    Dear Mr Essex, I am locked down on my yacht in Grenada in the Caribbean. Your music is saving my sanity. We had a huge squall. blow through a couple of days ago. My boat did a very merry dance rocking and rolling all over the place. I could not resist to put up the volume and play Rock On.
    Thank you and I hope and yours are well and safe.
    Cheers Jeanne s/v Olive

  3. Julie Harding says:

I was worried we might lose it altogether so very relieved even though it’s over a year away we will get to see you again. I know you ll be keeping safe with your family . Much love to you and see you next year Xxx

    Hi David,
    Thanks very much for the decision to postpone the 2020 tour.
    Totally understandable and expected.
    Let’s hope the world will be a safer place by September 2021.
    It’ s so hard not being able to have contact with my 3 grandchildren and one of my daughters is a frontline nurse in the NHS so lots to worry about.
    Well done to all key workers coping in this pandemic.
    So pleased the tickets will be valid for next years tour!

    Stay well and safe David and everyone..

  9. Nigel Newell says:

    Hi can you please inform the fans as soon as possible re cancellation or re scheduling dates due to Covid 19.

    Regards Nigel

  10. Jackie says:

    Hi David Just wanted to say hello. Hope your doing okay and staying safe yourself x just a memory I have as I was a fan when younger. At the age of 17 I worked in London in the 70’s and you were signing your latest single at the time in the HMV Store in Oxford Street. So I rang my sister Sue and she and her friend met me there on my lunch break to see you with all the other screaming teenagers!! Never got time to get my single signed though but saw my pop idol and was happy with that. Good memories x Take care

  11. Lorna says:

    Just a little hello really in these uncertain times. Lots of memories are up on Facebook. Guess every one is clearing lofts cupboards etc.
    Got with it just recently and am using Spotify.
    Sad not to be able to get 75 tour album to download.
    Loved your Little Richard bits in your ad libbing.
    Many memories flooding back.
    It’s not just nostalgia it’s the music of our journey.
    You have been a massive part in mine.
    Thank You for that it has got me through many a day in my isolation journey.
    I hope that all the family are well, guessing at your age lol not able to see you.
    Take care. With hope, see you in October x

  16. Kay Smith says:

    Hi, I’ve just checked and found out that the Sunshine festival has been postponed until Aug 2021. Do you know if David is still booked to play on the Sat? I know it’s a long way off and none of us know what will happen with this terrible virus. Thanks, hope everyone is well.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Kay, sadly David won’t be performing with the Sunshine Festival being cancelled. They are advertising that he will be performing next year, he has not agreed to that. Hope you and yours are safe and well.

  17. Sharon Prosser says:

    Hi, all,
    In this current awful situation, are we to assume that David’s tour will be cancelled/postponed? I’d got tickets for Birmingham, have been on the venue’s website but no mention as yet.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Sharon, the promoters are awaiting advice from the government as we don’t want to put the audience or David, the band and crew at any risk. We will let you know as soon as we do. Stay safe.

  31. Liz Carter says:

    Hello David
    This is a total long shot! One of my best friends is 60 years young on the 9th August this year. I have been trying to wrack my brains on what would be a really special present for her and you came to mind. She has been an ardent fan of yours for as long as I can remember, and I’ve known her 30 years! She has travelled the length and breadth of the country following you on tour year after year. She has even dragged me to a few concerts in Northampton, Milton Keynes, Liverpool, Manchester where I have had to stand at the stage door whilst she waits for you to come out and sign all her paraphernalia and I take photos! ( don’t worry it wasn’t such a duress)!
    She even won an afternoon tea with you in London,I believe! Her house is full of pictures of you and of you & her together at stage doors!
    Whether you remember her as she has an unusual Scottish name, COLINA – which I’m sure you’ve had to write many times!
    She is the most special, kind, good friend anyone could wish for and I’d like to do something very special and memorable for her on her special day!
    Anyway, as I said a long shot but I was wondering if there is anything special you could do for her birthday? A video message, some song lines including her name? I know this would mean the world to her
    Many thanks and stay safe

    • Content Editor says:

      Hi Liz, David would be more than happy to send a signed photo. Please leave an address for us to send it to if you’d like that.

