m hearing them for the first time all over again…… I wish you continued success in all you do in 2016 and beyond.

  163. Andy says:

    Hi, just wanted to say thank you.
    My Great Aunt, who is 102, really loves the show you put on at Christmas at the Meanwood.

EastEnd fun! Love Sallyxx(Essex)

  193. sav says:

    Dear David,

    Here is a silly track I did with a friend of mine based on a true story of taking my girlfriend to see ‘That’ll be the day’ and I was a bit fed up of her obsession with you. Especially as she had a poster on her bedroom wall too!

  194. Anne Nash says:

    Hi David, when I lost my mum 24 years ago aged 59 you kept me sane & I looked forward to your concerts to cheer me up, my good friend accompanied me & we stayed overnight at hotels.
    Sadly nearly 2 years ago my husband passed away a month after being diagnosed with cancer, also aged 59 but you haven’t held any concerts for us to attend.
    I’m hoping you do a tour next year, (even a mini one), but please could you include Cardiff?
    I hope you and ALL your family have acfab Christmas.
    Love Anne, CSS

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Anne, there will be a concert next year, nothing has been finalised as yet but it’s something to look forward to.

    Just took a little walk down memory lane with Hold Me Close and Rock On! Love your music…thank you!

  199. Chris A says:

    Hi. David
    I recently bought a vinyl copy of War of the Worlds. It’s the full story telling version and my 6 year old boy loves listening to it. The booklet appears to have your signature and I was wondering if you could authenticate it and if yes do you have any recollection on how you came to sign it. You have probably signed your autograph a million times so it wouldn’t be something you would remember but it would be great to tell my boy the that is actually the artillery mans’ signature.. Thanks Chris and Billy.
    By the way I’m 56 and Billy (6) is also into That’ll be the day sound track.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Chris, it probably is my signature but I’d have to see it to be sure – Billy sounds cool. David

  200. Jade says:

    Hi David
    Hope you and your family are well. Christmas is approaching and I will be spending it with my dear mum who is now unwell with dementia. Mum has come to your concerts and shows the last few years with me, the last one was in Stoke on Trent November 2012. I was very surprised when I told her that you hope to do another tour in 2016 that she would love to see you again.Bless her. I know its early but it is her 90th birthday on the 3rd of January and our family are hoping to give her a surprise party. I wondered if it would be possible for you to send her a card from you. Mum has supported me these past 43 years that I have been a fan of yours and mum enjoys and plays your music, having met you on several occasions. As I realize how busy you are and the time of year I hope this will be possible and can be sent via me..Looking so forward to seeing your documentary that we can both watch together. My love and best wishes to you and your family. Thank you. xxxxxx
    Jade (red carnations and yellow roses)

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Jade, If you send a stamped addressed card for David to sign to:
      D E Management, PO Box 390, Billinghurst, West Sussex, RH14 4BE or if you can leave your address on here we can send a signed photo. ( Your address wont’t be published )

  201. Peggy Thomas says:

    I’m sorry. My whole comment didn’t go through. Continuing…I have a British friend and we were discussing our favorite films. He mentioned “That’ll be the Day” and “Stardust”. So I watched them both and loved them. I kept thinking to myself “Who is this gorgeous guy?!!” Since then I’ve been looking up everything about you. I know your song “Rock On” and it’s a classic. I’m just appalled that I didn’t know of you back in the day for I can guarantee you that those posters of Leif Garrett and the like would have been replaced by you!!! (I’m just teasing, sorta ;)) I just wanted you to know that you have a new fan and I’m looking forward to seeing your documentary. Take care, David.

