    Hi David. So excited to hear on your Lorraine interview about your tour next year. I’ll be seeing you at Southend with one set of friends but super looking forward to going with old schoolfriends to see you at The Palladium. We are going to re enact the day to when we will all be together 1977/78 like we did back then. It will be the 1st time all 4 will be together.
    Might have to dig my original scarf and denim waistcoat i wore. SUPER exited for the new music too. Thank-you so much xxxx

  2. Denise Cave says:

    Lovely to see you on Lorraine, David. Good news about the forthcoming album as I am not mobile enough to see you on tour anymore but will be with you in spirit.

  3. Mary Mullett says:

  9. I have just purchased my tickets for the London Palliadium for next year 2020 this will mark the 60th time i have seen David live ….. i have loved him since i was 13 and i am now 56 … i once gave him a teddy bear at a concert and i even had a West ham kit knitted for it and after the concert i seen him drive away with my teddy in the car … wonder if he still as it now ..?? love you david carry on doing wot you do xxxxx

  10. Christine St.Clair says:

    Firstly, I’d like thank David for the signed photo for my mum. Her op went amazingly! One more next week so best of luck to her. Secondly, we got tickets today for 2 of the tour shows so we are super excited!!!!! See you at the first one in Southend! Come down and say hi, we won’t bite Would love to meet you David. Stay well. Xx ❤️

  11. Julie Ann says:

    I booked for the Lowry this morning on your pre booking system. Along long long away from the front. The old days are gone when you could pick your own seat. The Lowry is at pier 8, Salford Quays. See you next year if my life and health allow me.

  12. Kay Smith says:

    What a stressful morning, with the help of my Daughter I’ve managed to get VIP front row for Brum, didn’t think this day would come when you would give us another tour. THANK YOU xxx Rock on Oct 2020 xxx

  13. Sally Lowe from Somerset says:

    Phew – what a stressful morning but delighted to say 10 tickets in the bag 1 to go.
    I messed up the london one I agree with other comments that some of us do find online booking so stressful I thought I had a good seat and then ended up with one at the back! – But still I”ll be there that’s the main thing.
    Whilst I love that you are doing this tour I really do hope this is the last time I have to do this!! I think I much prefer one off events nowadays (although I won’t be saying that this time next year – Rock on….)
    Looking forward to seeing you and the band and all your great fans all round the country next October and especially the last 3 in the South West – THANK YOU X
    Sally from Somerset

  14. Claire says:

    I am soooooo excited just booked front row seats for BIC :)

  15. Kay Smith says:

    Oh what a circus, Oh what a rip off !! I know it’s not you David but I’m very upset how much your promoters have set the ticket prices at. I purchased VIP tickets for missing you tour, that was disappointing (not the show) you couldn’t pick your ticket, it’s like booking blind. What ever happened to the days of been able to que up at the box office, or book directly at the venue so you could choose your seat. Let’s hope tomorrow’s not to disappointing .!!!!

  16. Julie Harding says:

    Hello I am so happy you have decided to do the tour next year . I am hoping to go to Sheffield and Salford . I have been thinking a lot about the song Shoulder to cry on and I just want to ask if you’d consider doing it on this tour? I have musically cried on your shoulder so many times throughout my life and this is one of my favourite songs. I know it’s very popular along your fans and I would just love to see and hear you sing it one more time . I am so hopeful you might do . Lots of love from me Xx

  17. Mandy Baker says:

    Will the pre-sale of tickets tomorrow include the best seats (i.e. front row) or will these seats only be available when the tickets are released to the general public?

  18. Jenny Carley says:

    Hi David
    Fantastic news about the tour! Saw you for the first time in Godspell – on a school trip to London and we were invited onto the stage and got your signature. Seen you lots of time since and looking forward to seeing you again at Ipswich. Pity you’re not coming to some more local haunts – perhaps you can add Norwich/Cambridge/Lowestoft/Felixstowe to your dates? Ha, ha!! Until then continue to Rock On. Love and best wishes Jenny x

  19. Carol says:

    HI just to say why does David never come back to Northampton .we miss him?

  20. Kay Smith says:

    Oh what a circus, Oh what a show it’s gonna be, I’ve got a tear in my eye remembering all the happy times you’ve given me and all your fans over the years. Oct 2020 can not come quick enough. Let’s hope tomorrow’s not to stressful trying to get tickets for those of us who are not very good online !!! Love Kay xx

  21. Gail says:

    Hi there seems to be confusion over ticket sale dates..poster says 1st November but also hearing friday 25th October..can you clarify pls thanks!

  22. Caron says:

    I am beyond excited!! I was so devastated saying goodbye to him at his last tour it broke my heart! I remember him saying ” I havent died” loool.
    I saw him again at the festival in Southend and just cannot believe he is going to do a solo tour for us all! It is the best news!
    Please tell us when the presale link will be up please as I am not with 02 and want to see the Glasgow one.
    Many thanks

  23. Nichola Good says:

  24. Can you please tell me how I can get 2 pre sale tickets for David Essex for October, 2020 at St. David’s Hall, Cardiff as I under I need to do this before Wednesday. Thank you.

