DAVID CASSIDY A huge teen idol across the world following the massive TV show ‘The Partridge Family’, subsequent chart hits throughout the following decades and sell-out tours – U.S. star David Cassidy was one of the pop pin ups of the 70’s. His top ten hits included ‘Could It Be Forever’/’Cherish’ (No 2), ‘If I Could Be Heard’ (No.9), The Last Kiss (No. 6) plus the No 1’s ‘How Can I Be Sure’ and ‘Daydreamer’/’The Puppy Song’. David has won multiple Grammy nominations and starred in Joseph & His Technicoloured Dream Coat both on Broadway and in London’s West End. www.davidcassidy.com DAVID ESSEX From hit records to hit musicals David Essex OBE has had one of the most enduring careers in music - lasting over 30 years to date. David has starred in the musicals Godspell, Evita and Mutiny which he also wrote.