    Hi David,
    just been listening to some of my favourite songs like, If i could, Lamplight, Hold me close and many more.
    I have been ill for quite a while now and find listening to your music picks me up a great deal, I hope with all my heart that you will be doing a tour next year as i miss them very much.
    would it be at all possible for you to send me a signed photograph.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Jayne, yes David will tour again but at the moment there are no plans as he has other commitments. If you can provide us with your address we can send you a signed photo. ( Your address will not be published on here )

    Take care

  209. Julie says:

    Hi David
    I have just seen your tweet saying it wasn’t you on Eastenders last night walking up the staircase! It was your absolute double even down to your style of long coat, it certainly was the ghost of Eddie Moon :)
    I had hopes you were returning to Eastenders!
    Hope you and your family are well and really hoping you are planning a tour with your band next year and coming to Hull please :)
    Love Julie

    Hi mate u looked very well and happy tonight although would have liked a personal word going to he’ll and back worrying about latest grandaughter by Essex Lyla need ur kind words of support

  213. josette says:

    Dear David, website is a fantastic invention. I’m French and a huge fan from 1975 (I’m 54). On those days, you made several appearances on the french TV. “America” was number one, as you remind it in “Over the moon”. But, please, don’t believe Frenches loved it because “ca ca ” in french means “poo poo” in english. We’re not anti American to that point! More seriously, the big success of “America” is due to its complete originallity (in my opinion it’s a graphic song: you have “musically drawn” Manhattan). France was (is) a musical desert, you came like a meteor. But one day you have disappeared and I really and sadlly thought you have given up the show business or were even dead: no internet to check this crucial point. So what a surprise and what a happiness to see you – via your website – more alive and creative than ever! And what a metamorphose as well! Hope you’ll come to Paris for singing (Olympia, why not?), but I’m ready to cross the Chanel. Anyway,thank you for all the things that you do (website and twitter included) and be indulgent with my english mistakes…
    Josette from Paris

    • Auntie Betty says:

      Apologies Josette, I realise that your comment was for David, but I would just like to say that your English is charming

  214. Paul s says:

    No mention on website of the re-releases of David’s first three albums that are coming out in November, including bonus tracks. Also, David featured in the Danny Baker BBC2 show Cradle to the grave last week (available on catch up). Storyline was that Danny Baker used to pretend that he was David’s brother. Lots of Essex music throughout the programme.

  215. Janet F. says:

    Stay With Me Baby is a bonus track on the CD Gold and Ivory which is sold as a double CD with All The Fun of the Fair.

  216. Jenny says:

    Hi David,have been looking through cd’s to find Stay With Me Baby ,I have it on single record but did you ever put it on CD ?hope you are well love always Jenny (from Dorset)

    • Content Editor says:

      David can’t be sure but he doesn’t think it was on any of his albums

      • Sally from Somerset says:

        Hi David / Jenny

        I think you will find it is a bonus track on the double CD marketed by Demon Music in 2004 all the fun of the fair & gold & Ivory (it’s on the gold & ivory CD)

        Funny I was only looking at this earlier this evening as I was going through collection to put something different in the car for the long journey to Wales on Friday !

        Sally from Somerset

  217. Sally from Somerset says:

    Hi David,
    I don’t do twitter or facebook, but just back from the fabulous musical “All the Fun of the Fair” this time performance by Chard Entertainment Society – a great effort by all those involved. As a lifelong fan really enjoyed the sing-along at the end. For a first night it was a brave effort as your unique style is not easily copied but they did you credit.
    If you can tweet or facebook a big mention for them as show runs till Friday it would be great. I may even go back again tomorrow, great way to celebrate 40th anniversary of Hold me Close @no1, – already had cakes at work to celebrate happy memories of 1975!

  218. Sharrie says:

    Hi David, I have been tripping down memory lane this week and very much enjoyed watching your clips and listening to your music….awesome stuff. Do you have any plans to visit the land of Kangaroos and Koalas in 2015 or 2016?

  219. Lesley Hough says:

    Hello David, I have just listened and looked at Travelling Tinker Man and other rhymes, I thought it was very good and I am glad I got it. I have also watched Guvners with my husband whom did not want to see it, but we both thought it was good. I cannot went for the next time you are in a play or on tour.

