    Hi, David, my wife and I have been fans of yours since day 1. We went to see you at the Appollo Manchester bck in the seventies, can’t remember exact dates. We now live in Canada, been here for over 20 years. My wife is true diehard fan of you and I would like to know if you had plans on coming to Canada. A great venue for you would be the arena at Kelowna, BC. We live not to far from there. Please let us know if you have plans for a visit. Thanks for your time, John.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello John, Thank you for your message. I’m sure David would love to go to Canada, but sadly there are no plans at the moment.
      Kind regards

  6. Julie Sheppard says:

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

  7. 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

    Anna

    Hi David
    just wanted to thank you for an amazing 40 plus years and cant wait to see what your next project will be. In the words of the song “i’ll be missing you”. have a great christmas and new year. barbara xx

  10. Dawn Rogerson says:

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

  11. nigel furmage says:

    Amazing show in Blackpool David. I’ve seen you perform live in various wonderful musicals, concerts, plays & pantos hundreds of times over the last 11 years all over the UK and you really are a one-off.
    Your talent is incredible as you displayed last night.
    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.

  34. 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.

  35. Lesley Hills says:

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

  36. 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

  37. 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 .

  38. 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

  39. 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

  40. Kaz Scott says:

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

    Lots of love.
    Kaz Scott xxx

  41. 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.

    • 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

  42. 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?

  43. 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

  44. 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.

  45. Lesley Harris says:

    Hi David,
    Just to let you know I really enjoyed the two concerts I see at Southend and London the atmosphere was electric I couldn’t stop grooving and singing, this morning I woke up with a crony voice and it was also nice to see Sir Tim Rice good luck with your new ventures and hope it’s not to long before we see you again xxx

  47. 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.

  48. 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

  49. 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

  50. lorraine says:

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

  51. Carol Lawson says:

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

  52. 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

  55. 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.

  56. 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. ☹

  57. 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

  58. 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

  59. 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.

  60. 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.

  61. 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

  63. 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
    Susan

    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 :-)

  64. Sally says:

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,

  66. 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.

  67. 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

  68. VANESSA says:

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

  69. 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’!

  70. 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.

    Val

    • Essex Admin says:

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

        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
        Val.

        • 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,
            Val

          • 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
            Val.

    Thank you

  72. 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.

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

  76. 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

  77. SARAH BROADHURST says:

  78. 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 ” ❤️

  79. 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.
    Annette

    • 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!

  80. 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

  81. 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

  82. 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

  83. Janice prime says:

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

  84. 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

  85. 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

  86. Denise martin says:

  94. 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

  95. 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.

  96. Janette Rutter says:

    David
    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

  97. 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

  98. 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

  111. Joanna says:

    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

  112. 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!

  113. 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.

  114. Peter Eames says:

  115. 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

  121. 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

    Hi David
    I would love to have come to your last tour but i used to go with my eldest sister each time & unfortunately she passed a way a few years ago (57). 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

    I originate from Custom House and like David I went to Shipman Road school 1954 – 1958. One of my school mates was an Alan Cook who lived two roads away from where I lived in Chauntler Road. I have often wondered if David was his cousin who I met one day.

  175. Julie says:

    Hi David
    I have been coming to see you in concert since the 1970’s – mainly at Hull City Hall but also at York Barbican. I am really looking forward to seeing you once again at Hull City Hall on the 12th November but so very sad that this will be the last time I see you in concert. You have given me so much joy, happiness and excitement over the years. I have always stood near the stage, hoping to catch your eye (sometimes succeeding) and I have always waited at the stage door for your generous time in signing autographs after the concert. I always remember one year in the commotion outside of the stage door, I ended up being pushed through the back window of your bands car and nearly ended up on Ian Wherry’s lap, what a laugh. I will miss seeing you in concert so much but I understand it is now time for you to enjoy more time with your family and reflect on your life. I hope to bump into you one day. Thank you for everything over the years, you are a wonderful man and will always hold a special place in my heart. Love Julie xx