  25. Donna says:

    Have to have a chat with hubby about a ticket or 2 ? Saw your last concert in Nottingham !
    Good on ya ! Better to keep doing what you’re best at !

  26. Sally from Somerset says:

    OMG! I promised myself I would not get too excited (my husband just rolled his eyes!) And here we are my office has been in uproar all afternoon, already marked 9 of the 18 dates and booked the days off. THANK YOU so much that the last three are in the South West XXX – David, you do realise how happy you have just made everyone, what a great start to the week roll on next October

  32. Mandy Baker says:

    I have read that O2 Priority tickets will be on pre-sale on Wednesday 23rd October. Will David’s pre-sale tickets be on this day too and from this website?

  33. Gail says:

    Hi seen tour dates great news but there seems to be some saying there is priority booking for o2 customers a week before they go on general sale is this true pls?

  34. Alison says:

    Thank you so much for my signed photo, it arrived today on my birthday. It made my day! ❤️ Just waiting for tickets to come on sale now. Thank you. Xxx

  35. Lorna Curran says:

    Dear David and Team
    Am I right in thinking there will be a tour and not a one off in a single venue say like the o2?
    Obvs we are a crazy lot of hormonal women and there seems to be rumours over a concert at the o2.
    Thanks for reading.
    Lorna x

  39. Tammi Lightle says:

    Hi David,

    I have been a fan ever since Rock On came out in the US. I literally wore out my All the Fun of the Fair LP! I have followed your career as best as I can, and keep my fingers crossed that I will be able to meet you one day. I will be in Scotland next September, so perhaps something will work out :) You are gorgeous and so talented. I would love your autograph if at all possible :)

    Tammi

    • Content Editor says:

  41. Jenny says:

    Hi David
    Thanks for taking the time to answer my question – I am sooo looking forward to seeing you as many times as I can
    Jenny x

  42. Gail Young says:

    Hi David
    Hope you are well. Our theatre company, (The Cradley Heath Amateur Operatic Society), aka, “CHAOS” , are performing the wonderful show “EVITA” next month. As you played the character ‘Che’ so brilliantly, (and the best ‘Che’ in my opinion) in the original cast, I was wondering if you would be able to grant us a huge favour, please? I am helping with publicity and it would be absolutely wonderful if you were able to send us a signed photograph wishing us “break A Leg” . I would send a stamped addressed envelope for this purpose if required. I have always been a huge fan David, and have followed your career along with my sister who has seen you many times in concert. Many thanks David. I will provide my address if this request is possible. Thank you in anticipation.
    Kind regards
    Gail xx

    • Content Editor says:

  43. Gill says:

    • Content Editor says:

      Sorry your having difficulty. Unfortunately Nyquest are the only ones who can help you, if they are still trading. We have no available copies I’m afraid.

Next year is my 60th gonna be doing lots, to see you in concert will be a special moment to treasure after my 60th. XX

  52. Janice Moody says:

    Dear David

    I am so looking forward to seeing the tour dates on here, I am keeping everything crossed that you will be coming to London, so happy you decided to tour again. Loved seeing you at Potters this year it was just the tonic I needed as I had undergone a knee replacement operation on the 11 March. Much love to you and your family. Janice xx

  53. Alison says:

    Hi David hope you are well and looking forward to your tour next year as much as we all are. I’m so so excited to come and see you again. I’ve been a fan since the 70s and seen you many times in concerts, shows and even in Peter Pan! I can’t wait for the tickets to come on sale.

  56. Julie Ann says:

    David Essex will you be coming to Stockport on your next tour? Sadly I don’t live in Manchester anymore. There is a theatre in Stockport called The Plaza. Remember going to see you once at the Davenport Theatre, Stockport, (1981) and having to leave early when you we’re singing ‘On My Bike’….to catch the last bus into Manchester. I will try to get to see you again….tickets will be a Christmas gift.

  57. Jennifer says:

    Hi now we know when the dates are in October do we know when tickets will go on sale,will this before Christmas ?

  58. Hi David hope your enjoying being a man of leisure.
    Please can you send me a birthday card it is my birthday 26th September 2019 I will be 59 my big 60 next year. I have been to many of your concerts and lived every minute of you and your music. I went to a book signing you were there at Fosse Park. Thank you ❤

  59. Heather Thomas says:

    Hello

    My Sister Chris is a massive David Essex fan and has seen him live many times.
    She is 60 in January and I just wondered how to go about trying to get a signed photo or message from David for her for her birthday.
    I know it would make her day (well probably her life!)
    With grateful anticipation!

    Heather

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Heather, yes of course. Just let us know your address and we can send you a signed photo. Your address won’t be published on here.