    Seeing you ( looking dropdead gorgeous) on the BBC tribute to Cilla Black recently led to my catching up with all those amazing hits, reading Over the Moon, and watching every video I could find on YouTube. A Winter’s Tale is my absolute favourite. What I admire most about you is your sincerity and enduring passion for your work. You’re an amazing talent.A ll the best with your next project.

    Hi David.
    My aunt is going in for a hip replacement on September 2nd at only 49yrs of age. We are getting together this Saturday to throw her a party before her road to recovery starts.
    As she has been a devoted fan since her teens I wondered if it would be possible for you to maybe send her something, a note of best wishes or something? Maybe one of your staff could email me for her address.
    I’m sure it would make her year!

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Kirsty, David would be more than happy to send a signed photo. If you leave all the details on here it won’t be published.

      Thanks for the details, what’s your Aunts name?

    Great to see you on TV last night, was watching Cilla at the bbc, on bbc4, and there you were, singing a duet with her in the 70s. You were singing a Beatles song.

    I have been a devoted fan of David for 41 years! Infact
    He was the first man I fell for at the tender age of 14 lol.
    Such a multi talented person who I greatly admire.
    David goes from strength to strength diversifying
    Whenever necessary. Still a massive fan of your work & you.
    Keep up the great work David.
    Rock on forever, love Raven xx

  233. Michael E says:

    Hi David,

    I have just discovered your music this past week – I picked up a compilation CD of yours in a Copenhagen record store that was running a nice deal on a large box of CDs.

    In these kind of deals I like to include some things that I haven’t heard before in the hope I might stumble across something good, and in this case I struck gold.

    The songs are not all to my taste but about 2/3rds of them hit the mark and I am particularly taken with the track ‘Stardust’. I watched the film on YouTube this week and very much enjoyed that too.

    Best wishes and ‘Rock On’!

  243. Nancy Case says:

    Thank you, David. Deciding to finally ‘get it together’ and write my family’s history for my children before it is too late ( I’m 77) I began with stories my mother told me about her childhood. One story happens to have an accompanying photo of her family with an early model car in the background. I dug through my memory bank for days trying to remember what mother called the man that traveled rural Indiana in her childhood. Her family had five children with my mother in the middle of an older brother and sister and two younger brothers. This would have been about 1930. The family owned a Model T but her mother wouldn’t drive it…so one day her mother directed the two girls to look after the two younger brothers while she drove the buggy pulled by Old Molly into town for supplies. Well…mother’s sister thought it a good idea to crank up the car, put the two little boys in and drive to grandmother’s house just down the road because that was the day the traveling salesman came and he always had candy. I dug through my brain for days trying to remember what mother called the traveling man with the candy. Before I fell asleep one evening the word “tinker” came to mind. I wondered if the word could be correct so I googled it and FOUND YOU and listened to you read your poem ” The Tinker Man”! One never knows, do they, when they will make a difference? Thank you, David, for your words in The Tinker Man and for reading them for me to find and listen to.

  244. Sally from Somerset says:

    David is getting a few mentions on Planet Rock lately. They occasionally play Rock On by Deff Leopard and this morning the fact that Herbie Flowers played bass on Rock On was mentioned. Joe Elliot himself mailed the station with that bit of info. All helps to raise your profile David!! Not that you need it !! Can’t wait for next tour. Hope you do Blackpool this time around? Maybe The Grand Theatre? Fabulous venue. In the meantime best wishes to you and yours.

