Joe Longthorne

Venue: Southport Theatre

Date: 7th June

Joe began his career as a singer and impersonator over 30 years ago with appearances on Junior Showtime, followed by a grounding on the tough Northern club circuit. In the last three decades, Joe has received several awards including the finalist on London Weekend Television's Search for a Star, the Variety Club of Britain award as Most Promising Artiste of the Year. He has earned gold and platinum discs for his albums, enjoyed sell-out concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, and toured Australia several times. Joe's repertoire of voices is endless and includes hundreds of the world's top singers; however, he is perhaps most known for his impersonation of Shirley Bassey who has commented, 'Joe can do me better than I can do myself.' This time, he will bring new songs to impress the audience in Southport.
