The man of a thousand singing voices, Joe Longthorne, comes to Lincoln’s Theatre Royal later this month.

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 led to appearances at the London Palladium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town.

A short time later, he 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.

He is at the Theatre Royal on 25th January at 7.30pm.

Tickets priced from £20 are available from the box office on 01522 519999 or at