  60. kevin brooks says:

    best wishes

    • Content Editor says:

  61. Christine says:

  62. Debbie Cattell says:

  64. Gill says:

    Thanks David you`re a star xx

  65. Suzie says:

    Oh my goodness, doesn’t that just show the fabulous kind & generous nature of David – doing the Sunshine Festival so that his fans who have already purchased tix won’t be disappointed!! Hats off to you Mr. Essex I wish I cld be in the country for this Festival, but I’m still thrilled to have your Oct tour to look forward to

  66. Christine St.Clair says:

    Hi! Is it possible to get a signed photo or my mum please? Her name is Shirley. She’s always wanted to meet you David but has never had the opportunity (hopefully on next years tour?) The first time she wanted to go to a show was back in 1971 but she fell pregnant with me; sorry and only managed to get to the live legends show in Wembley this year with me and my daughter which made her so happy (and me although you made me cry) . She has to have an operation on her cataracts soon (risky op but they’re doing it) so I would like her to have something she can look at afterwards and what better than a signed photo? So, as she lives in Mallorca and I wouldn’t ask for you to send one there, would you please send it to me and I will forward it on? Would be nice if she can get a little good luck message on the back please if possible? Thank you so much! Much love. See you next year!!! Can’t wait!!!

  67. Sally says:

    Hi David, sounds like Gibraltar calling was good! Driving through cloudy Essex today, and, Gonna Make You Are A Star was on radio! My favourite! Hurry up 20/20 Love Sally (Essex) x

  68. Sally says:

    Hi David, Gibraltar’s calling sounded good, and such a huge following as always! Driving through cloudy Essex today, changed stations on radio, and there you were “Gonna Make You A Star”, my Favourite! Hurry up 2020! Love Sally (Essex)x

  69. Content Editor says:

    There seem to be lots of David Essex Facebook Pages,but none of them are to do with us directly. Please see my reply below.
    The dates will be released on here and venues when the dates are finalised. No one else has or will be given these details.
    Sorry to hear it’s causing upset.

  70. Content Editor says:

    The only people who have details of David’s tour next year are ourselves and the promoters. No information is given out to any David Essex Facebook groups. There are no official David Essex Facebook groups. You can find out information on here, @DavidEssexNews and venues where he’ll be performing. Hope that clears it up.

    • S K B says:

      Thanks for the prompt reply. I thought it was untrue but wanted to ask to be sure. Will look forward to hearing the dates when you announce them

  71. Chris says:

    Fantastic show on Sunday, thank you for entertaining us so well and for making the trip to Gib. Please come back soon xx

  72. Wendy says:

    Hi David, after walking through the thunderstorms and flooded streets of sunny Gibraltar and standing soaked to the skin for 4 hours to see you in the classic venue you were most definitely worth it, you were more then on top form you were fantastic as always! So many people wanted to see you but could not get in, you most definitely should be put on the main stage next time you would certainly get the crowd rocking on! thank you David.

  73. Di Evans says:

    Hi David i Just want to say Thankyou so much for the signed photo for my friend Jean. She is really poorly at the moment and the photo really cheered her up. So Thankyou once again it’s much appreciated. X

  74. Tracey Shearing says:

    Looks like you had a great time in Gibraltar this evening. Shame I couldn’t make it, but the pics & videos I’ve seen are fabulous as always. Hope you all enjoyed it. Safe travels home. Xxx

  75. Lizzie says:

    Hi all i see you havent replied to my query regarding the sunshine festival next Year. Apologies if you feel what i was saying was negative, it wasnt meant in that way at all. There is so much controversy surrounding whats going on. They are still insistant David is the headline act, yet youve replied twice that he isnt. And not answering my query it makes it look very weird as to whats going on. August is a busy time for most of us with kids, it would be nice if we could have some idea if David intends on doing this or not.

    • Content Editor says:

      Not at all Lizzie. Unfortunately details were released before contracts were signed. David is conscious that tickets have been bought so has agreed to do the Sunhine festival. Details will be put on the website when David is ready.

  76. paul swanton says:

    The sunshine festival are still showing David as being the first headliner for their festival in August 2020.

  77. Gill says:

    Enjoy Gibraltar on Sunday..we will be Missing You x

  78. Jenny says:

    Hi David
    Fab news about the tour BUT we really need those Dates ASAP so we can all plan our trips! Not to mention the saving up part to make sure we don’t miss any!
    Love to you and yours
    Jenny (Basingstoke)

  79. Denise says:

    Hi David
    Just want to say good luck to you and the band for Sunday at Gibralter.afraid I cant make it. But will look forward to your tour next year Denise xx

  80. Susan says:

    Just booked to see you next August in the Sunshine Festival.My sis so excited,she saw you in 1976 and still got her ticket and was going to bring it with her. Today on their Facebook page, somebody said your management said you definitely not doing it ☹️ Please say your going to be there, really looking forward to seeing you

    • Content Editor says:

      No, David won’t be performing at The Sunshine Festival as he’ll be touring later in the year. I’m sure the organisers will be able to help you.

