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 see from the programme - click flyer (right/above) to view - he performed two sets of his own music, accompanied by a pared down version of his usual band - musical director Duncan Waugh on keys, Richie Blake on bass and Mason Neely on drums/acoustic guitar - 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 one or two bonus items you might enjoy! And finally, a few photos from the second half - click any below to view the full Gallery.
