Important message from John - new CD
Thanks so much for your magnificent support, we smashed our first target in no time at all and we're well on our way to making this music happen.
This campaign is far from over though and this first target is only part of the money needed to fund the album. We still need to carry on to 200%, 300% and beyond our first target, and every successive target we reach will go towards making a fantastic new album for you.
So if you haven't pledged yet, don't worry, you still can. There's loads more exciting exclusives to come, especially for all you fans in the US, and loads of updates to come from me, so make sure you keep an eye on the campaign!

A request from John
Many of you have given John gifts over the years, and although he appreciates your thoughtfulness, he's running out of space to keep them! Rather than buying him a gift, he would ask you to support one of his chosen charities.
All donations, large or small, will help these wonderful organisations.

A reminder about online chats. They're not John!
Please don't be fooled by fake Facebook and other accounts pretending to be John. If someone in online chats tells you they are John, they are lying to you. John has just set up a Facebook page and he also uses Twitter. He replies at random to some of the tweets from his fans when he's able to. He also has an Instagram account and a YouTube Channel.
