Citizen's Theatre - Terry Neason & Johnny Beattie 2012

Johnny Beattie Diamond Celebration 2012
The Citizen's Theatre Glasgow
 Sunday, May 20 - 2012

We had a brilliant cast of celebs and an amazing evening celebrating 60 years in showbiz for Scottish comic legend Johnny Beattie. The night included warm hearted video messages from Sir Alex Ferguson and an hysterical one from the 'Big Yin' Billy Connolly.
I had the great pleasure of singing Johnny's favourite Sinatra song, My Way. I decided to go with just vocal and piano. Michael Barnett played and I was joined onstage by the fabulous Musichoir - we did it our way!

Both Libby and Judy are River City actresses and Fiona has the singing voice of an angel.

After show glow - Terry Neason with highly talented Scottish Hollywood actor, Alan Cumming OBE - (Jings! Apparently he confessed to going commando in his kilt to Buckingham Palace to collect his OBE from Princess Anne...could have been a royal flush.)
Re-united after all these years. Alan was part of Victor & Barry with Forbes Masson and they were the regular comedy 'turn' on The Terry Neason Show for STV.