  32. Michelle Ford says:

    Hi David..
    My name is Michelle…I have been a fan of yours since my early teens…to be honest, you were probably the first love of my life…lol…!
    When I heard you were coming out to Australia in 1975, I begged my mum to buy me a ticket, but no amount of ‘chores’ or promises would sway her…her words, “he is way, way too sexy and you are way too impressionable!” I begged and borrowed and got a ticket to your concert on 14th April, 1976 at the Hordern Pavillon in Sydney, Australia…I was over the moon at the thought of seeing you in concert…unfortunately, I became very ill and was unable to go, I was devastated…then, life happened and I never got to see my idol ( yeah you, Mr Essex…☺️)….
    Move on to 2019, and I found out you are doing a tour of the UK…I was so excited!! I thought…”I don’t care what it costs, I have to see him in concert”….so I finally managed to get a ticket to your concert in Cardiff in October 2020, flights booked from Australia etc and bugger me, bloody Covid19 rears it’s ugly head……like a cruel twist of fate, and depending what happens in the world, again, I may not get to see your concert
    It is the number one priority on my bucket list and has been my all my life…
    Hopefully the world will be back to normal come October…I’m not cancelling my flights etc till I absolutely have to…I cannot miss seeing you again…
    I hope you and your loved ones remain healthy and safe in this very uncertain time and with luck the world will go back to normal and I will be at your concert in Cardiff…
    Take care, stay safe…
    Your devoted Aussie fan
    PS If all is well and I get to Cardiff, could I please get a photo with you…it would be my ultimate wish come true…

    • Content Editor says:

      Thank you for your message Michelle, who knows what will happen but most importantly now, stay safe.
      Best wishes – David

  33. Gill says:

    Thank You David…stay safe x

  34. Carol says:

  35. Julie from Hull says:

    Hi David
    I hope you and your family are keeping well in this awful pandemic.
    I have just watched your last concert performance from Wolverhampton back in 2016, I have really missed seeing you in concert over the last 4 years. I have tickets to see you in Sheffield in October, which was a fantastic surprise that you are touring again, You really cheered me up this morning in these troubled times and I was up dancing in the living room. I hope we all stay safe and well and the virus leaves us in the next couple of months and your tour goes ahead later this year. I hope you and all your family stay safe and well.
    Love Julie xx

  36. Pat says:

  45. Sue Jose says:

    I just want to say what an amazing career David has had and continues to have, in the entertainment industry.
    He has achieved so many wonderful successes and I just wanted to ask if there has been anything produced about his life thus far?
    I recently found out that ‘This is your Life’ did a show with David. I have never seen it as I live in Australia, so was hoping it was out on DVD, or you could send me a link to it as I would love to see it.
    Thank you.

  46. I’ve seen David once (he was brilliant in St David’s Hall , Cardiff) and my wife has seen him twice (she idolises him). I’m on his site to order tickets for his show in St David’s Hall on 19th, October this year. We are both so looking forward to seeing him again. His music covers all genders and generations and he just seems to be getting better with age. Long may he continue to do so. So looking forward to seeing him.
    Best wishes


  47. Kay Smith says:

  51. Mark says:

    Hello Sirs,
    Can you tell me where the video for the single Winter’s tale was filmed as I watched it just this moment ago and it looked quite bleak and barren and was intrigued.


  52. Gill says:

  53. Wendy says:

    Hi DE management, please can you give me some information on the song MOD 1960s i do believe. Is this Davids song? And is it him singing it?
    Thank you

  54. Jan Simpson says:

    Hi David and all the admin team. I was sooooo thrilled 2 years ago when I requested and received on my 65th birthday card from David. Can I be the cheekiest person in the whole world and request a Valentines hello card/message. I am a bit down at the moment as waiting for hip replacement surgery. At the moment I can’t do my live of Walking and Dancing. A cheer up card from David would be the best. ( I have followed DAVID for year, and my friends already joke and say that I should be on David personal Christmas Card list by now !!!!) I know this is a silly request but would make my day. Thank you so much , I guess if I hear from you asking for my address again I may have been lucky . I can’t wait til October when I see David at the Palladium Kind regards Jan

  55. Oliver Lewis says:

    Hi please could you send a birthday card to my mum Ruth?

    Her birthday is on 20th February 2020

    I’m not sure what the process is? She’s a huge fan!

