THE Johnson Brothers said they have had “the best time of their lives” while on tour across the UK.

Richard and Adam will perform in London tonight – ending an “unbelievable” four weeks which has seen them perform at 18 venues across the country.

The Holywell due have also sang on stage every night with their dad, Paul, who said he wanted to sing at the “first couple of shows”, before deciding to extend his involvement in the boys’ Impossible Dream tour.

Other family members have also been by their side for the majority of the tour.

Speaking to the Leader ahead of last night’s show in Salford, Richard said: “It has been absolutely unbelievable.

“The response we have had has been incredible.

“We have had two standing ovations every night and we have been meeting and greeting fans.

“Dad has been joining us on stage as well – he has been singing one song with us at each show.

“He was going to do the first couple of shows and see how it went, but he has been with us throughout.”

Proud dad Paul said it has been a dream opportunity to perform with his sons.

“It has been fantastic,” he said.

“It is a once in a lifetime thing for me, being there with them all the time, supporting them constantly.

“It has been like one big family adventure.”

He said getting up and performing was absolutely terrifying – adding he was just as nervous the 10th time as he was the first.

“I have been on some enormous stages,” he said

“It scares the living daylights out of me.”

Paul said after the show during the meet and greet fans have been encouraging him to join the brothers permanently to become a trio.

“People have been saying I must join them, but it’s not going to happen,” he added.

Richard said it has been great day to day going to places they have never been all over the country.

Before the tour the brothers said they were experiencing a mixture of “excitement” and “nerves” because this was the first time their fans were paying to see them headline a show.

“We had no reason to be nervous,” said Richard.

“It has been one of the best times we have ever had in our lives – doing what we love doing.

“The whole team have given us so much support.”

He said the highlights of the tour have been performing in Rhyl, Cardiff, Liverpool and Birmingham.

Richard and Adam, who shot to fame after finishing third on last year’s Britain’s Got Talent, also revealed they are set to return to the show this year after being asked to be involved with the series.

“I’m not sure yet what we will be doing, but we have been contacted by the show who want us to take part in some filming,” said Richard.

The pair also announced their next album is set to be released in August.
