Apparently the promoter of the recent UK tour wants to bring Jerry back again, but is faced with the dilemma of following a "farewell tour"... :roll:

Such a quick return to the UK is not a good idea.

He can still do shows in Continental Europe and Scandinavia.

Haha yes that would be kinda weird. Though many acts have done several farewell tours.

I'm more wondering, the fact he was in such a good shape and really did his best to made those shows into a succes, was this more like "an accident", or maybe he did this because he knew this would be the last time (so maybe when they book him again, he might think, I don't have to do anything extra, there might be an other tour) or is he really in a better shape overall? Always hard to answer of course...Just don't know if I like the idea of another farewell tour, this one has been great so this will be how we remember his last visit....if next time he puts on bad shows etc...than that will really be the final tour and final impression...

He can continue the farewell tour, just not in London and Glasgow. That's why I suggested shows in Continental Europe and Scandinavia where Jerry is even more popular than in the UK.

I don't think he ever did a lacklustre show since being with Judith, so I think he just enjoys performing his (rare) shows.

I agree totally.

Incidentally I was reliably informed earlier today that Jerry wore a hearing aid for the UK concerts, and after London it was turned up (or replaced) and that's why he sang far more in tune in Glasgow.

If it was someone like Little Richard (who first "retired" in 1957, and has retired at least 3 times since) or Status Quo (retired in 1982 and still touring!) no-one would pay much attention, but Jerry has never said he's retiring until now when he (sort of) confirmed that this will probably be his last European visit. So it's more of a big deal. He would easily get away with coming back in a year or so "by popular demand" though.

Some pics posted on Facebook. Not sure if this is the right subject, I thought there was a separated thread for the birthday party but couldn't find it.
Have to say, again he looks pretty good and happy!
You can see Lori Lewis Lancaster on one of the pics as well. Seems she and Judith and Jerry are in touch now.

Which photo is she in? I don't recognise her.

I think it was more Phoebe than Jerry who didn't want her around, which I guess just goes to show how weak Jerry is to not stick up for his (step)daughter...

I'm guessing Phoebe wasn't at her dad's 80th birthday celebrations?

She's on the 3th picture.

Ray played at the party and I thought I saw Buck on some pics. Wondering why Kenny and Robert were not there. Also wondering if there were any famous guests. George Klein was there, and this guy who plays Jerry in a musical.

Thanks! I wasn't sure if it was her, as she looks younger than in the pics from a few years ago.

I always thought he was born on the 29th but it seems I was always wrong :oops:
My life will never be the same.