        Dear david, I am sorry but I need to let u know how dissappointed I am at this website.
        I have been an avid fan of yours for 43 years and even though I have moved to Perth, Australia I still send you a birthday card in the post and follow you asmuch as possible.Back in June it was my birthday and I posted a message on the website asking
        if it was possible to send me a birthday card for my day as I mentioned my friends had made comments had I ever received a card back. I looked at your guestbook website and realised my dream could come true, so I posted the message did not get a reply like
        recent message leavers have and my message isnt even visible. At the time the website did disappear for a while. I am hoping that people’s comments arent picked out randomly? I very much hope I hear from you soon

        • Content Editor says:

  282. Toni Murdoch says:

    Dear David, I was just wondering if there is anyway I could arrange for you to make my best friends 50th birthday year??? You are the only present I can think of which would make her year and actually probably be the best surprise ever in her life, you are the only thing that is going to achieve this, just thought you could pop by her door and knock and say you had a flat tyre and could she help!!!! I know you have been to Salisbury before cos she dragged me along to the city hall to see you years ago and that was her best thing that year!!! We also came to see you in “all the fun of the fair” at the Garrick and I am a musical expert and I have to say that was the best musical I have ever seen!!!! We met in 1973 at boarding school in west sussex and were brought up at “Smarts Amusements” fun fair down in west sussex where I fell in love with a waltzer car spinner so all the fun of the fair really struck home!! We have remained friends since we were 7 years old at a private prep boarding school even though I have travelled all over the world and weirdly we have both ended up in Wiltshire in the same town, this has to strike on your heart strings surely, oh my brother in law is also from the loveliest gypsy family in this area and he married my very posh, privately educated sister a few years ago, have I got your attention yet!!!!! This would just be the best story for Holly Willabooby on surprise surprise but I wanted to ask you not Holly xxx

  284. Joanne Smith says:

    Hi David, I hope you get to see this.

    My mum sadly passed away on 19th June very suddenly and unexpected. We have lost a very wonderful person and life just won’t be the same. Her biggest love was you, always watching and recording you when on TV, went to your concerts everytime you toured and has also gone to the CD and book signings in Sheffield and Manchester over the years. I have also seen you in concert and think you are great, I also went with her to one of your signings in Sheffield a years ago. She was like a giddy teenager everytime she saw you. She has even requested that we play your songs n memory of her at the funeral which is due to take place on the 8th July. We will be playing “Hold me close” and “Gonna make you a star”

    The reason for me posting is to ask whether you can send some kind of memorial to us for her as this would make us happy. We are also going to continue to follow you in concert for my mum as I know her spirit will always be around when you are performing.

    Hope you can help, thank you for your time.

    I have always loved listening sing back in the 70s/80s. Then you joined Eastenders, which I enjoyed watching until you left the soap. You seemed to have gone out of the limelight these days. What’s happening to you??

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Andree, David has been writing that’s why he’s not been in the public eye and is busy on a new project at the moment.

  292. Beverly says:

    Is there a release date yet for the audio version of the rhymes please? I am so looking forward to hearing them as you intended them to be heard. Thank you. Still a fan after 40 years especially as you’ve always remained yourself. You are still the boy from the East End. All best wishes. x

  293. Steve says:

    Hi. I have been collecting the various theatre and tour programmes for David,s performances and I have every tour programme except the 1979 tour, please can you tell me if a one was available for this tour. Thank you. Best regards. Steve.

    • Content Editor says:

    David – A huge thank you for first of the limited edition prints (It’s gonna be alright) A really special leaving gift from my lovely work colleagues after 27 years at the same firm! I understand various e-mails and twitter posts to your team by our receptionist Georgie, and now I am the proud owner of 1/50 (worth leaving for!) I can’t wait to get it framed and up on my dining room wall for all to see. Would love to know which charity(s) you are supporting with this project? Starting new job on Monday so wish me luck – “its just a matter of time, things will be fine” …..”its gonna a be alright” – so apt. I hope you enjoyed your day at the track with Billy. Thank you again, looking forward to the release of the DE story and your next book !

