David Essex misses All the Fun of the Fair performance

Singer David Essex had to pull out of a performance at the Theatre Royal Bath last night after developing a viral infection. It is believed this is only the first or second time he has missed a performance or gig in his 40-year career. Essex saw a doctor and was advised to rest his voice.

His lead part of Levi Lee in All the Fun of the Fair was performed by understudy David Burrows. The production’s general manager said that he Essex had been struggling to give of his best and did not want to let fans down. “He’s a professional and he always wants to give 110% and his voice was not allowing him to sing to his full potential. He’s always very mindful that he doesn’t want to disappoint fans.

The stint in Bath ends today with matinee and evening performances and hopefully Essex will be well enough to perform at least one of the shows. The tour opens at Cardiff’s New Theatre on Monday.

Update Sunday 27th November:  David managed to perform at the evening show of All The Fun of the Fair last night so hopefully is now on the road to recovery.
