Have your say

Show business wizard Des O’Connor will be on stage at Buxton Opera House next week - and you could win tickets to see him.

Sharing stories and song from his long and extensive career, Des’ live shows are legendary, with even the man himself admitting that “you haven’t seen me, if you haven’t seen me live.”

During his live show the audience can expect to hear backstage anecdotes brought vividly to life, together with fascinating show-reel clips of his iconic TV moments. And he has many ‘magic moments’ to share; his Tonight show ran for a staggering 27 years and during that time he interviewed everybody from royalty to Prime Ministers, to Pavarotti and Mr Bean. He is one of only a handful of British entertainers to be acclaimed internationally on stage and television. His American series was shown in over 40 countries and seen by 200 million people worldwide.

On stage he has appeared at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, The Sydney Opera House, The O’Keefe Centre, Toronto and in over 1200 solo performances at the London Palladium.

His award-winning ITV1 daily celebrity talk show Today With Des & Mel with co-host Melanie Sykes proved such a hit with viewers that the show more than doubled its audience. In 2007 Des took over the helm of the quiz Countdown for Channel 4 Television for two years. His interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories for ITV was the highest-rated of the series in 2011.

Des is at the Opera House on March 24, at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £28. Call 01298 72190 or visit
