Bob Geldof in Concert plus support Rod Pinn
Sunday 27th May 2012
Management by arrangement with Tony Denton Promotions presents "Bob Geldof in Concert" plus support Hosted by the PLAYHOUSE and North Tyneside Council.
Bob Geldof is an Irish singer, songwriter, author, occasional actor and political activist. He rose to prominence as the lead singer of the Irish rock band The Boomtown Rats in the late 1970s and early 1980s alongside the punk rock movement.
Along with U2's Bono, he has devoted much time since 2000 to campaigning for debt relief for developing countries. His commitments in this field, including the organization of the Live 8 concerts, kept Geldof from producing any more musical output since 2001's Sex, Age & Death album.
After Live 8, Geldof returned to his career as a musician by releasing a box set containing all of his solo albums entitled Great Songs of Indifference - The Anthology 1986 - 2001 in late 2005.
He has released a new album “How To Compose Popular Songs That Will Sell” on the Mercury Record label. It is his fifth album as a solo artist (his eleventh if you include his work in his band the Boomtown Rats). The album features 14 new Geldof compositions recorded with his band in his home and in various friends’ studios and produced by his longtime collaborator Pete Briquette.
Rod Pinn has been confirmed as the support for Bob Geldof.
