Singer Joe Longthorne has postponed his 2014 tour due to illness.

He was scheduled to appear at York’s Grand Opera House this year.

But the new date for his York show is Friday 6 February 2015, when this much loved performer will return.

This talented artist began his career over three decades ago with appearances on Junior Showtime, followed by a 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.

Now, Joe is looking forward to new challenges, new songs to sing and new audiences to thrill.

Tickets are priced at £19.50 and £22.50 and are available in person from the theatre box office, or call ATG box office on 0844 871 3024, to book online go to
