On arrival at Bournemouth just after our hotel check- in , we just took a wander over to the Pavilion.
Well the timing couldn’t have worked out better as Tony exited the stage doors for a breather.
Without missing a trick , my wife and I managed a quick hello and and I got my album signed by the big man.

This was our first time seeing Tony perform live and he did not disappoint.
His vocals were pitch perfect accompanied by a superb band as they breezed through Spandau hits , Tony’s solo tracks from his new album ‘Talking To The Moon’ and a few cover versions including a moving tribute to the late Freddie Mercury with Queen’s ‘Somebody To Love’.
It was clear that Tony had the crowd hanging on his every line with classics like ‘Instinction’ and ‘Gold’ entwined with mellower moments with the beautiful ‘Skin Deep’ and the autobiographical ‘What Am I’
Waiting fans outside afterward were treated by a quick but genuine heartfelt greeting from the man himself before disappearing with a wave in his waiting 4×4.
A fantastic night of entertainment including the talent of Damien Wilson who was also greatly received.
