The Undertones plus support presented by North Tyneside Council as part of the Mouth of the Tyne Festival

EVENT INFORMATION

  • Date: Thursday 12 July 2012
  • Time: 7.30pm

Support announced as No School Reunion.

The Playhouse Whitley Bay, in partnership with North Tyneside Council present punk rock band, The Undertones.

This fantastic group will kick-start the four-day Mouth of the Tyne festival when they take to the stage at the Playhouse in July.

The new wave band was formed by five friends in Derry in Northern Ireland in 1975. The original line-up drew inspiration from the likes of the Beatles and released thirteen singles and four studio albums before disbanding in July 1983. With the arrival of punk rock in late 1976, the artistic focus of the band changed, with artists such as the Sex Pistols and the Buzzcocks becoming major influences.

The band have since reformed, replacing lead singer Feargal Sharkey with Paul McLoone.

This year's Mouth of the Tyne Festival is sponsored by TyneMet College and Port of Tyne.
