TONY MORTIMER ANNOUNCES LIVE RETURN
THURSDAY, 28TH MAY at Monto @ 229
 
House of Love.  Stay Another Day.  Deep.  Alright.  Thunder.  Steam.  Let It Rain.
 
 The songs need no intro­duc­tion, East 17’s legacy remains and now the song­writer respons­ible for those unmis­tak­able classics is preparing for an up close & personal fully live show at London’s Monto @ 229 club on Thursday 28th May. 
 
In what will be an extremely intimate and exclusive gig, Tony will be playing a number of the favourite East 17 hits alongside some new solo material & a few surprises as well.  This time, he’s doing it his way…
 
“There are so many songs being re-played that had massive chart success in the early nineties.  To me, it would be a terrible shame for all those who were the teens of this era if my songs weren't part of this moment in time.  My songs were — thank God — some of the most influ­en­tial and biggest selling songs from the nineties.   They have been used on different adverts over the years and played repeatedly, espe­cially around Christmas time, almost refusing to go away, which is so humbling. 
 
I have a strong desire to perform the songs in an intimate envir­on­ment and give people the chance to hear them again in a 100% live atmo­sphere.  I have always wanted to play them in an organic way and in some cases, break the songs down to the bare skeleton acoustics.  It's very easy to hide behind a massive show with a wall of sound full of expensive, though sometimes irrel­ev­ant tricks, but that proves nothing.   As everyone in the music industry knows, to perform intim­ately in a close envir­on­ment is one of the more, if not the most, demanding ways to perform and I am relishing the challenge of getting back out there and on stage in these more personal cir­cum­stances.  Any profits that are made will be donated to Breast Cancer Research”.

Actually when we say 'semi-tragic, semi-amazing' the proper breakdown is probably more in the region of 22% tragic, 78% amazing.
