THE LATE MR MICHAEL BLACK

Very sad to learn that Mr Michael Black has passed away. How wonderful to have been acquainted with him through the years and performed at many of his engagements.

Deepest sympathies and condolences to Julie, all his family and loved ones.

Never will he be forgotten.

ADIEU CHARLES !

It is very sad to hear today of the passing of one of my all time favourite artists Charles Aznavour.

This man was one of the greatest exponents of 'La Chanson Francaise' for over 7 decades, with such a unique, colossal talent for songwriting and performance on the world's stage in many different languages, crossing the barriers of borders and cultures.

RIP Charles & 'merci beaucoup' for all your music.

God Bless Joe x

NEWS UPDATE & JOE'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR IS ON THE ROAD THIS WEEK !

We’re delighted to update everyone on Joe’s health and well being and his upcoming ‘50th Anniversary Tour’ right around the UK and out to Benidorm Spain on 11 November 2018.

The best news is that Joe’s feeling really great after making the most of the fantastic summer weather over the last few months, relaxing and taking gentle exercise in between working on planning the tour and his musical projects. His medical team are extremely satisfied with the way his long term treatment has gone over the last year or so. Delighted audiences at Viva Blackpool have commented on how well he’s looking now.

Joe’s slightly taken aback at the thought that it’s now 50 years since he first started singing and entertaining audiences on ITV’s ‘Junior Showtime’ and now has a renewed interest in connecting with his audiences at the concerts each night, the first dates being The Brunton Musselburgh this Thursday 30th August 2018 and then at The City Varieties Leeds on Sat 1st September 2018. Full details on the tour dates and booking details can be found on our Events tab.

The Viva Blackpool 2018 residency is now in full swing with Sunday night shows every week until Sunday 4 November 2018, plus monthly Thursday matinees in September, October and November and a Christmas show on Sun 9 December 2018. It’s a great night out at Viva with dining options before the show and a great opportunity to spend a day or two in Blackpool with the illuminations plus many other tourism features around the town. #joelongthorne #50thAnniversary #Legend #Incomparable
