Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Preview: An evening with Michael Bublé @ the Utilita Arena

Of all the singers who emerged in the post Sinatra years perhaps the most outstanding was and is Canadian singer Michael Bublé. Such is his justifiable popularity that it comes as no surprise that an extra concert has been added to his forthcoming visit to Newcastle's Utilita Arena (details). As well as the near sold out Saturday, November 30, concert, an additional show will take place the following evening, December 1.

This demand for tickets comes as no surprise as his previous visits to the venue have proved equally popular although not quite as popular as a Dublin concert where he sung to 100,000 fans!


His awards and nominations are endless and too many to list here but they include 4 Grammy wins. Of particular interest to BSH readers is the fact that his albums regularly show in the Billboard Jazz Albums chart - It's Time spent 78 consecutive weeks in the number one spot!

At the Arena Michael Bublé will have a 32 piece orchestra behind him and you can rest assured there will be a few jazz musicians in there.

This promises to be a couple of nights to remember.
Lance.
