Leicester De Montfort Hall on November 10 2016
I really enjoyed the show, always loved David and he never lets the fans down. I can't wait to see him in Birmingham in October 2017. Me and my sister will be getting tickets very soon, we just cant wait also to see Suzi Quatro and the Osmonds, it's going to be a great night.
Excellent evening and crowd sang with him throughout the performance, fabulous atmosphere at Leicester De Montfort Hall. First time I have ever heard him sing Winters Tale and worth the wait. the only disappointment is that I still can't believe he is retiring but will remember the night forever.
Poor sound and singing. Very sad to see, time to retire. My memories of good singer are shattered. Such a shame. Waste of money left half way through. I dont expect him to be same as when younger but do expect to watch a good performance with some movement and charisma.