    Many thanks

  56. Sally says:

    Hi David,
    Was great to tune in radio, today, as I got in car for some good music, to hear your interview about up and coming tour! Was on way to Brentwood for Birthday lunch, my day was made – was like going on holiday!!! Great choice of songs as always! Get home and my Grandaughter is dancing to Rock on!! Good start to weekend for me! Love Sally (Essex) X

  57. Jill Bolton says:

    Hello. It’s a bit weird writing this. I desperately want to get a message to David Essex, I doubt he has anything to do with this but maybe just by putting it out there, it might be received. I just want to say thanks to him. For giving my something to hold on to. So my mum died 11 years ago and was a massive lifelong fan (much to the bemusement of her teenage family… sorry, but sure it won’t come as a surprise!) Anyway, when she died we had a non religious service and we had no choice but to play ‘Hold Me Close’ of course. However, Unfamiliar with many other songs and through many tears I trailed the albums and found ‘It’s Going To Be Ok’ and it was like my mum was speaking to me. As a non religious family we don’t believe in going on, we cremate and spread the ashes at the local wind farm so that we can be free in the wind. You see the link. “I hear you calling out to me, I hear the wind whisper in the trees…” I’m rambling… anyway… 11 years on, a quick search on YouTube and she’s back with me again… reassuring me everything is going to be ok. So I just wanted to say thanks to David, don’t know what he is doing on this cold, wet Friday afternoon but I just wanted him to know that for 4 minutes his voice has given me comfort and pleasure. My mum would have been chuffed!

    • Content Editor says:

      Thank you Jill, sorry to hear about your mother. I’m glad you found comfort in the song.

    I’ve tried calling the venue but they don’t have any
    Thanks for reading
    Fingers crossed x

    • Content Editor says:

      All I can do is publish your message and someone may be able to help. Unfortunately Southend sold out very quickly.

  66. Pam Ttacey says:

    Can I ask Why David is coming to Glasgow and not Edinburgh.? Its not fair. We love him too and some of us are disabled dont drive and cant get to Glasgow.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Pam, it will have been down to the venues that were available for the promotors at the time of booking the tour and all sorts of other logistics. Nothing personal at all as David has always had a wonderful welcome in Edinburgh. I’m sorry to hear that you are unable to make the concert.
      Kind regards

    Dear David

    I hope you and your fans all had a lovely Christmas!

    Dear Fans – I purchased 2 tickets to see David Essex at Sheffield City Hall on the 16th October 2020 for my mothers Christmas present.
    I managed to get her seats in the front stalls Row A seats 51 & 52, unfortunately she is unable to make it, and having purchased them through Ticketmaster all I can do is resell them. The face value is £42.50 each (I also paid facility charge, service charge, handling fee, and for a pretty gift box) I am happy to sell them at face value or an offer near that and pay for postage to you. Please let me know if you would be interested – I would hate to see them go to waste.

    Many thanks


  70. Soo says:

    Happy new year to you all, I’m hoping 2020 will be better than the past years
    So looking forward to October, much love from me and my Cazzie xx

  71. Sue Jose says:

    I have been a fan of David’s music since I was a teenager but as I live in Australia it has been very difficult to have that love of his music fulfilled. Back then as you were controlled by what was played on the radio and put on tv it was really difficult. I’m very sad to say I have never been able to attend any of his concerts and it breaks my heart. The last concert performance actually falls on my 59th birthday so I just want to wish David all the very best and to let him know I think he was truly ahead of his time with his music. ‘All the fun of the fair’ and ‘Out on the Street’ being a couple of my favourite albums. I have recently been able to discover some of his other albums on Spotify and find so many of his songs so relatable even now. I have been able to source his ‘Royal Albert Concert’ DVD but was wondering if you know if any of his other concerts during the 1970’s are on DVD? This is the only way I can get to feel like I am at his concerts. Thank you so much for your help.

    • Content Editor says:

      Thank you for your message Sue. There aren’t any DVD’s of any concerts from the 70’s sadly.

  72. Christine Bedford says:

    David Essex representatives/agents

    Please check out media on FB relating David’s name to Barbaric videos, ie dog fighting with porcupine – barbaric!

    There are several posts linking David’s (David will always be our number one fan) name to advertisements I’m sure he would like having his name linked to.

    Thank you.

    Mrs Christine Bedford

    • Content Editor says:

      Thank you for letting us know. Of course there is no way David would ever be connected with anything like that.

    Hi in answer to your reply to me I have not received the card for my wife Amanda as of yet
    I put her full address on the prepaid envelope I’m not sure what could have happened to it
    It was for her 60th birthday so a very special occasion I’m still hopeful that it will turn up in the post

  80. Nicola Ellis says:

    DEAR David

    We have a patient in the Hospice who is a true fan of yours. In fact her sister and daughters are massive fans of you.

