After a fabulous concert earlier this year, the legendary Joe Longthorne is to return to Scarborough Spa next Autumn for two very special live performances.

The multi-platinum selling artist will perform within the Spa Theatre on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th September 2017.

This talented artist began his career over three decades ago with appearances on Junior Showtime, followed by grounding on the tough Northern club circuit.

His big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television's Search for a Star - this lead to appearances at the London Palladium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town.

A short time later, Joe received the Variety Club of Britain award as Most Promising Artiste of the Year. Television specials in the UK and USA followed.

Joe's repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world's top singers, however, he is perhaps best known for his impersonation of Shirley Bassey who has commented, "Joe can do me better than I can do myself".

During his career, Joe has received gold and platinum discs for his albums, enjoyed sell-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, as well as touring Australia several times.

Tickets for ‘Joe Longthorne in Concert’ go on sale Friday 18 November 2016 at 9am, and will be priced at £21 per person. Tickets will be available from www.scarboroughspa.co.uk or via the Scarborough Spa Box Office (01723 821888).