    Hi David

    When are you going to tour again and also have a new calendar out



  314. Arturo says:

    Dear David Essex, in Summer 1980 I was in London on holidays and one night I went to Dominion Theatre for David Essex “Silver Dream Racer” it was a marvellous musical happening.
    I waited a lot for David’s signature, so I lost the tube,..I got a night bus but it will stop at S.W.13 instead of S.W.7….a long way, so I decided ring to Metropolitan Police and I slept there until morning. The policeman gave me a cup of hot tea, great people and gentleman, indeed. A friend of mine lived in Fulham Broadway, my B/B, S.W.7.
    Best regards to you David,
    Arturo from Padua (Italy)

  324. Beverly Treml says:

    Having been through a very difficult time healthwise in the past few months I wanted to say how much watching YouTube clips, reading your autobiography, Over the Moon, and generally searching out all I can about you, David, has been a help keeping me going. You are a big part of the best decade of my life , the 1970s. Don’t ever think of retiring! To a man who has never forgotten his roots and who has shown humility about his success which was hard earned but richly deserved.

  325. Henry Isaacs says:

    thanks again Ben Birkett

  327. Lesley Wise says:

    I now live in Portland Oregon, USA moving here from London when I was 26. My husband just bought a record player so I had a chance to listen to all the albums that have followed me everywhere since, well for ever. The first album I played was Rock On. Firstly I forgot how great music sounds on a real record player with a real equalizer, (one my husband has had for ever too!) and secondly how I forgot how good that dong was and how in love I was with you all those years ago! :-)

    Then I realized I had no idea what you have been up too all these years and glad to see you here online. You look just as handsome! Think I might just have to reminisce on more music and some of your movies. Keep on Rocking On…

  328. Kay Smith says:

    Hi David , it’s my 50th Birthday on Tuesday 3rd March, my Dad brought me my first ticket to see you for my 14th Birthday back in 79, cost him £3.50 back then, i’ve been hooked ever since, unfortunately it’s been a bad 10 months Dads been really ill and last week he’s had to move into care, all of my time’s been taken up looking after him whilst he’s been ill I’ve only had a couple of days off, that was to come down to Ludlow last summer to see you, what a breath of fresh that was! anyway back to it, i was hoping for a tour this year so i could be transported back to 79 and those worry free days. LOVE Kay XXX

  329. Barbara says:

    Just been listening to you on Stephen Nolan BBC channel 5 from 20th Feb 2015. Though it was a lovely relaxed interview, really enjoyed it.

    Hi David..
    Have seen you recently on Mel & Sue..
    and again this morning on Matthew Wright..
    never been in to poetry, but listening to your poems they are not just poems but life stories..
    was wondering if you are coming anywhere near Cardiff to do book signing as i would come along to get one of your books.

  331. Marc Attreed says:

    Hi David, I’m just looking into your fantastic career as I have been told that there is a chance you are my dads cousin (my second cousin) love the face you played for West Ham as a youngster too. If we are related or not you have had a wonderful career and I’m proud of you.

  332. Julie says:

    Hi David
    It was such a shame that you were not given chance to read the ending of your poem about your dad on ‘Mel and Sue’ yesterday. I thought it was rude to interrupt you and the practical cleaning session that followed could have been made shorter instead.
    It was wonderful to see you though looking extremely well. I look forward to seeing you on ‘The Wright Stuff’ next week.
    Your poem book is fabulous!
    Looking forward to the next ‘tour’ with the band in the future, I hope.
    Love Julie x

  333. MB says:

    Hi David I am a newly converted David Essex Fan (18 years) Thats because that is when I met my wife Jane 18 years ago- She loves punk- pop in fact any music – but always- always you are number one. We listen to your music-saw you at fun of the fair and she bought your poetry book this week.
    So this last year has been tricky- she has been ill and her mum and brother passed away within weeks of each other. Mothers day is coming up and I thought I would try a shot in the dark and ask for a signature- I know it would cheer her up a bit- I scored brownie points by borrowing the lyrics to hold me close and putting them on her valentine card!It made her smile! I am happy to send a stamped address envelope if you can let me know where. Anyway keep up the good work – we are hoping to catch you next time you are in Cornwall- you are looking fab- I hope I am that I am so fit and full of life later on .:) Thanks again

      Hello Mat , if you can let us know you’re address on here (it won’t be published) David will send a signed photo for your wife, Jane.

