Joe Brown Billingham Forum Theatre April 19th 2009
Will raised the idea of seeing Joe Brown some time ago. We missed him last time he came to the region; so decided we would catch up with him this time at Billingham Forum Theatre. We arrive a little late (around 7.40) and Joe is already on stage. The set is a mixture of old favourites including Joe’s own hits, old rock and roll songs and standards. Highlights are Picture of You, See You in My Dreams, Black Betty, and Hava Nagila. Joe is accompanied by a great band including his son Pete. The show is very good, not surprising I suppose when you consider how long Joe has been in the business. Nice to go to a concert where we are the youngest there ; rather than the oldest!
