RIP Sam Shepard

The news broke earlier today that actor and playwright Sam Shepard has passed away at the age of 72.

Even though he had a small role in August: Osage County but I totally loved him in that and have enjoyed the other performances of his I have seen as well.

Thoughts go out to his family and friends, Rest In Peace.

Joe McElderry: Saturday Night at the Movies Tour (2017) Newcastle Review


Date: Sunday 30th July 2017
Venue: Theatre Royal, Newcastle

Local lad Joe McElderry also from South Shields has come along way since being crowned The X Factor winner back in 2009, which was the last time I watched the show to be completely honest. The whole town was behind him and it’s amazing to have followed his career since then. His transition to Opera star as well, really showing off his incredible vocals. I have bought each album and enjoyed listening to his fantastic voice. It has also been fantastic to witness his change over to musical theatre and leading as Joseph.

This was the first time I have had the honour of seeing him in concert at the amazing Theatre Royal in Newcastle, which was a complete sell out I want to add. The tour falls into his new album released earlier this month ‘Saturday Night at the Movies’ so a chance to hear him sing all of the songs live.

He has brought some friends along for the show as well though in Keith Jack and Ben James-Ellis who both found fame on Joseph show Any Dream Will Do and have since become seasoned performers. They were also joined by Sam Callaghan a former X Factor contestant who stepped in for the tour for Lloyd Daniels due to illness.