      • Susan says:

        Thanks for the reply. The Sunshine team are insisting
        David Essex is 100% booked. I’ll message them again
        Thanks

  88. Linda Jones says:

    Hi, I have sent a message to you to ask if it was at all possible for a signed card to be sent to a lovely lady called Paula who will be 70 very soon. She would be absolutely thrilled and it would make her day.

    Thank you so much

I was so pleased when you picked it up….. I hope that you kept it. I am so looking forward to your tour next year.

  115. Lou Wallis says:

    Hi,
    I saw recently on Instagram of all places that David was doing a concert in Gibraltar, it was then on Twitter posted by the organisers ,which David then retweeted a few hours later. My question is,why is nothing ever posted here on the website first? Surely it’s inevitable David’s fans visit here first,especially those with no Instagram or Twitter accounts,it’s not the first time this has happened, Legends,Elf, Potters,all were posted elsewhere before any information was posted here,David’s website. As of yet,still nothing here regarding the Gibraltar Calling Weekend! Yes a lot off fans rely on word of mouth,but not all. It’s stupid to think none of you here know what David is doing next,so why is nothing posted until it’s too late to obtain decent tickets or too late in general? And generally after most fans have gained information elsewhere,isn’t this the whole point of having a website? For the fans?

    • Content Editor says:

      David’s a bit slow in telling us unfortunately!

      • Content Editor says:

        Your point has been taken.
        David is more or less retired now and wishes to spend more time with his family. He has never and still doesn’t take his fans for granted.

  116. Cathy Reevell says:

    Can anyone help me please? Heard a song sung by David on SILVER DREAM RACER film… Looking for Someone… does it feature on an album apart from the Soundtrack to the film? If so which album? Thank you. Cathy Reevell

  117. Cathy Reevell says:

    It was wonderful when you brought your show ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR to the Wycombe Swan Theatre where l work… As l was a 1970s girl, l LOVED the show! Still do! Still play the CD now! I was also honoured when your friend Jon Conway who was one of the Wycombe Swan’s Directors, asked if l would make the cake for your shows opening night in the West End! When l asked Jon what had he got in mind… he said ‘oh just a fairground on the cake’! And so there was! And you liked the cake and the working carousel etc which adorned it, as did the rest of the cast and crew! Thank you David for all the music, films and shows you have given us all over the years. And here’s to many more! Cathy Reevell.

  118. Sally from Sxomerset says:

    Just on train home and spotted “Gibraltar calling’ wishing it could have been Glastonbury Instead – a bit closer !! Still I am sure it will be fab s always – when is David on stage does anyone know yet? as it is a long way to go but I imagine lots of us will be there if we can
    Xx

  119. Sally says:

    Hi David, Just wondering, after watching Harry Redknapp on Piers Morgan, that as he grew up in Canning Town, and was born same year as you, if you & The Lads played football together?! Roll on 2020 – Looking forward to your tour! Love Sally X (Essex)

  120. Jordan Davies says:

    A shot in the dark… however would David recall playing at Savvas Club in Usk? Late 80’s / early 90’s. My mum used to work there along side her husband and was telling me about the place. So I was wondering would David remember it too.

  121. Glenda Dunn says:

    Please could you tell me how to get a signed birthday card from David Essex to my daughter many thanks

  125. Sophie says:

    Hi there,
    My mum is a huge fan of David’s but unfortunately hasn’t been able to go to any concerts or shows for over 10 years due to personal circumstances. It’s a big birthday coming up for her the end of this year and I was wondering if David is doing any shows, gigs this year perhaps I can take her too, or any tours are coming up in the near future? I was also wondering if theres an email or address for David’s fan club? Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but worth a shot, Thanks in advance, sophie

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Sophie, there are no plans for the end of the year at the moment. Any news will be on this website or David’s Twitter @DavidEssexNews

    Thank you for the brilliant night at Potters, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Great atmosphere & lovely to meet up with Friends. I’ve ended up back in hospital, overdid it a tad, but it was so worth it, & I’d do it again in a heartbeat, as I know, ” it’s gonna be alright”. Please say thanks to the band & will look forward to seeing you all again soon.. Again thanks for everything.
    Best wishes to all

  132. Denise says:

    Is there any truth in the rumour that there’s going to be a mini tour Sept 2020??? Or is this just wishful thinking ???

  133. Vanessa says:

    Just got back from potters. Great show but two things David refused a friend of mine a selfie (twice) once when leaving the restaurant and also outside. Also did not do a encore which was a shame. Lovely to see him eating in the restaurant with his adoring fans at dinner and breakfast. Will wait to see where he is performing next year excited

  134. barbara says:

  139. Anna says:

    Well ….
    Who says no such thing as universal magic……..

