Tony Christie
Where to get your cultural kicks across the North East this week

11 JUNE
TONY CHRISTIE
Customs House, South Shields
0191 454 1234
www.customshouse.co.uk
Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald were among his early influences, so it’s not hard to see why singing legend Tony Christie continues to get his audiences swinging and swaying all night long. He brings a musical repertoire perfected over 50 years to South Shields on Monday. Think he might have been looking for Amarillo, though…

12 JUNE
CHRIS RAMSEY
Middlesbrough Town Hall
01642 729 729
www.middlesbroughtownhall.co.uk
Chris’s latest show is entitled ‘Just Happy to Get Out of the House’, but we think he’s downplaying things. Critically acclaimed and highly respected among his peers, he’s one of the most interesting comics working today.

13 JUNE
JONATHAN YEO: SKIN DEEP
The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle
01833 690606
www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk
The Bowes Museum is the exclusive UK home for this exhibition by one of Britain’s most acclaimed artists as he discovers what’s really involved in cosmetic surgery – and explores the psychology behind the search for perfection. It’s only running until 17th June, so this is your last chance!

15 JUNE
ANTHONY KING, STEPHEN BAILEY AND DAVE TWENTYMAN
Bishop Auckland Town Hall
03000 269524
www.bishopaucklandtownhall.org.uk
Veteran Anthony King has a uniquely dead-pan style that has, in recent years, been accompanied by hilarious songs. Also on the bill is ‘your new potty mouthed best friend’ Stephen Bailey and affable banter merchant Dave Twentyman.

15 JUNE
PET DEATHS
The Cluny, Newcastle
0191 230 4474
www.thecluny.com
After an effusive critical reception to their first three singles, a sell-out headline show in London and a successful mini-tour with Swedish producer Sir Was, Pet Deaths are bringing ‘celestial folk’ to the Cluny – for what will be their first show in Newcastle.
