(Non DSB) Joe wows the Palladium

  

(Non DSB) Thanks to Sheila and Donald, here’s a mini report on Joe Longthorne’s stunning show at the London Palladium Sunday 1st June.

 *

“NOT ONLY WAS IT GREAT TO SEE ONE OF OUR NATIONAL TREASURES  PERFORMING, AS ONLY HE CAN, BUT TO BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY SIT IN THE ROYAL BOX WAS THE ICING ON THE CAKE! 
*
JOE IS TRULY WHAT ENTERTAINMENT IS ALL ABOUT … SUPERB VOICE, COMEDY AND GREAT TRIBUTES TO BASSEY/GARLAND/PRESLEY ETC; AND ALL THIS FROM A MAN  WHO IS CONTINUALLY FIGHTING AGAINST ALL THAT NATURE THROWS AT HIM – WATCH AND ENJOY WHILST YOU CAN… AND BY THE WAY, HE IS A GREAT BASSEY FAN TOO!
*
I REMEMBER WHEN WE WENT TO THE TV STUDIOS TO SEE THE FIRST EVENING WITH SHIRLEY BASSEY – HE WAS THERE TOO – NOT AMONG THE FRONT ROW OF THE SCRIPTED STARS BUT ON HIS OWN – BUT HE HAD TO MAKE HIS VOICE HEARD TO CONGRATULATE HER AT GREAT LENGTH SO MUCH SO THAT SHE HAD TO SHUT HIM UP!!.
* 
UNFORTUNATELY, IT DID NOT MAKE THE FINAL TELEVISED SHOW.   THERE ARE VERY FEW ARTISTS WHO CAN MAKE YOU FEEL AND CARE –  HE AND DSB ARE TWO OF THE VERY BEST.”
*
Joe should be up there in the world’s A-list of stars, doing Vegas.
