Bands ready for music festival.
DOZENS of top musicians, including members of Lindisfarne and Britpop icons Dodgy, are lining up for a month of live music in the North East.
Performances will be taking place at the openair Amphitheatre, Sea Road, South Shields every Thursday and Saturday during June, as part of the South Tyneside Festival 2015.
First on the bill is The Alan Hull Songbook, featuring current Lindisfarne members Dave Hull-Denholm and Ian Thomson. They'll be taking to the stage, on June 4, to perform classics written by the band's former singer/ songwriter, Alan Hull, as well as a number of tracks never previously performed live.
The Amphitheatre live music programme, which runs twice weekly from 7pm until 9pm, will close on June 27 with a high pro-file performance by topselling trio, Dodgy. The band, who first wowed the crowds at the South Tyneside Festival in 2011, rose to fame in the 1990s with hits including If You're Thinking of Me, Staying Out for the Summer and top five smash, Good Enough.
The Amphitheatre live music programme is organised by South Tyneside Council in partnership with Minchella & Co.
