Please enjoy your time spent here sharing stories, comments and links with B.J. Thomas fans from all over the world !
glen campbell would be a better duo, no doubt, but who could afford that, the promoter think bj thomas headlining, bobby goldsboro had 4 #1 hits, and the theatre only holds 1,200 people, so i heard 65 dollars for front 400 seats, 55 floor balance at 55 dollars and 45 front balcony of only 233 seats at 45 dollars if it is confirmed, been to theatre "great place", free parking and it is a cathedral theatre setting, can't wait, i hear a saturday, july 26th. is the time / date:, we;ll see and i will post when an ad hits the paper.
Where would this concert be held?
I think Gary Puckett is the better match. Saw him and B.J. together at the State Theater in Easton Pa.
HOW MUCH WERE TICKETS, SELL WELL, BUT PUCKETT IS BOOKED. i am the one looking ro do this, WHOELSE BESIDES GOLDSBORO, PUCKETTT NOT OPEN, ASK FAN CLUB HEAD.
SCOTTISH RITE CATHEDRAL, READING, PA. WHAT WE DO, WWW.JELK4.COM, JIMMYJ LINK, OR VENUES
tickets were $35 and it was a full house. I don't think there was any seats open. He also travels with Billy Joe Royal a lot. They will be at Hershey Park very soon.
He is also going to be at the Sellersville Theater in June. Already have tickets for that.
yes, we just noticed and will probably have to pass on persuing july 26 unless we can still compete with a real "STRONG" opener, doubt it though, he played here twice before, "GREAT" act, but sellersville is just down the road.
thats to bad, I think he has a lot of fans in pa. I know I would go if he was in Reading even though I am going to Hershey and Sellersville. He is with Dan May in Sellersville I don't even know who that is.
1,200 seats; need a hot opener to pull them in, i know and work with jose' feliciano, but mix may not work, although jose' does not draw latin music lovers.
yes I know what you mean keep thinking it might work
e-mail some friends "please", a saturday is great in reading, pa, puckett booked, goldsboro, doesn't tour much, he was the original thought, with "the rascals", but that may be too many acts and conflict with bj thomas finishing.
please come up with a as called co-bill, someone suggested "glen campbell", too big for this.
HOW ABOUT JAY and THE AMERICANS, THERE ARE TWO, "JAY BLACK" the voice of THE AMERICANS, and JAY and THE AMERICANS - A NEW FRONT MAN, or I should the third one, but JAY BLACK would want to finish the show, no can do, so JAY and THE AMERICANS.
Jay Black would be great, but B.J. has to be the star no doubt about that. Did you ever hear Kenny Vance he is doo *** though I don't know if it would fit.
HOW ABOUT A CO-BILL WITH RAY STEVENS, THERE IS A "BIG" PROBLEM WHO WOULD FINISH, BUT A GOOD TICKET PRICE WOULD BE WARRENTED, TOUGH BUSINESS TO MAKE IT.
that might work. see what you can do
BJ could easily sell out a 1200 seat venue. Shows with Billy Joe always strong (everyone loves their duets). BJ has also been booked on shows with Juice Newton as opener.
LOVE BJ THOMAS, BEEN DOING SHOWS 38 YEARS, HE IS 40 MILES DOWN THE ROAD IN SELLERSVILLE, PA A MONTH PRIOR TO MY POTENTIAL, LOOKING FOR AN ACT DATE, 26TH. DATE AT THE THEATRE I DO SHOWS IN, SO HE WILL NEED A STRONG OPENER, I AM WWW.JELK4.COM, JIMMYJ or VENUES.
WE'LL SEE, WANTED "PUCKETT", BUT HE'S IN VEGAS AS HE DOES WELL FOR ME IN READING, PA.
THONKS FOR THE "FEEDBACK", NOBODY SEEMS TO THINK "GOLDSBORO" WOULD DO IT, HE HAS NEVER BEEN HERE, AND RARELY PLAYS.
I think Mac Davis is pretty washed up. I told you to look into Kenny Vance and the Planotones. B.J. is going to be in East Rutherford N.J. with a bunch of doo *** singers in June. They are at the State theater a lot.
Bobby Goldsboro still does a few concerts a year, and he is incredible. Hit after hit, he sounds great. Tells great, funny stories between songs. Signs autographs for the crowds after the show. I highly recommend seeing him.
He plays some casinos and smaller theaters, normally to full and adoring audiences. Was supposed to play Pigeon Forge, TN on August 2 but new venue apparently isn't ready to open yet. Is scheduled for Lima, Ohio in the fall, a month after BJT is there.
Generally, though, Bobby Goldsboro doesn't "open" for other singers. Also, he is a celebrated painter now and is opening an art gallery show on July 25th in Florida. But, he is a tremendous talent and even has a friendship with BJ from their mid-1960's bus tours, so it is definitely worth asking about. Contact Goldsboro through his bookings page on his official website.
