FOOTBALL radio duo Alan Brazil and Ray Parlour are coming to Southend this Spring.

The Talksport presenters have announced plans to tour the country following the successful launch of their live show in Ipswich.

Alan and Ray will be heading to the Cliffs Pavilion on April 29 as part of their short tour of England.

Both will be telling tales from the dressing room, from the studio, from their playing days, travels on international duty, and of course Cheltenham.

Alan was a UEFA Cup winner with Ipswich Town under Sir Bobby Robson, played in the World Cup for Scotland under the late Jock Stein and also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Ray, also known as the ‘Romford Pele’, holds the all-time appearance record for Arsenal in the Premier League and won the league on a number of occasions.

Ahead of the launch of the tour, Alan said: “We ran our first big show in Ipswich just before the pandemic and had a great night.

“It was a sell out and everyone had a great time.

“Now we're back on the road and live on stage again.

“It's a really entertaining couple of hours going through all the funny things that have happened to both of us throughout both our playing careers and on our radio show.

“And I'll be telling you what really happened with Bob Monkhouse. It will be a cracking evening.”

The live show will be Talksport presenter, Shebahn Aherne.