    We would love to provide them with a moment of joy during this time. On hearing about them speaking about going to your concerts, the last time being at The Albert Hall we thought if we could get a message from you to them that would be utterly brilliant during this difficult time.

    Obviously if you want to come to the Hospice, you will be most welcome at any time. However a simple video message, card would also be a lovely moment for them. Please let me know if you can help.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Nicola, David would be more than happy to send a signed photo if you can give us her name and an address. It won’t be published on here.

  81. Trevor freund says:

    Hi I posted a sixty birthday card with a prepaid envelope to

    Received it as we have not had it sent back to us as of yet

    I did write a covering letter also with it

      I’m sure David would make time for you at the stage door, but he can’t promise anything definite right now, sorry.

  85. David Fountaine says:

    Message for David.
    We spent quite a bit of time together when I was yours and Ringo’s stand in on That’ll Be The Day when you were on the Island and would be great to meet again. If I come to the Mayflower next year any chance of that.

  86. Anna says:

    Dear David Essex admin
    Thank you for replying …
    Could I please ask in advance for a signed card from David Essex for my birthday on 2/10/20 would much appreciate it

    Many thanks

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Anna, thanks for your messages. You can send a card nearer the time to
      D E Management, PO Box 1018, HORSHAM, RH12 9TQ
      Good luck with finding another ticket.

  87. Ruth says:


    Please could you tell me where the video for A Winter’s Tale was filmed.
    Thank you and Merry Christmas xx

  88. Anna says:

    Hello all at admin Essex … I hope you can help I am unable to source tickets for cliff pavilion southend on sea …. I just called and was told there’s no more tickets …wow it’s not until October 2 2020 (my birthday ) what’s happening it’s a year away cannot believe this is crazy …..seriously no tickets …… I so wanted to treat myself I wanted 2 tickets myself and sister but even just one be nice ha ha

    Where can I buy these tickets I was told other agencies may have some ….would you have this information if so could you forward on details. I’d really appreciate it.

    Perhaps miracles of miracles and since it’s my birthday David might give me a back stage pass and allow me to sit at the side to watch ha ha ha And perhaps not …… worth asking though ,,,,, and I promise I’m quiet , not demanding or pushy

    All joking aside if you or anyone here knows where I can get tickets please let me know

    And David if you’ve got couple of tickets in your pack pocket …how much mate .
    .wishing you well gentle man

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Anna, so sorry Southend sold out very quickly. Hopefully you can make it to another venue although it won’t be on your actual birthday.
      Kind regards
      D E Management

    • Jo Sands says:

      Hi Anna, sorry to hear you couldn’t get tickets for Southend. You have to be really quick to get tickets for that venue, they always sell out within the first week of going on sale, it’s always a popular concert. As soon as tickets are available you really do have to get them there & then! Best think you can do is either book another venue, or wait until nearer the time & hope someone has a couple for sale, but that’s like a lotto, if some do become available from someone you have to act quickly. Good luck

  89. Denise Cave says:

    Is there an actual book “All The Fun of the Fair” by Jon Conway please? Waterstones couldn’t help me when I enquired. They need the book number or something. Many thanks.

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

  100. 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.

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

  108. 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 ❤️

  109. 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.

  110. 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

  111. 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

  112. Claire says:

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

  113. 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 .!!!!

  114. 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

  115. 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?

  116. 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

  117. Carol says:

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

  118. 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

  119. 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!

  120. 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

  121. Nichola Good says:

    Hi Dave, I was wondering whether I could make a request please for your 2020 tour. My favourite album of yours is Stage Struck is there any chase we could here some of your more obscure songs on the 2020 tour please? Xxxx

  122. 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.

  123. Donna says:

    Good evening . And here was I thinking you had retired !
    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 !
    Well done you and the boys !
    Xx Donna

  124. 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

  131. 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?

  132. 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

  133. 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

  134. Faye says:

  137. 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 :)


    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Tammi, thank you for your kind words about David. He’d be happy to send you a signed photo.
      Please leave your details on here, they won’t be published.

  138. Sophi Moore says:

  139. 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

  140. 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:

      Hi Gail, David would be more than happy to. Please leave details of an address and we can do that for you.

  141. 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

  150. 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

  151. Alison says:

  154. 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.

  155. 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 ?

  156. 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 ❤

  157. Heather Thomas says:


    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!