    Dear David
    I was stressing for ages about potters and having to go on my own.
    Every day, during my meditation practice I set my intention … please please universe let something amazing happen help me to get my sister Caterina a room … ha ha I even bargained with the universe …I’ll give up this ,that and the other all important things that mean a lot to me …. ummmm to no avail so I resigned my self to …o well not this time and so on good Friday during my meditation I said ok universe I’m not going to go I dont feel totally comfortable . I’m going to give my place up and donate it to someone as I didn’t want to waste the booking . It had been part d and just seemed silly to waste it.
    so I thought ok on Tuesday I’m going to either paste here or your twitter page or potters and say can I donate my booking I wanted to give to someone who maybe wanted to see you but either couldn’t afford to or just missed the opportunity to purchase a ticket .so that was it mind made up ..
    Sorry David essex see you another time have a great performance and night and wishing you well . Ha ha …
    Anyway on the Saturday was at Caterina house in Peterborough preparing a typical southern napoletan Easter dish so hands full of eggs Parmesan cheese pepper pasta mixing all up , phone starts ringing and I look was just about to ignore it when suddenly I felt wave pass through me and I thought answer It … It’s potters resort And it was. They had a room come available that morning and would I like it …

    Yes …
    wow booked and payed it so now Caterina is coming with me much to her delight and mine so you see… power of disire ha ha I’m so happy and want to thank all here who kindly asked me to join them if I got lonely …thank you so very much .

    So see you Sunday xxx

  140. Marie Lester says:

    Just wanted to tell David that he is still an amazing songwriter and performer – I have been a huge fan since 1972 I was 11 – I am now 58 and the song If I Could is still one of my favorite songs today – such conversational lyrics – and a beautiful meldy – you should have had a lot more Grammy nominations over the years – but we all know that is so pol itical – live you David – don’t stop what you’re doing – I live in Florida now hope you and your family are well – Thank You for 50 years of awesome music – Marie

  141. Sally from Somerset says:

  149. Ann says:

    David, thank you so much for your performance in Cardiff tonight. You and the band were amazing as always. You were such a gentleman to us after whilst we waited for you to come out. I know you were only kidding last year, but I can dream of riding pinion with you. By the way we weren’t following you afterwards, we saw you dive into the Park Hotel. Perhaps it was just to get away from us, but Sylvia was going for her taxi and I was headed for my train home. Until next time, God Bless XXXX

  150. Gill says:

    Amazing night in Leeds you certainly “Shine Like a diamond” xx

  151. Ann says:

    Sylvia and I will be in the front row at Cardiff tonight. So very much looking forward to it. You and all the band give such a wonderful performance. It has been a joy growing up alonside you even though sadly we’re like Ships That Pass In The Night. Rock On.

  157. Sally Lowe from Somerset says:

    Message to Anna – echoing Tracey’s and Caz’s replies – you are never alone at a DE show, always someone to share a tale or two with!

    “Here we are all together” sums it up nicely eh David? All of us here together, by plane and car and train, we’ll make it all the same, we’ll catch his smiling eyes, we’ll laugh until we cry – what a day, what a time ……… Don’t worry Anna, just look out for the gang at the front of the stage.

    I stopped taking my wonderful hubby to tours years ago so I could use the money I saved on his ticket to go to more shows ! The things we do eh? You could almost write a book!!

    Can’t wait to see you and the band on stage again ……… not long now, counting the days.

  162. Anna says:

    Hello David
    Hope your well
    I’ve just provisionally booked for potters unfortunately when they first called me to book for 2 I was in New Zealand so with the12 hr time difference It was awquard to get through and book . However today sitting in my car waiting for my ayvedic appointment I suddenly thought about you and potters so on impulse phoned them thinking they will be sold out of places rooms and tickets to my amazment they had one room left so I was stunned thinking wow thanking universe god whomever thank you …..thought I’d treat my sister Catrina too however whist I was put on hold channel the receptionist/booking lady says I, really sorry only have place for one person noooooooo so I was desperately trying to get Catrina in can we share a single bed can you put a cot in the room we can top and tail ha ha ha in my head I’m panicking please please please say yes so off she goes trying to fit Caterina in . And I’m sitting panacking how do I go on my own it’s a 5 course dinner then a disco then breakfast along with the use of facilities … she returned with bad the room they have can’t accommodate a cot …
    She kindly held the ticket for 48 hours . So now I have to bite the bullet and think it through driving from Essex to potters that’s ok no Biggy but then I’m going to be there alone sitting at a single table having dinner ha ha then watching you which in itself is ok as there will be 100s of lovely ladies there .so I’ll just mingle in between the crowd breakfast I’m ok with I think ha ha ..during the day after check in I can have a walk about do my meditation and yoga maybe visit the spa I don’t really know but I’m in a dilemma because I don’t want to stand out and look like a sad person ha ha or worst a stalker or even strange so if anyone else is on there own and are braver then me please let me know I’d feel better I really want to go so if you happen to see this one person on there own I’m not strange I promise …ha ha I will think this through more likely I will just call back bite the bullet and pay that’s it then have to do it …..ha ha ha you see David the things we do to see you preform ha ha ha

    • Tracey shearing says:

      Hi Anna, you’re never alone at a DE concert! My friend & i met a lovely lady last year that was on her own & she teamed up with us.