    Hi David my sun Ben love you and your work we came to see you on the 10th of February for the book signing where you signed him the poster out of the window and we loved seeing you. On the 25th of February its my suns Ben 15th birthday and I was wondering if you could send a card or a letter wishing him happy birthday. He is a massive fan since 2008 when I took him to his first concert and this would mean the world to him to receive a card or letter of you. so please please please. If Yes please let me know where to send the address to. thanks again. And am very happy to hear about the new arrival to the cook family so a huge congratulations to you and Susan.

    kind regards Esther Houghton

    P.S please he would love it !!!

    Thank you

  339. Peter Gauci says:

    Hi David. Back in 1962/63 I was living in Forest Gate putting together a band. We had most of the musicians and singers but we were still auditioning drummers when you answered our ad in the paper. You came along, with your Dad driving you, I think, and played with us for an hour or so. And you were good. You had that Beatle/Dave Clark haircut too! But you were only 15, too young to drive and too young to play in pubs so, reluctantly we had to pass on you and we took on another slightly older drummer for the band. You then asked if we knew of any other bands looking for a drummer and we gave you the name of the band from whom our new drummer came from. Next we heard you’d joined them and the band’s name changed to “The China Plates” plus you were writing songs for them and getting some good gigs. Oh dear…what had we passed up? But great to know that you went on to having a wonderful career in music and the theater and movies, etc. I’ve followed your career over the years and just learned that you and your wife have had another child. All I can say to that is “Rock On!” I’m a few years older than you and have lived in the US since 1986 and still play in a band and have great fun every week. Once I strap on my guitar and play that opening chord it’s like I’m 17 years old all over again! Best wishes to you for the future.

    Congratulations David and Susan on the safe arrival of your baby son ‘Sonny’. It is fantastic news and a complete shock as the pregnancy had quite rightly been kept quiet. I hope Susan and Sonny are both doing well.
    I received your poetry book ‘Travelling Tinkerman and Other Rhymes last week. It is a fabulous read and brought a tear to my eye. It is very heartfelt and sincere and an extremely good read. My daughter Emma couldn’t put the book down and read the whole book in 15 minutes, praising it!
    Take care, you will have some disturbed nights and nappy changing ahead, every moment to treasure.

    Many thanks valerie

  352. Mary mullett says:

    Dear david,I love your poetry book .i particularly like the rhyme about music and also the one about fairies. I am working on my own children’s picture story book,so I know how much effort goes into writing.

  353. Auntie Betty says:

    Hi David, I meant to mention the lovely illustrations in your book by Carlotta Christy. Fabulous, thanks Carlotta xxxxxx

  354. Auntie Betty says:

    Oh David, I absolutely love your book of rhymes, it’s so evocative of everything that has happened in your life whether it be about your family or your career and having followed you for so long, brings back wonderful memories. I laughed out loud once or twice (Bankers……!!), grinned and smiled and often had a tear in my eye. Your poems about your children and your parents are gorgeous.
    Your parents would be bursting with pride (perhaps they are..) with all you’ve achieved, but more importantly with how you have conducted yourself with integrity and dignity throughout your life. I also think that Derek Bowman would be so proud of his protege. A truly lovely book and one that I will treasure – it deserves to be a best seller.
    Thank-you my dear friend for all that has enriched my life by following your career.
    My love and good wishes always to you and all who you love.

