JASON Donovan at Ipswich Regent, Tuesday December 2nd.

POP superstar Jason Donovan left a trail of 'too many broken hearts' at the Ipswich Regent as he sang and danced his way through 20 years of hits.

Performing a medley of show stopping songs Jason had every single audience member on their feet.

The tour is entitled 'Let It Be Me' and that was most definitely the general consensus of the predominately female audience.

Opening the show with a selection of numbers from his new album, also called 'Let It Be Me', Jason soon had everyone under his spell and proved without a shadow of a doubt that he is still at the top of his game.

While demonstrating a surprising amount of dry wit and comedy timing, Donovan even plucked a lucky audience member (Jo from Woodbridge) out of the crowd and proceeded to serenade her, making the crowd go wild.

Not only did Jason sing, but he also played the guitar throughout several of the songs, including an unforgettable performance of 'Sealed With A Kiss'.

The most emotive performance of the night came after Jason spoke movingly of his children, and the pride he feels in watching them grow up. 'Halfway Home' is a self-penned song, full of emotion and the whole audience listened with rapt attention.

The evening even had a local flavour as Stagecoach, the Ipswich based performing arts school, provided the vocal choir accompaniment for the classic Joseph song, 'Any Dream Will Do'.

Jason Donovan is an all round performer, who has a sparkling personality and last night he provided a very welcome respite from the cold British winter, it was truly an entertaining and heart-warming evening.