    • 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.

    i wanted to surprise her.

    best wishes

    • Content Editor says:

    Thanks David you`re a star xx

  163. 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

  164. 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!!!

  165. 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

  166. 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

  167. 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.

  168. 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

  169. 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

  170. 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.

  171. 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

  172. 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

  173. 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.

  174. paul swanton says:

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

  175. Gill says:

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

  176. 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

  177. 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

  178. 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:

    I want to go to Gibraltar, lol. Last time i was there an Ape nicked my jumper & i missed my flight home, ( not on the same Day)! Have fun, i know your fans in Europe will have a blast! Hope some closer to home make the trip.
    Best Wishes to all

  212. Karen Ulrichsen says:

    Come to Denmark :) :) :) <3 <3

  213. Lou Wallis says:

    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.

  214. 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

  215. 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.

  216. 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

  217. 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)

  218. 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.

  219. Glenda Dunn says:

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

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Glenda, if you send a card to D E Management, PO Box 1018, HORSHAM, RH12 9TQ
      David will sign it for you. He’d be happy to send her a signed photo if you’d prefer, just leave an address on here as it won’t be published.
      Kind regards
      D E Management

  220. Sarah says:

    Excellent article in today’s MCN. I remember being outside the Dominion on opening night. I’m shocked it was 40 years ago, seems more recent than that!!

  223. 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

  224. Gill says:

  229. Tracey Shearing says:

    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

  230. 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 ???

  231. 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

  232. barbara says:

  237. 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

  238. 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

  239. Sally from Somerset says:

    THANK YOU David for a fabulous show @ Bournemouth last night, you and the band looked like you had really good time and we certainly did. Looking forward to Potters – How lucky are we that you keep on doing shows – love and appreciate all that you do x

    I wonder if anyone can help us at Shanklin & District History Society. We know that David stayed in Shanklin for six weeks during the filming of That Will Be The Day. Does anybody know the address of where he stayed? Any help much appreciated, Mark.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Mark, he rented a house in Binstead, Isle Of Wight. David doesn’t remember the address, sorry.

  247. 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

  248. Gill says:

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

  249. 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.

  250. Julie Ann Dever says:

    Amazing fun time last night at legends live Manchester, Thank you for the memories David x

  251. Pat says:

    Hi guys I thought you might want to know, for 6/7 months I’ve been trying to get the i’ll be missing you final tour CD dvd, off David meehen at Nyquest to no avail, I have just received another email saying it may be October before there presumably printing some more then, that would mean I’ve been waiting for over 12 months, he is arguing I had refund but he told me he was getting more in so stupid me paid again then had no refund but I have proof anyway that I couldn’t care about, I know I’m not the only one who has desperately been trying to get this, I know I would want to know if it was me, it has really upset me because it was a very personal reason for this wich I know I won’t ever get now and other fans of David’s, I apologise for going on as I have but it’s upset to say this c’mon wolves on Sunday

  252. Di White says:

    Thank you xxx will get the card sent off to you for signing xxxx

    Many Thanks


  255. 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.

    Sally from Somerset X

  260. 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. If you want your more than welcome to sit at our table with us. All you need to do is contact Potters, give them my name ask to sit with us & they will call me to confirm.

  261. CCazzie MORTON says:

    Feeling forgotten Boohoo xxxx

  262. Sissy says:

    Was listening to the previews for the new Robin Hood movie and noticed that the intro music – baseline – sounded a lot like your song “Rock On”. If you get millions from the lawsuit I get half . Just kidding…. looked it up but have not seen anything that you have a proved it just thought you might be interested after all these years you still rock on.

    Hi I was wondering if there are any
    plans to play in Scotland in the future?

    • Tracey Shearing says:

      Hi Guys, has Glasgow now been added as an extra date for this Year’s Legends tour? Only it’s not being advertised anywhere! I know it wasn’t on the original listings & the arena were telling us that Tony Denton promotions hadn’t approached them for the tour to go there this Year.

    Hi David just to let you know that my beloved cat Twinkle passed away. She was a good friend and saw me through some dark times over the past twelve years. I shall not have another cat or dog as its hard to look after them in a wheelchair. So I will share my love at a distance with Levi and who is Pickles please? Love from Denise xx

  279. Paula says:

    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?

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Paula, David would be more than happy to send her a signed photo wishing her a happy birthday. Just leave an address on here or you can send a birthday card to us for him to sign.

    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.