I shouted ‘David I Love You’ and you just gave a smile ‘WOW’ I took my dear Mum to see you at ‘The Swan Theatre in High Wycombe around 20 years ago? I had a seat BUT oh no not for me! I had to be at the front and again ‘We made eye contact and danced to ‘Gonna Make you a Star’ – I saw you in concert in Southampton and again at the front! I managed to get to the stage door to say hello!
    I am now ’55’ so you could say that i am one of your Life Long Fans? I am so sad that when I see you in Southampton on the 7th November it will be your last performance!
    But Hey I don’t mind because I think now its time to ‘Rest and Reflect’ on all your achievements in your Life. I Love You David Essex and always will – Your ‘Lamplight’ will always shine in my window. Please may I have a signed Photograph before I start crying xxxxxxx

    she had a very large stroke this new year she is only 60 bless her. It would absolutely
    make her day if David could send her a signed photo wishing her a speedy recovery
    which would make her feel davids personal touch. one time we meet him after a concert, stood talking to him for around 10 mins then as he walked across the road to his car he looked back and waved and she was ecstatic! we said he was just with us but she said no when he waved it was as if he knew us ha ha but that is his lovely personality thank you

  218. Sue says:

    Hi David. Hope your having a great summer.
    Twaz wondering if you had the time to spare to private message my best friend, who is a ray of sunshine that is always thinking of other. She is on her 2nd round of cimo at the moment and all is going well. Just a short message or fun quote or card. she is a big fan of yours and would make her day.

I can forward her contact details via email if you are able to spare time. Many many thanks :-)

  223. sharon prosser says:

    Hi. Would it be possible to have a signed photo of David please? I have been fortunate enough to have met David at the stage door in Wolverhampton several times, he even signed a T-shirt i was wearing once, however, the signature is unrecognisable for obvious reasons.LOL. I even got the opportunity to walk from the stage door of the Grand Theatre where he had been appearing, to the Brittania Hotel, round the corner,chatting about the weather!! No-one realised who it was until too late! I have managed to get a CD, calendar and tickets signed but not a photo.I would be very grateful and if it is going to be David s last tour(of which i have tickets for the last one at Wolverhampton Civic Hall) it would make the photo so much more poignant. Thanking You in anticipation. Kind Regards, Sharon Prosser.

  224. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, just got back from Snowdonia, my hubby and I walked to the summit it nearly finished me off, I couldn’t give in, the only thing that kept me going was the thought of seeing you in Nov ah ah, I knew it was gonna be alright !! Xx Kay xx

    Wishing you a very happy birthday – you were born the same year as me (you are a month older) and I always say that 1947 was a very good year lol
    I am really disappointed that I have not been able to get tickets to your show in November in London for me and my husband’s 2 nieces.
    My husband was seriously ill and spent nearly 5 months in hospital (3 weeks in critical care and on a ventalator) and unfortunately I missed the chance to get tickets, but thankfully my husband is now on the road to recovery
    Have a great day

  243. Anne Hawkins says:

    Hi David Have a Happy Birthday. I have been a fan of yours for years. I nearly met you once, but to my utter dismay was shoved aside by another fan. I think one of my highlights is seeing you in Evita and I really enjoyed the show. I went on to many other theatre shows after that. I saw you in Tahiti and remember when the ship broke down, we had to wait ages for the ship to be repaired. The talented Frank Finlay appeared along side you. I could go on with many other memories. I can’t pin down a favourite song, each one will bring a memory to mind. Anyway enough of my babbling you must have many messages and I do truthly hope you manage to read them all Have a lovely day with your family. All the best, never give up. We all still love you. xxx

Such happy days and I wish you a very Happy Birthday! Love Julie x

    Dear David I have just listened to the original Godspell LP and it brought back so many memories of a magical time at the Roundhouse.Looking forward to November.Mary.