    Hi, I know you probably get thousands of messages like this but my mum is the big 60 in February. Would it be possible for you to send a birthday card?
    My mum missed out meeting you years ago when you were stuck in the snow outside her sister’s house. My aunt helped dig you and your manager at the time out of the snow just outside Kington. For years, my mum held this against her sister Vera, saying if she’d of rang she would have walked the 6miles to see you, to which my aunt always laughed and said don’t be silly it was snowing.
    My mum would be so chuffed with a birthday card if this is possible?

    Just like to say thank you so much for the Birthday Card. Taking time out from your busy schedule during the Elf run to sign a card for me is so appreciated. Hope you had a great New Year & are having a well earned rest, again thank you.
    Love Tracey.xxx

  185. Jackie says:

    Happy New year guys.. Sorry to bother you I really am but I’ve messaged you before because I was trying to get David’s I’ll be missing you final tour CD /DVD I tried again in November but I haven’t had a refund so we assumed it may be on the way because at that time they had them in we tried pats daughter that time, but she has emailed them numerous times. The main reason I’m telling you is incase any other fans seem to get the same problem they have still said they are waiting for David to release more. I’m so sorry to bother you..

    Hi David
    I used to live in Percy Road Canning Town. I think you lived in the street next to mine Clarence Road.
    I remember when you revisited Star Lane school in the seventies with a camera crew and was also filming on Peggy Leggy steps.
    What was that documentary called as I would really love to see that again as I was young at the time maybe eight to ten years old.
    Regards
    Paul Clarkson

  214. Pippa says:

    Thanks again for your help answering where A Winter’s Tale was filmed. I had an email from Simon King yesterday, confirming that his Dad directed the shoot and he was cameraman. It was filmed near Hexworthy on Dartmoor in Devon – I thought it looked familiar! Really appreciate your help.

  221. Pippa says:

    Hi. I was interested to see that you answered a question earlier about the location of the video for A Winter’s Tale being somewhere in Dorset. Bits of the video look like they could be set on Dartmoor or Exmoor. I present a radio show in Devon and would love to clarify this – so that I could mention it when we play David’s song this Christmas. Many thanks in advance.

    • Content Editor says:

      It was directed by the late John King and the brilliant film maker Simon King, his son, who was known for his nature films. Unfortunately David doesn’t remember where it was shot exactly.

  222. Jackie says:

    Hi I’m not a stalker I promise you but yet to no avail I don’t suppose you know anywhere else I may be able to get the cd/dvd from..david did send a lovely signed photo with some lovely words and she is so grateful thank you..David essex OBE you are one fantastic and 100pc popular man..thank you so much for your time and effort to help me much appreciated..

    • Content Editor says:

      This is the only company that is selling them, sorry.

    • Tracey shearing says:

      Jackie, it really does take a Month or more to receive the DVD! Just looked at my invoice from when I previously ordered it & from order to delivery it took 5 weeks, 3 Days to get here. With it coming up to Christmas as well it may take longer. Be patient cos it will get there providing you ordered it correctly. I had an invoice from the Company confining my order, hope that helps.
      Best wishes to you & Pat
      Tracey.

  223. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David,
    Hope you are keeping well. I had to write this, when you do Elf the Musical in Cardiff in December, my nephew Kian Swainston is going to be one of the dancers, i’m so proud of him he is really good & its even better knowing that he is on stage with you David. Good luck with the Musical not that you will need it, it will be a hit. I’ve followed you since 1978, first time at Grand Theatre, Leeds & 45 times since then & enjoyed every show that you have done you are a true entertainer & gentleman.

    Love & best wishes

    Bev xx

    Hi David Essex where was the winter’s tale video location

  234. Fred Woodrow says:

    Basildon Operatic Society have just been granted the licence to perform the regional amateur premiere of Evita. It an incredible achievement for us and it’s going to be extremely expensive for us to produce this magnificent show. As you can imagine we are absolutely thrilled to have been allowed this privilege. We will be needing to promote this show as much as is at all possible. In short, with David’s highly successful involvement in Evita, we wondered if he could help in any way whatsoever with the promotion or publicity. Our production opens on 22nd May, 2018 at the Towngate Theatre, Basildon, Essex and if there is the remotest chance that David could attend the opening that would be totally amazing, or any performance come to that. If this is not possible perhaps a brief note of encouragement to our cast as this is the biggest thing and by far the most expensive show that this Society has ever put on. I hope this is not too much to ask, so please forgive me if this is so. I look forward to hearing from you in due course. Kind regards.

    • Content Editor says:

      To the cast and crew of Balsildon Operatic Society,
      Every good wish for your production of Evita – go well

  245. Judy Norton B.A. says:

    David’s music touched me when I was around 10 years old, his eyes used to melt me. Most of the kids I knew didn’t even know who David Essex was but I didn’t care, I really had the biggest crush on you and my heart used to flutter every time I saw those eyes. Well, I saw those eyes again for the first time today, I haven’t really looked into your career or what you have been doing for 30 years or so but I just wanted to see what you had been up to and wow you have been a busy man. I found my heart fluttering when I saw your website photo. So its good to know that you still make my heart tingle after 44 years. Thank you for all of your music, congratulations on your OBE and I wish I could attend your concert tour next year but I don’t live in England. Anyway, good luck with it all and best of luck. Where can I get copies of your early albums (the remastered ones). Thanks again for all of your efforts and you have aged really well. You are a very good looking man and I am sure that hundreds of women must tell you that every day. Thanks again. xx

    Thanks in advance !

