Internationally renowned singer, composer and actor David Essex OBE has announced his first major tour in over four years. The 18 date UK tour taking place in October 2020 will see him call in at the Brighton Centre on Saturday 17th October 2020, where he will perform many much loved hits spanning over his entire repertoire.
David first shot to fame when he went to an audition for the London production of the musical ‘Godspell’ and was chosen by enthusiastic US producers for the role of Jesus. He received major awards and some ecstatic reviews which saw him lead a cast at the Roundhouse and then at the West End for two years.
Since then David Essex has enjoyed a remarkable career that has combined concerts, records, theatre, composing, films and television with striking success. He has written, recorded and produced albums that have sold millions of copies worldwide. He’s also had twenty-three Top 30 singles in Britain alone. These include the Grammy© nominated ‘Rock On’ which not only topped the charts in Britain and the USA, but sold over one million copies. Subsequent singles followed such as ‘Lamplight’, ‘Hold Me Close’ and ‘Gonna Make You A Star’ which made David a household name. Mayhem ensued throughout the UK, with crowds for his concerts resembling Beatlemania and traffic stopping whenever he appeared.
David has continued to this day to produce and write albums including 2013’s ‘Reflections’ and has contributed to stage and screen with the likes of ’Silver Dream Machine’ taken from ‘Silver Dream Racer’, in which he starred.
Acting credits also include ‘That’ll Be The Day’, its sequel ‘Stardust’, ‘Traveller’, ‘The Guvnors’, ‘Black Prince’ and more recently BBC TV’s ‘EastEnders’ as the head of the Moon family. Theatre credits include outstanding performances in ‘Evita’, ‘Boogie Nights 2’, ‘ELF!’, ‘Footloose’, ‘Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects Of Love’, plus his own musicals ‘Mutiny!’ and ‘All The Fun Of The Fair’.
David has also written a bestselling poetry book ‘Travelling Tinker Man & Other Rhymes’ plus two successful autobiographies ‘A Charmed Life’ and ‘Over The Moon’, the latter a Number 1 Sunday Times Bestseller.
David Essex is the only artiste in the world to have achieved success in all areas of entertainment and continues to break boundaries with his unique talent. On the tour Essex said: “I’ve had so many requests to tour again, so I’ve decided to do one more tour. I’m looking forward to touring the UK again in October 2020, it should be fun””
