An Audience with Junior Turner
Featuring guest artist Jess Wood

At the Tynemouth Priory Theatre

8th December 2012

It didn’t take long, from the time the doors opened, for the Tynemouth Priory Theatre to become packed, almost to capacity, with people buzzing with excitement and chatter about the show they had come to see.

Jess Wood live on stage in An Audience with Junior Turner Review by Martin Deltrice The show opened, as planned, with Jess Wood who featured on Junior’s single ‘Loveblind’ from mid 2012 and, although there were a few minor problems with the sound, Jess carried on and kept it all together beautifully with some adlib banter until the sound crew had sorted the problem. Jess then continued to woo the crowd with her set list, including ‘Just The Way You Are’, ‘Mercy’, ‘Where The Boys Are’ and ‘She Will Be Loved’, all performed to perfection and showing just how versatile her voice really is. I am looking forward to hearing more from her in the future

After a brief interlude the main event began.

Compere, Les Routledge, opened the second half of the show with a brief run down of some of the life events that have tested and tried Junior Turner, making him into what he is today, before welcoming him on stage to perform.

As Junior started his performance you could feel his incredible stage presence fill the room as the audience sprang to life! His voice was clear and strong as he worked his way through some brilliant songs from his debut album ‘Under Scrutiny’.

One song that stood out was ‘Hurt’ which Junior is set to release as his new single on the 15th December 2012. It features the guitarist Neil Taylor who has had a long term affiliation with Robbie Williams and played on countless of his tracks.
Later on in the show Junior welcomed Jess Wood back on stage for their performance of ‘Loveblind’ and, after listening to the single many times while playing it on the radio, I have got say that it was executed to perfection.

Closing the show with a little Christmas festivity and a cover of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas
Time’ ensured that the audience were well and truly out of their seats to both dance and applaud the performance that I can only describe as flawless.

All in all a great night out and, if you missed that one may I suggest you book early for the next.
