What's On - Music & Dance


Olly Murs
Until Monday, May 20, 2019

He’s come a long way since placing second in the 2009 series of the X Factor, but now the multi-platinum selling artist, television presenter and The Voice judge is taking to the stage once more to bring music from his latest album, You Know I Know, as well as all of the fan favourites you’ll want to sing along to.

Utilita Arena, Newcastle
This Is Tomorrow Festival
Friday, May 24, 2019 - Sunday, May 26, 2019

Newcastle’s stupendous open-air festival is back. NME and Q Award winners Foals will be kicking things off with a headlining set on the Friday night – sharing the weekend with The Vaccines, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and You Me At Six (amongst a whole host of others) – before stellar Welsh rockers Stereophonics bring the festivities to a close on Sunday.

It’s hard to believe Brooklyn pop-rock heroes Wheatus’ eponymously-titled 2000 debut album produced the worldwide smash hit single Teenage Dirtbag 17 years ago this year. The band’s ode-to-adolescence seems timeless and, along with a whole host of other classics from their back catalogue, are sure to delight fans old and new.

Strictly Come Dancing: The Professionals
Saturday, June 1, 2019 - Sunday, June 2, 2019

Direct from BBC One’s award-winning TV show, audiences can now enjoy the incredible, world-class talent of Strictly’s professional dancers live as they perform exquisitely-choreographed ballroom and latin routines at the Sunderland Empire – with the sequins and sparkle we have all come to know and love.

Spice Girls
Thursday, June 6, 2019

They’ve been making Headlines for their unexpected return to music, but as far as we’re concerned it’s Viva Forever for our favourite four-piece (always in our hearts, Posh). For all the Spice fanatics out there, you’ll Wannabe at this gig and Stop everything else – it’s going to be epic. Plus, they’re going to be supported by sensational singing superstar Jess Glyne, so Say You’ll Be There?

Forest Live
Friday, June 28, 2019 - Saturday, June 29, 2019

Held annually in seven beautiful forest locations across the country, Forest Live is a major live music series managed by the Forestry Commission, and a unique night out. Dalby Forest will be the only date in the North of England that inimitable mod-punk rocker Paul Weller will be playing this year, so fans won’t want to miss him alongside singing superstar Jess Glynne, both of whom will be headlining the Forest Live tour – bringing critically-acclaimed music to the stage in this truly one-off event.
