I saw Mathew in South Pacific at the Liverpool Empire on Saturday matinee 3rd March 2012 I recently expressed my pleasure at this wonderful show when I accepted an invitation to review it on Ticketmaster. I commented on his wonderful singing, paticularly This Nearly Was Mine. I also passed this on to Donald Koek and Alex Fern who I met, briefly, between performances. Unfortunately I credited this great performance to the previous lead in my review. Apologies.
