Performing alongside The Jerseys will be Viva’s outrageous host and entertainment director Leye D Johns, as well as the cast of the newly reimagined Viva Vegas Live and resident magician Michael Jordan. Tickets are on sale now priced from £17.50. For more information or to book tickets visit www.vivablackpool.com or call 01253 297 297. Leye D Johns, Entertainment Director at Viva Blackpool, said: “Obviously we know some people will be disappointed that Joe isn’t able to start the season as planned but his health, of course, is the priority. “As Joe has said himself ‘the show must go on’ and with that in mind our fabulous boys, The Jerseys, will be headlining Viva Variety to keep everyone entertained while Joe recuperates. “I’m sure everyone will join us in wishing Joe a speedy recovery and we hope to see lots of smiling faces enjoying the Viva Variety show here over the coming months.” Kicking off the action on the night will be the hugely talented Michael Jordan from High Jinx wowing audiences with magic and illusion, plus members of the cast of Viva Vegas Live who will get the party started. After the interval resident performers The Jerseys will take to the stage performing tracks from their hugely successful show ‘Oh What A Nite!’, all backed by the stunning Viva showgirls to complete a night of first class entertainment. Further announcements regarding the return of Joe Longthorne to the cast of Viva Variety will be made later in the season. Tickets are on sale now priced from £17.50.
