FAMED for an endless repertoire of the voices of the world’s top singers, Joe Longthorne is heading to North Wales later this summer.

A special greatest hits performance is promised as the star of TV and stage boasts more than 50 years in the music business.

Joe’s commanding voice has seen a succession of gold and platinum albums that have sold in the region of 10 million records.

And he will be appearing at Venue Cymru, in Llandudno, on Saturday, August 10 (7.30pm).

Show promoter David Halford, of Artistes International Management, promises a rollercoaster ride of songs and impressions as Joe performs with his own talented live band.

“From Tom Jones to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr, Joe’s impressions are flawless,” said David.

Support will come from George King, a regular face on TV during the 1980s, appearing on hit shows such as The Comedians, Live at Her Majesty's and New Faces.

Joe’s own incredible career in showbiz began with appearances on TV’s Junior Showtime.

His big break came in 1981 when he was a finalist on London Weekend Television's iconic Search for a Star.

This led to appearances at the London Palladium with Bob Hope and The Talk of the Town.

A short time later, Joe received the Variety Club of Britain award as the most promising artiste of the year.

Television specials in the UK and USA followed.

“Million-selling albums,” said David, “sell-out concerts around the world – including the Royal Albert Hall – make Joe’s the hottest ticket in town."
