Leigh Orpheus Concert 30 January 2011

Lee returned to his hometown and to the Southend Cliffs Pavilion, the scene of his first solo concert in May 2010, to join the Leigh Orpheus Male Voice Choir as the special guest at their Celebrity Concert on Sunday 30 January 2011.

As you will from the programme scans below, he performed two sets of his own music, accompanied by a pared down version of his usual band, as well as opening the second half of the show with 'Any Dream Will Do' with the West Leigh Junior School choir and singing Anthem backed by the full choir.

He was very relaxed, clearly happy to be back on his 'home stage' and in superb form vocally.

My personal highlights were Collide, which I've never heard Lee sing better, and Anthem, always a personal favourite but taken to a different level with Lee's glorious voice soaring over the swell of the ninety-five strong Leigh Orpheus.

I've included Lee's full set list on a separate page, along with a few bonus items you might enjoy! Meanwhile, as promised, the programme (front cover above right):

And a few photographs from the second half:
