This was my first visit to see Lee in quite a while although I play his CD's in my car regularly. Lichfield is within an hours drive of where I live and my daughter kindly agreed to take me there.
She was also with me on one of the early London "Joseph" visits. We had an enjoyable day exploring Lichfield and found interesting places for coffee and our evening meal before making our way to the centrally situated Garrick Theatre. There was the usual excited chatter while we waited for Lee's entrance. I am not sure that I was entirely comfortable with the format of the show but did think that it showcased Lee's voice and I also learned some new things about him. His voice seemed stronger and more confident than when I saw him last which was some time ago. I like the way he acts through every song and I have always loved the timbre of his voice. Highlights for me were "Let her down easy" and "Make you feel my Love" Both songs are covers but he made them his own and sang them with great emotion. Stephen Rahman Hughes made a guest appearance and sang "Both Sides Now" A song I will always associate with Joni Mitchell's version in "Love Actually" The show ended as usual with all the audience enthusiastically joining in with "Any Dream Will Do" For the lady sitting next to me it was her first visit to hear Lee sing live and she obviously enjoyed it. As for me I will continue to enjoy following Lee's career and take pleasure from listening to his singing.