  277. Ann Morgan says:

    Dear David
    Am so looking forward to your tour and will be at the Birmingham Show in November 16 , you cannot beat the Symphony Hall for a great concert.
    I do not supposed you will or can include ” I Dreamed a Dream” I love your version on Centre Stage and went to see Les Mis because of it, I was so disappointed when it was sung by a women , I never enjoyed the show and still do not having tried a 2nd time, so I can dream but whatever you sing will be great as usual, maybe as winter a Winters Tale would be great as well.
    Up the Hammers and hope to be back in the Prem next season.
    Good Luck with the Tour, from Villa Fan.
    Annie

  282. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, my husband and I will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary on the 26th of July and it’s all your fault. When I first saw him it was like looking at you, he’s your double, he was then and still is now. We’re going to walk up Snowdon on our anniversary wouldn’t it be funny if we bumped into you , as I know you’ve been in Wales recently. I’m a massive fan and its great to have my own d.e the only thing is he can’t sing, see you on tour soon, love as always Kay xx

  283. Lee Hatton says:

    Good Afternoon, I am writing to you on behalf of a dear friend who is celebrating a special birthday this week. She is a loyal fan, and has been since teenage years never missing an opportunity to see you when you perform in London. I know that a signed photograph would mean the world to her, she would never ask you herself, even though she has been backstage and could have spoken she felt it would be an intrusion. I jokingly said I would write and she immediately said lots of people ask on this site so here I am. Not sure what happens now, or how I can achieve this birthday wish. Regards. Lee.

  284. John Charles says:

    Just been remembering David on the telly when I was a lad , My sister loved David and would get me to sing along to his records … Heh heh heh great memories .. I loved the ‘that’ll be the day” films .. Good luck

  296. 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.
    Val

    • 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.
        Val

  297. 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

    Regards
    Pauline x

  298. 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
    Sean

    • 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

  299. 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

  300. 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.

  301. Christine says:

    Hi

    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
    Christine

    • 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

  302. 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,

    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.

  309. 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

    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

    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

    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

  318. 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.

  319. 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.

  320. Frances lee says:

    Please could I have a signed photo thank you

  326. 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.

  327. 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

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.

  329. Catherine whitehouse says:

  330. Linda & Neil says:

    Hi,

    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.

  331. 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?

  332. Julie Price says:

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

  333. debbie says:

    Hi!
    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
    Kelly

  337. Julie matthews 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.

  340. 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

  341. 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

  342. Jill Cassidy says:

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

  345. Richard says:

    Thanks Richard

  346. Jill Cassidy says:

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

  347. 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.
    Val

    • 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.

  348. Lesley Hough says:

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

  349. 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

  350. kim says:

    got my tickets for Nottingham rock on

  351. 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.

  352. 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.

  353. 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

  354. 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….

  355. 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.

  356. 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?

  357. 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?

  358. 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)

  359. 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

  360. Viv says:

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

  361. Susan says:

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

  362. 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

  363. 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

  364. lorraine says:

    tickets bought for London…..yippee!

  365. 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

  366. 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.

  367. 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

  368. 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.

  369. 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 !

  370. 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 .

    Julie

  371. wendy oakley says:

  374. Gary clement says:

  379. 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

  380. 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 fans.please.love Jill Cassidy.

  381. 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!!

  382. jo bowen says:

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

  383. 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

  384. 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.

  385. 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
    Valxx

  386. 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.

  387. 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

  388. 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.

  389. Julie says:

    Hi David

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

  391. 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

  392. sue says:

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

  393. 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.?

  394. 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

  402. Denise says:

    David I’ve been dreading this news for a while although we all knew it had to end at some point, you have given your fans so much pleasure over the years, your music has helped me through some tough times and I will treasure those memories forever, you are a true star, a real gentleman and none of this fame has changed you at all. 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

  403. Gail Blackwell says:

    Before David retires, can you not ask the queen to make him a Sir, everyone else gets one and David has done a lot more.

    Please can i have a signed photo of him, i have followed him since 1973, been to many concerts when they come to the midlands my bedroom was adorned with him.

    Gail
