50th Anniversary Farewell Tour
The Sage, Gateshead
The sense of looking back on a career spanning half a century was enhanced by numerous photographs and video clips being displayed on a large backdrop screen and by various anecdotes from Elaine herself.
The show started promptly at 7.30 p.m., without support, and was in two parts (each one lasting approximately an hour). We were treated to fabulous renditions of a host of old favourites, such as Memory and I Know Him So Well.
The Sage was packed to the rafters for this very special occasion. Here are a few photos from a memorable evening.