    Hello I posted a message yesterday about trying to get tickets for the Legends Live tour..Well I managed to get some this morning in Leeds and it is thanks to a fan of David’s who posted a link on fb. David has just the best fans ever and the support and help so many have given to me over the years and still do is exceptional xx

  266. Julie Harding says:

    Hiya
    Just want to let you know that ever since I found out that David was going to be on the Legends Live tour I have been trying to get tickets for it. This has been very difficult because I knew about it but the venues didn t. Or rather it was not on their websites. I spoke to someone on Sunday on the Leeds Direct phone number and he told me it wasn t showing on his screen . Now it has appeared on their website and I spoke to someone earlier who told me that to get presale you had to be registered on the legends live page a week ago. However a week ago this was impossible as it didn t exist. I am going to try and get tickets on Friday but I will be very disappointed if all the front rows are taken. This is not Davids fault but I just thought you should know that his real fans who try and get to see him wherever he goes are not always being given a fair chance.
    Lots of love
    Julie x

    It’s been 37 years to the day that you and I made headlines together on the front page of the Coventry Telegraph. I still have the large black and white photograph in my lounge that you kindly autographed for me. Happy memories indeed!

  268. Anna says:

    Dear David
    Just quick question please …and of course if you are able to answer it ….

    I went back to my roots yesterday from Wickford Essex to Peterborough cambs where I grew up …to spend quality time with my family and sadly my beautiful kind spiritual brother Salvatore who sadly does not have long to live … but in my attempt to entertainer him with one of my over exergerated funny story’s your name popped up I told him I’d stalked you but not intentionally ha ha that put a smile on his face as I was telling him I’d gone to watch war of the worlds couple years ago in London on my own and you passed me we both went to same tube station and I was terrified to look at you in case you thought I was following you and so I moved away to the next carriage and got on there I did laugh because there you were few feet away from me you looked so normal so relaxed as any other commuter I just couldn’t say can I have a picture with you or an autograph it was your private time you’d finished your job for the evening so my brother looked a me and Said ahhh you missed your chance and I replied no I never because I stood right near him that was special anyway and I get to tell the tale it’s a moment in time out of the ordinary for a laymen person and that makes it a special memory he then looked at me and laughs weakly, and said you know what Anna I heared he use to go strawberry picking in wisbeach like you did, when you were young with mum ,so there you go , your doomed, missed him again ha ha ha we did laugh but I was gobsmacked naaaaaah no way I can’t even imagine mr David essex doing that you are pulling my leg you might be dying but your not going quietly are you want to leave me pondering on that one ha ha

    I remember I was about 10/12 going strawberry picking with my mum in wisbeach (it was my only pocket money ,) we would all hurdle in the van very early in the morning then stop at the gypsy camp somewhere about there and pick up a few of the travellers/ Romany gypsy so there we were load of Italian immergrants and Romany gypsy. I made friends with a young Romany gypsy girl of my age she use to say can’t come to your house your not a gypsy ha ha ha and of course I couldn’t go to hers but I so wanted to the camp always looked welcoming and mysterious …. ha ha anyway you might have been there in that same place somewhere some time …
    if it’s true
    How mad would that be you of course weren’t David essex then ha ha ha
    So is it true did you really go strawberry picking in wisbeach ????????????

  269. Lee Jay says:

    Hi I want to try and arrange a pre record radio inter view with David Essex, is there an email address for DE Management please

    Thanks

  270. Angela Smith says:

    is there any chance of David Essex coming to Australia – it’s been a long time between drinks.

  271. Tracey shearing says:

    Hi all, just a quick enquiry, something showed up on my Twitter feed saying #rhithemusical alongside David’s name, it then went on to say David had signed up to play the part of Jonathan. Is this true? And if so what is Rhi The musical? Cos I can’t find any info on it!
    Thanks & best wishes Trace, xx

  272. Michael Weston says:

    Many thanks for signing my 60th Birthday card it means a lot to me

  273. Brian Shearing says:

    Hello,all,
    I have no idea if David has any concerts planned for next Year & if my Daughter knows,shes not saying anything,probably because of what I told her earlier. After almost 46 years of being driven mad by David’s music,films,books etc, (I had a brief respite when Tracey left home), I’ve now decided I want to experience for myself what all the rumpus is about! So at 78/79 years old,my Daughter has very reluctantly agreed to take me to a concert,so hopefully,fingers crossed David will do something next Year, my curiosity at this stage really is getting the better of me. But by all accounts, its something I should look forward to, so heres hoping.
    Regards to all, Brian

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Brian, there are no plans at the moment, but any news of tours etc will be on here.