    Hi guys that’s a shame but won’t stop trying..i have to share this with you pat (my sister) who we both adore david but pat listens to David’s music all the time..her daughter took her (pats) grandson shopping and in the one shop they were in David’s winters tale was playing she said to her 3 year old who is singing this he shouted David essex the woman in the shop said blimey David Essex’s fans are getting younger..ha ha we thought it was hilarious ..

  319. 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.

  320. 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

  321. 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

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

  332. 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

  343. 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

  350. Sally says:

    Hi David, Great to see you, looking well on Good Morning Britain recently. My Daughter asked last night if I had seen the advert with David Essex in his Christmas cardigan for Elf! I haven’t, as I live out in the sticks, and don’t get London adverts! Anyway, telling Mum the story, she hasn’t seen it yet! And then she says it will all be alright!!! What’s the song?! It’s Gonna Be Alright Mum!!!! Would love to see Elf at Christmas! Let’s hope Santa has got me on his Nice list!!! Love Sally (Essex) x

  351. Janet Hocking says:

    Hi i am wondering if it would be possible to have a message from David as its my birthday & i have been unwell. A message would cheer me up.
    Thank you.

  353. Angie says:

    Hi David
    Hope you and your family are well, it’s my birthday today and my husband gave me a great gift to go ahead and buy tickets for elf or legends or both…so after nearly 40 years I will finally get to see you live, and travelling all the way from South Africa (my parents wouldn’t let me come see you at sun city) can’t wait to be on holiday in the UK in Dec and see one of my idols.
    Thanks for the entertainment.

  354. Pj says:

    Hi my step dad claims to be David Essex cousin can you confirm this?? It would make good reading on our family tree if it’s true

  356. Thank you so much David for your signed card received yesterday it made my Birthday very special :) xxxxxx Cheryl Williams, Nuneaton

  357. Anna says:

    Good afternoon David
    Thank you for your reply. Ha ha wow …you really did go strawberry picking ..
    Bet you were busy eating those big strawberries and your mum told you off… ha ha
    I only just read your reply and sadly my brother died on Sunday so couldn’t say ahhh you were right … How on Earth he knew that I’ll never know …
    He wasn’t a fan of yours he was mostly into Santana I drove from Essex to Peterborough in my fiat convertible with the roof down playing samba pa ti in memory of him . He did like you and always complained that his wife liked you too ha ha ha

  358. Gill says:

    So pleased to hear about the Legends Tour it`ll be 2 years since we saw you last and just cant wait….seems like forever for us , also bringing some new “Paws” fans with us to the local concert who have never seen you live and are so excited – Great to see you on Tv too looking fab and great Radio interview ……! Went mad and booked 6…..sometimes you just have to travel to see the best well worth it….(and will be great to see Suzie again .) Take care love to all… extra hug for Levi xxxx And Thank You ….Rock On and On x

  359. Denise Cave says:

    What a great 6oth birthday week I’ve had. Firstly they reprinted our photograph in the all our yesterdays page of the Coventry Evening Telegraph and then I saw you on ‘This Morning’. You have inspired me to embrace my age and look forward to my NHS pension this month. Thank you my friend xx

  360. Tracey shearing says:

    Thank you for doing all those interviews David, lovely to see you looking so well, you sounded like you were enjoying them too. Much appreciated.
    Best Wishes Trace.xx

  361. Lesley Edgar says:

    A new legends tour (2019) and NO Scottish dates again!

    What is wrong with Scotland?

    Do you know the additional cost of going to Newcastle or further south are
    prohibitive to many!

  362. Katie Gray says:


    My mum has been a fan of David for over 40 years, and i am also ! Her 60th birthday is coming up and i wondered if it would be possible to arrange a birthday card to be sent and signed from David ?

    Thanks in advance !

  363. Julie Harding says:

    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

  364. Julie Harding says:

    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

  365. Denise Cave says:

    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!

  366. 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 ????????????

  367. 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



  368. Angela Smith says:

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

  369. 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

  370. Michael Weston says:

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

  371. Brian Shearing says:

    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!

  372. Jackie says:

    Thank you so much for finding the time to reply.. You will never believe the happiness you have brought me and pat the arguing who had the best posters going to see you for the first time Trust me whatever you was doing we was there that was me and her shouting “i don’t think so” yep you thought it was the crouds no we have very big mouths lol..

    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

    • 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.

  379. 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,


    • 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 !!!!

  381. 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.

  382. 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.

  383. Gill says:

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

  384. 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.

  387. 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 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