  355. Polly says:

    Hi David. Thank you for the poems. I was very moved by them. I particularly love The Sprite and Providence. The illustrations are also beautiful and very evocative: a really good match for the verse. I find many of your songs very moving so was not surprised I enjoyed your book so much. I especially like E16, Gold and Ivory and the Forever, It’s Gonna Be Alright and Happy Ever After Albums. I first saw you in 1981 at Newcastle City Hall, and most recently in Dishwashers and last summer at the Newcastle Arena and always love seeing you perform. Thanks again x

  356. Gil says:

    Just read your book from cover to cover, could not put it down, love it!!
    hope to see you soon xx

  357. sally from somerset says:

    Oh dear, Manchester is a long way to travel (I remember from coming up to the lifetime achievement award night) I could buy a lot more books than train tickets – quite a dilemma! But David there is a solution – book signings in Somerset? Meanwhile I will continue to enjoy my pastime of always re-arranging “all” your books / CD’s & DVD’s to the very front of the display rack/shelf in all the shops I find them in. A great pastime that has led to some interesting moments! Sure to have increased sales over the last 40 years or so. More recently I have discovered in computer shops I can bring up your web page on all the display computers in a row ! However, my family usually desert me at that point ! Sad, aging but devoted fan, in need of a tour please, if you have finished writing for now? sadly can’t make it to Manchester but hoping for something a little nearer – Sally from Somerset x

  358. sally says:

    Travelling Tinker Man and other rhymes, such beautiful poems. From age 13 into my 50th year, all of your memories written so clear. A lifelong fan, it’s so true, David Essex, we are lucky to have you. To read about your family, your Mum and Dad, and Levi Leigh. When you take your bow, your curtain call, we love your songs we love them all.We have watched you succeed from afar, amazing with Love, the coolest STAR! s.d(Suffolk)xx

  368. Hello David I have been listening to your Audible Book –your autobiography Moo

    I am not one for reading but was interested in what an EastEnd Boy, made good, had to say so.

    What stands out the most is what a decent man you are,, and we all know, all too well, that there are not too many of them knocking about, you kind of gave me back my faith in human nature and living proof that decent people still do exist, which was nice

    I can relate to the Eastend upbringing that you had

    Best wishes to you David Cooke

    Hi David

    I know you are a busy man but I would be over the moon if you could take
    Two minutes out of your day and call my mother who lives and breathes
    You every day and has done her whole life.

    It’s her 60th birthday on November 30th and you have no idea what it would
    Mean to us if you could do this. Just a simple Happy Birthday would do.

    Hi David, I was wondering if you can help me, I am virtually housebound due to multiple sclerosis and have a lovely friend/carer who is absolutely mad about you when I showed her a photo of you with my cousin she was really melting! Anyway my reason for contacting you is it is her birthday on 11 November, yes Poppy Day, and I have desperately been trying to find a card with you on as it would make her day or perhaps a signed photo of you it would really make her day and I so want to show her how much I appreciate her many thanks still love Winters Tale! Much happiness to you and your family

  412. Gavin Branson says:

    Dave hi, my name is Gavin Branson from Cape Town South Africa, I am a huge fan of your beautiful music and especially your lyrics, they are the best in the world, and only a true poet could write such master pieces, true works of art. Do you know that there is one song that brings tears to my eyes, and fills my heart with absolute awe and completeness. I love this song so much, but could not find this song any where, so I had to buy the record in America, bring it to South Africa and copy this very one master piece onto a CD in order to just play it in my car every day. This very rare song that took me all around the world, was called ( looking for someone ) off your Silver Dream racer movie. Why is this song not found any where, when it is the most beautiful song I have ever heard in my life, and I am just so curious as to why I had to hunt this down all over the world first. Look forward to your Reply Dave.

    Gavin Branson

    • Content Editor says:

      David was pleased you liked the song, I know it’s one he’s proud of. Written for the soundtrack of the film ‘Silver Dream Racer’ and included in the soundtrack album.

