The Once In A Lifetime – The Final Tour is brought to you by Tony Denton Promotions.  This unique arena tour is the very last chance to see your favourite acts together all on one stage at venues across the country including the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Tuesday 24th June 2014.

This tour features US sensations The Osmonds, the iconic David Essex, as well as Showaddywaddy & Les Mckeown’s Legendary Bay City Rollers.

THE OSMONDS - for over five decades The Osmond Brothers have been entertaining sold out crowds throughout the world. This tour will see them perform many of their unforgettable hits - from classics such as "One Bad Apple", "Down By The Lazy River", “Let Me In”, The Proud One", "Goin Home and "Love Me For A Reason" to “Crazy Horses” and “Long Haired Lover From Liverpool” – the 1972 number One from Jimmy.  The Osmonds are unique in their success as a band and as solo performers.  They have recorded over 200 albums, selling over 100 million copies with 59 gold and platinum recordings. They have sold out venues worldwide, breaking box office records and received countless awards; most notably in 2003 when they were honoured by the industry, receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

DAVID ESSEX - From hit records to hit musicals David Essex OBE has had one of the most enduring careers in music - lasting over 40 years to date. His breadth of hits include two No 1’s – ‘Gonna Make U A Star’ and ‘Hold Me Close’ -other top ten hits include ‘Rock On’, ‘Lamplight’, ‘Stardust’, ‘Oh What A Circus’, ‘Brave New World’, ‘Silver Dream Machine’ and ‘A Winter’s Tale’.  He has starred in the films ‘Silver Dream Racer’, ‘Stardust’ and ‘That’ll Be The Day’ amongst others.  More recently he starred in East Enders as Eddie Moon.

SHOWADDYWADDY: have long been established as Europe's most successful ever exponents of retro-inspired rock & roll. They have had 23 Top 40 hit singles including the 10 Top 5 hits ‘Under The Moon of Love’, ‘When’, ‘You Got What It Takes’, ‘3 Steps To Heaven’, and ‘Hey Rock & Roll’.  As if the band's amazing success through 4 decades were not enough, here well into the 21st Century the demand for these legendary performers is every bit as strong, which is surely a testament to their outstanding reputation as live artists.

LES MCKEOWEN’S LEGENDARY BAY CITY ROLLERS: Their music became the soundtrack for a generation of teenagers growing up in the mid 70’s. The face and voice of that soundtrack belonged to Les McKeown. The band’s singles and albums shot to the number spot all over the globe. Massive hits such as ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shang A Lang’, ‘Summer Love Sensation’, ‘I Only Want To Be With You’, ‘All Of Me Loves All Of You’ and ‘Give A Little Love’ (to name just a few) propelled the band to world-wide superstardom and their trademark Scottish tartan was to be seen everywhere across the planet.
