North Tyneside Council present Billy Bragg & Joe Henry - Shine A Light Tour


  • Date: Wednesday 25th January 2017
  • Time: 8 pm

North Tyneside Council in association with CODA present:

Billy Bragg & Joe Henry 

Shine A Light Tour


In March 2016 Billy Bragg and Joe Henry, guitars in hand, boarded a Los Angeles-bound train at Chicago’s Union Station looking to reconnect with the culture of railroad travel and the music it inspired. Winding along 2,728 miles of track over four days, the pair recorded classic railroad songs in waiting rooms and at trackside while the train paused to pick up passengers. On the Shine A Light tour, they’ll be playing songs from the journey, along with favourites from their own back catalogues.

Cllr Eddie Darke, cabinet member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “I am delighted to hear that Billy Bragg and Joe Henry will be performing at the Playhouse. I know they have many fans in North Tyneside, and the wider region, who will be thrilled by this announcement.”