      • Brian Shearing says:

        Thanks for your reply, as you can see from my Daughters reply,i put up with a lot! But happy to say, she is going to take me to the Legends concert in April & shes paying for the ticket,what one yet we don’t know but been told to ‘get my finger out & decide’ because she’ll be booking the tickets asap,so by the time April gets here,i’ll be 79 & going to my first ever Rock Concert,never thought it would be to see David Essex though! Wonder if I still have my white suit from the 70’s? No, Tracey would have me committed.
        Regards to all Brian

    • Tracey shearing says:

      OMG Dad!! I didn’t know you knew David had a website,much less knew how to post on here. I said you could come with me, not sit with me, oh no, you can sit at the back, quietly & in disguise!

  274. Jackie says:

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Jackie, As it’s Arena’s it’s very difficult to do meet and greets and unfortunately we can’t promise anything, sorry.

  279. April barker says:

    Firstly, Thank you very much for your response. I actually found out myself yesterday night when my boyfriend bought me the album! We looked up the wrestler too! How funny! Many thanks again
    April

  280. Sonia says:

    David ive always been your fan but never been able to see you live i was wondering if i please could get a signed photo autograph for my birthday on August 27 i wont treasure it for life xx

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Sonia, David would be more than happy. So sorry for this very late reply, please leave your address on here, thank you.

  281. Marc Harris says:

    Dear David,

    Hope you are well. As an amateur singer-songwriter-guitarist, I’ve always admired your talent, seen you in concert and loved your songs for many years. I wondered if you would be able to assist me please?

    I have been looking for sheet music for your wonderful song Myfanwy – one of my favourites! I have searched on many websites and sheet music sites but unfortunately I have not had any luck so far.

    I have recently noticed that it was released originally on the Arista Records label (according to the info from the cd single available on amazon), which I understand is part of Sony. I emailed Sony over a week ago but have had no reply. Is there any way it would be possible to find out please if this particular sheet music was ever published?

    I would be grateful for your help and will look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you.

    All the best,

    Marc

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Marc,
      With regard to the song Myfanwy, I don’t think there is sheet music published, the song was a poem by John Betjeman ,set to music by Mike Read, perhaps Mike can help,
      Kind regards,
      D E Management

    Paul McCartney’s new song. Come home to me sounds just like you !!!!

  283. E donaldson says:

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

  284. April barker says:

    “I never knew when, I never knew how I’d see your face again. Yours was just a face I’d seen in a magazine, no chance to meet but oh Wotta treat….. ”
    These are words from one of David’s songs. I think it was called The Boxer(!?)
    But I can’t be certain. I’ve looked everywhere online for clues but no joy. It’s driving me crazy
    Music I’ve had for years was all stolen so no chance to check from my past collection, sadly
    Many thanks

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello April, sorry for the late reply, it was the “Zebra kid”. It’s on the “Hot Love” album.

  285. Gill says:

    Another Big Thank You David x ..your a star x

  286. Frances Melvin says:

    Dear David

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

    • Essex Admin says:

      Yes of course, David would be more than happy. If you can leave an address on here we can do that for you. Details will not be published.

      • Frances Melvin says:

        Thank you so very much for sending the signed picture for Sue. It has meant the world to her and will really boost her recovery. So grateful for your kindness. Very best wishes.

  287. Karen Good says:

    David
    Wanting to thank you so much for meeting up with us after Garons Park.
    Amazing day of music entertainment.
    Your performance was just the best.
    Seen you at many venues but this my favourite by far.
    Thank you , hope to see you again soon.
    Love Karen x

    Thank You so much David….”Paws” was over the moon! lots of love x

  289. Anna says:

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

    its his birthday tomorrow etc etc ….

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

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

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

  338. Anna says:

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

    • Essex Admin says:

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

  344. Jan Simpson says:

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

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

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

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

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

  354. Patricia O'Shea says:

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

  355. Cazz says:

    Just a quick question
    Anyone going to Garon Park need to know best hotel to stay in 4 venue if u could help would be grateful cheers .

  356. Gill says:

    Just to say Thanks David xx

  357. Kathryn Palermo says:

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

  358. Chryssi Stout-Yonkins says:

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

    Peace-

    • Essex Admin says:

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

  362. Anna says:

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

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

    Anna

  363. Janette says:

    Hi David just a quick question are you only doing sun in the 70s and elf . It’s just that I’ve been told you might be doing a charity night in may so I thought I would just ask to see if it’s true ..Thanks in advance xx

  365. John says:

    Hi David

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

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

    Cheers

    John

  366. Brian Shearing says:

  368. Tracey Shearing says:

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

    • Angie says:

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

  378. Arora says:

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

  379. Julie says:

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

  380. Janice Prime says:

    Hi david hope you and your family are well would it be possible for another signed photo please to go with my collection if that’s OK loving you always Janice many thanks take care xxxxxx

  405. David Champion says:

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Thanks for taking the time to read

    Yours hopefully
    David Champion
