This legendary singer and actor has been delighting legions of fans for more than 40 years - but the time has come to put down the mic. Sadly, he's hanging his hat up for good after 2016, but treats his devoted fan base to a special farewell tour before a much deserved retirement from show business.
A teen pin-up in his heyday, the veteran rocker has enjoyed a richly varied career. He released a string timeless classics such as 'Rock On' in the 1970s and it's safe to say he's more than deserving of his status as a national treasure.

David Essex - Join Him on His Farewell Tour in 2016
Now a veteran recording artist as well as an accomplished screen and stage actor, this East End boy has enjoyed mammoth success since flitting from a football career to turn his hand to music in the early 1960s. By the '70s, he was one of the most popular musicians in the UK, hitting the number one spot with songs such as 'Hold Me Close' and 'Gonna Make Me a Star'. He also starred in many box office smash films including Stardust (1974) and The Big Bus (1976).
However, with his adoring teenage fan base reaching adulthood, Essex's mainstream fame waned in the 1980s and 1990s, when he instead focused his attention on theatre roles and charity worked. After a brief but glittering stint as part of the popular Moon clan on EastEnders, the evergreen entertainer took to the stage once more to revive his timeless hits in the 2000s. In 2016, he announced that he'd be retiring from the limelight for good, and has promised to bow out in style with a bittersweet farewell tour.
