Let’s get the most important thing right out of the way, at last he’s back on tour.
David Cassidy has done it all, from the small screen of television to sell out world
wide tours, from the dizzy heights of Broadway to full scale thetre. Thanks to his upbringing into a family which wasn’t afraid to tread the boards, sing a song or even perform a tap routine, Cassidy’s fate was written from an early age already performing at his local school with two friends under the name of Cassidy UR3. He soon became known for his soft pink lips and smooth shaven skin as an entertainer in larger play houses in and around his hometown although it wasn’t until by a twist of fate he ended up alongside Shirley Jones on the now legendary Partridge Family series. It was this that hurled Cassidy into the limelight and a full time career within the world of entertainment.
As soon as the show launched in the Summer of 1970 Cassidy, along with the show received a magnitude of awards and nominations, finally winning the Golden Apple Award. A cultish following exploded and it was said at the time Cassidy was more popular than even the Beatles. At the age of 21 Cassidy was the highest paid entertainer in the world filling Stadia to the rafters with hits such as “Breaking Up is Hard to Do” and “Rock Me Baby”.
His first TV break came with the screenshow “A Chance to Live” which received accolade throughout the industry and led him to Broadway where he literally knocked the socks off critics with his performance in “Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat”. Playing on all the great stages including London’s West End and alongside the greats such as Olivier it was guaranteed there was never an empty seat in the house.
In 1996 David, in his own words “hauled ass” back to America and opened his show “EFX” in Vegas at the MGM Grand which to this day is lauded as Vegas’ biggest and best performance ever picking up a host of awards. Cassidy’s humble beginnings with UR3 to the glitz of Vegas and now with a welcome tour on the way, the legendary soft pink lips are once again singing his greatest hits and also with the promise of a new CD out this Winter.
Keep on rocking David, and I hope to see you soon!
