We saw Joe's show just last Friday in Glasgow, what a show he put on. he was out of this world, his voice was tremendous, still a star! We look forward to seeing him again in the near future and wish him all the best.

Went to see Joe in Blackpool last week (29-08-2008) the doorman said his act finished at 10.15 it ended at 9.45. He still can perform but he did not look well and I was concerned for him. Enjoyed him but concerned.

Joe Longthorne- what a man! There is no finer singer around than Joe, he stamps his name firmly on every song he sings.This year so far I have seen Joe eight times on tour,and no - i'm not mad,sad or stupid! For the price of a ticket you get an evening watching a true genius at work! This man is truely a world class entertainer and would easily stand alongside Sinatra,Bennett, Davis etc on the same stage.Every show I've seen has been amazing. Joe has been on top form every time, being on stage for at least an hour and a half on each occasion once more than 2 hours, and I've sat and listened to the most amazing repertoire of songs,impressions and piano playing and it's been a different show every time,no set routine for Mr Longthorne as we know! The most important thing for me is that Joe is always LIVE, and he has a great band/orchestra behind him who are all excellent musicians. Personally,it has given me deep great joy to see that Joe has looked much better and stronger on stage this year to last,it is a testament to his great courage and determination after fighting back from his bone marrow transplant three years ago.
I would like to suggest that anyone new to Joe who wants to hear more of what he is singing now should get a copy of his new CD "You and Me",19 tracks all of them true gems,from his great version of "September in the Rain", through "Smile" and "Shadow of Your Smile", awesome versions of the Sinatra songs "Let Me Try Again" and "Cycles" and a very soulful version of "You'll Never Find Another Love", something for everyone.

I heard Joe live for the first time on Friday 27th February, 2009 in The Dalkeith Miners Club.
He was absolutely sensational.
Wishing you all the best Joe
