                      Fantastic to see a new venture taking off in Leeds where the comedy scene has been a little rocky after certain places choosing to close their doors. Hopefully this can become a mainstay and keep West Yorkshire laughing for years to come. Great acts. Great venue. Couldnĺt ask for more.

                      Review of legends live Uk Tour april 2019

                      Overall rating: 4

                      Well Showaddywaddy were excellent as was David Essex. But sadly Les McKeown looked as if he could not be bothered,chewed gum all the way through - a very poor performance from him and his rollers, looked more like they were out for a pint and a game of darts than performing - worst band I have ever seen huge disappointment and such a shame as I was really looking forward to having a sing along. Suzie Q was also a huge let down - really harsh unpleasant sound just grated on you - even old favourites sounded bad - overplayed by the musicians and no harmonies left most tracks indistinguishable - just a bad noise and Left after just 5 tracks from her. Both very disappointing!!.
                      On the plus side the other two acts were excellent. Love love loved Showaddywaddy - great sound, fantastic entertainers and polished performance - real feelgood band. Oh and David Essex - what class!! A gentleman and a joy to behold and listen to - great voice - superstar! loved him too!!
