NEWS UPDATE

It has come to Joe & his management's attention that for many years now there have been a number of tribute artistes around the world especially in England,Spain and Australia performing special tributes to Joe & his wonderful career.

Joe finds this a great compliment & feels very humbled that there are so many artists who take the time to put these shows on all round the globe & wishes each and every one of them all the luck in the world.

We must however point out that Mr Longthorne , his management & the Friendship Club do not promote or endorse any individual artist and furthermore there are never any official 'Stand Ins' for Mr Longthorne when shows unfortunately have to be postponed.

We hope we have made this clear & once again wish everyone the best of luck in keeping Joe Longthorne MBE in the public eye all over the world.