  413. Dabu Patel says:

    As a 10 year old who grew up listening to your songs, I am so glad to have found them again and your website. I just loved Rock On and If I Could and would sing them all the time. Now I can sing them again!

    Thank you for sharing your talent with the world and a little girl during a time when all she had was music to comfort her!

    Please let me know if you are eve going to tour to come to Richmond, VA where I reside now!

  414. Dear lovely DAVID ESSEX !
    Let me call you so and the reason is that first I heard you in far,far 1973-s,when your disk ” Rock On ” ( Oh ! DAVID ESSEX ! ) appeared.I was shocked.I opened something new for me,something unknown at that it was unlike the other music,music which being unlike the other,impressed me,by it sinkere kindness.And when I saw your photo,can’t forget it till nowadays.Every time, having got your next disk with great difficully,as the prices were and remain today too high(but usually it takes a lot of time before we can listen to your next disk) I immersed in your music world and imagined as if,I were together with you. Unforgettable time!
    You had everything on your way:success and disappointment,but the time proved that your are “the qiants of music”! I am glad with to every you success still many ,many years.I always wanted to know about your as much.I’m interested in both:your life and work.Will you,please help me ,if it’s possible to know more about you not only as a musitian but as a person.We can understand music though the musitians thoughts and soul even if we don’t understand the words in English.I would like to speak with you about everything. But it’s a pity it’s not possible to write everything in a letter. A letter is the only means communication with you…The only hope to meet you and to speak with you it’s your concert. But in fortunately it’s very difficult.Heardly I when nor be able arrive in Europe and USA single hope if you will arrive in Russia,we without fall a meet.Dreams… It is difficult for you to understand as it was earlier in the USSR (Soviet Union), with what difficulties to us the nextn albums of you reached. I remember those times when each new album got with the big work. Now them it is possible the find – truth bad piracy copies from China. In expensive dear shops it is possible to order and buy original disks, but they cost stand even more expensively the present true price… Now much has changed, I could see you “alive” in video, but remained as before impossibility to receive the autograph of you. I always dreamed, if not you then though musician you which works I really love and with pleasure I listen when some day will come and in my small world of the admirer you as a photo with his its autograph. But apparently it only dreams – miracles simply do not happen, and if are that only for ” the elected public. But all the same, my love tomusic you remain with me for ever. And let dreams will not come true, but I trusted, and the belief and hope die the last… .My letter means you have reached,but I hoped to receive from your autograph-for me it is a limit dreams.With music of you I have lived the most part of the life and I wanted to have a part of this life having touched again by those unforgettable years of our youth by which part and were you.Forgive me,if I am too persevering.The you for me always was and will be that light with what the man lives.The thank for that you is.Let always success and our love will be with you.
    Dear lovely DAVID ESSEX ! I’m very sorry,but I have a request for you.Will you please send me your photo with your original autographs or just an answer on my letter.For me it would like… a present equal “the flight to the moon”! Oh,GOD!But it’s just a dream,I even can’t hope for it.There are no miracles in reality!? Having finishing my letter let me wish you everything a person can wish to his friends:a successful work and a lot of happiness in your life,and also to continue gladden your admirers with your songs.Thank the time thas has presented us such a wonderful singer and man. I want you to be happy and always young!We love and always will be with you.
    Ever’ your Helen.
    P.S.Excuse me,please my English.

  434. Frances McCourt says:

    Dear David,

    As long as I have been old enough to ask “what famous person do you like mummy?” the answer has always been David Essex! My mum is lovely human being who has dedicated her life to looking after and bringing up four children as well being a full-time carer to my dad who has been ill for many years. She is beautiful human being who always puts others first. Not far from your own birthday, next months sees her celebrate her 70th birthday on 11th August and I wondered if you’d be so kind as to consider sending her a birthday message in some way? I know she would be extremely thrilled. I can send address privately.

    Warmest wishes, Frances McCourt, 35, Highlands, Scotland
