THE talented son of a legendary singer will capture his father’s talent in a fitting tribute show.

Matt Monro Jr was only 13 years old when he was invited by his father to join him on stage for a duet.

From that moment on, he knew he wanted to be a singer and to repeat that unforgettable night in 1977.

Matt Monro Snr rose to fame for his easy baritone style, and was eventually known as The Man with the Golden Voice.

He served in the British Army in Hong Kong, where his talents were first noticed.

Monro became one of the most popular entertainers on the international music scene during the Sixties and Seventies. He filled cabarets, nightclubs, music halls, and stadiums in Australia, Japan, the Philippines and Hong Kong.

In February 1985, Matt Monro Snr died at the age of 54, leaving his son’s dream of sharing the stage with his father once again shattered.

A year after his father’s death, Monro Jnr performed a tribute show at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London, to more than 2,000 people.

His latest show will have an acoustic feel, visiting his father’s most memorable songs mixed together with countless stories.

Monro Jnr will perform at the West Cliff Theatre, Tower Road, Clacton, on October 19.

Tickets, priced £23.50, are available from the theatre box office on 01255 433344.
