Broadcasting legend Danny Baker brings his farewell tour, Good Time Charlie’s Back, to the Ipswich Regent next spring.

It follows the success of his critically acclaimed Cradle To The Stage show earlier this year,

He said: “I was asked to reconsider my initial statement that I would never undertake such a venture again. The applause of the public can be a seductive narcotic and weaker souls than I would be tempted to repeat the thrills harvested during that ‘uproarious whirligig of joy’ simply to bolster their already outsized egos.

“After much reflection, I have decided I cannot allow such rampant narcissism to cloud my judgment. I said one farewell’ tour and I meant one farewell tour. There will be no more.

“These shows will be startling, high kicking, fresh, eruptive and often under three hours long. On this, once again, you have my word. To help me mark the festivities I will joined on some nights by both Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan – two of the nicest dogs I have ever owned.”

Danny has worked in print, TV and radio for more than 30 years. His recent bestselling autobiographies were adapted into the hit BBC series Cradle to Grave. He can still be heard Saturdays mornings hosting his multi-award winning BBC Radio 5 Live show.

See him at the Regent on May 10 and Colchester’s Charter Hall on June 1.
