Dr Hook singer Dennis Locorriere reels in Cromer date

The man who was the voice of Dr Hook, Dennis Locorriere, is heading to Cromer for one of the pier's spring season highlights.

The Pavilion year kicks off in style with a sell-out celebrity concert by singer and actress Barbara Dickson on February 19, followed by a mix of events from classical music boy band Blake, Annie Lennox tribute act Jayne Middleton and anecdotes from actor Neil Morrissey.

Locorriere appears on April 8 during his Alone Again tour, after some successful outings with Bill Wyman's Rhythm King's and his own band.

Although being the lead singer with Dr Hook played a major part in Dennis' career garnering over 60 gold, platinum and silver albums, it is only part of the story.

He has appeared in a major movie with Dustin Hoffman, starred at New York City's Lincoln Centre in a universally acclaimed one man play The Devil And Billy Markham and written songs that have been recorded by artists including Bob Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Olivia Newton-John.

The six month nationwide tour sees him joined by upcoming singer/songwriter Emily MaGuire. It coincides with the released of the live DVD and CD recorded at a packed Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, along with a special double CD box set of two previous solo albums with some rare and previously unreleased demo recordings and live tracks, and a book of his poetry and cartoons called Whatever's Burning Now.

Tickets for the Cromer show, at 7.30pm, are �20 from Cromer Pier box office on 01263 512495. Visit www.cromer-pier.com and www.dennislocorriere.com for more information.
