Just a few words on Joe's recent concerts around the country at York, East Kilbride, Isle of Sheppey and London's Leicester Square Theatre in the heart of the West End.
Joe's really enjoyed being back on the road and travelling around the UK seeing everyone each night at the venues. Performances to an amazing level 'Vintage Joe' as many of you have commented. 90 minutes up to a few minutes under 2 hours at Leicester Square Theatre.
Joe was delighted to catch up with his good friends Vincent Hayes MBE and Andrew Robley from the Brick Lane Music Hall on Sunday at Leicester Square Theatre.
