Show Information


Internationally renowned singer, composer and actor David Essex OBE returns to Southampton with his first major tour in over four years, performing much loved hits spanning 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 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, it should be fun."
