Matt Monro Ju­nior takes a spe­cial mu­si­cal even­ing on tour

Matt Monro was one of the most pop­u­lar singers of the 1960s. His son, Matt Monro Ju­nior, is de­ter­mined to keep alive his mem­ory and takes a very spe­cial show on tour, call­ing at three lo­cal venues.

Matt Monro was known as “The Man with the Golden Voice” and now his son is keep­ing alive his late fa­ther’s mem­ory with The Matt Monro Story.

The show is tour­ing the UK this au­tumn and stops off at the Ma­rina The­atre, Low­est­oft, on Oc­to­ber 6, the Ip­swich Corn Ex­change on Oc­to­ber 9 and the Princess The­atre, Hun­stan­ton, on Oc­to­ber 20.

Matt Monro was born in Shored­itch, Lon­don and died, aged 54 af­ter a string of huge hits. But his legacy lives on in this unique bi­o­graph­i­cal show per­formed by Matt Ju­nior.

When Ju­nior was 13, he was in­vited by his fa­ther to join him on stage. From that mo­ment on he knew he wanted to be a singer and re­peat that un­for­get­table 1977 night.

Un­for­tu­nately the pair never got a chance to do so as in Fe­bru­ary 1985, Matt died.

Matt Ju­nior signed with EMI in 1995 and in 2005 toured with a show called ‘The Leg­end Lives On’ which saw Matt work with his dad’s mu­si­cal di­rec­tor, Colin Keyes.

The cur­rent show makes for a unique even­ing of mu­sic, warmth and love, and in­cludes many of Matt Monro’s most recog­nis­able hits such as Heart­break­ers, Por­trait of My Love, My Kind of Girl, Walk Away and Yes­ter­day.

“I’ve al­ways said if I had half of my dad’s tal­ent I would still be a very gifted man. I’ve come a long way since I first started in the busi­ness and feel like I have achieved my dream of be­com­ing an artist in my own right,” says Matt Ju­nior.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been this ex­cited about a tour. It’s go­ing to be in­cred­i­ble. I love meet­ing the fans af­ter the show and I am al­ways knocked out at the love they still have for my fa­ther.

“I al­ways get very emo­tional,” adds Matt Ju­nior.
