County Durham rockers, Twister, make their Sage Gateshead debut this late festive season, the quartet appearing on December 29.

Founded by Stevie Stoker the quartet, Jake Grimes (guitar & backing vocals), Ryan Lee (bass) and Joe Major (drums) will be supported by Newcastle-based newcomers, The Escapades.

Having recently recorded their single, Trading Hearts, at the Sage, Stoker said: “It’s an amazing feeling when a venue as prestigious as the Sage Gateshead ask you to do a show there.

“Every time we plan a show we try and add more to it.

“We want people to come and have a great experience, not just to see a gig.”

Trading Hearts was the last single from their State of Mind Collection and was released as a standalone track at the Georgian Theatre in early November, the occasion being the closure of the old and opening of the new for the pop-rock quartet.

“I’ve been to a few shows there but this is the first time that Twister will have performed the Sage,” continued Stevie.

“This is going to be a very much raising the bar kind of show though, and with us, you never know quite what’ll happen.”

In experiencing a Twister show, there’s actually no superlatives that can combine the complete feeling their shows offer.

Spectacular, loud and full of energy are among the expectations, and a will to satisfy the wants, and needs, from their ever-growing fan-base.

In attending the Sage show though, the lads preparing to usher in a new era, you may have to just see it to believe, after all, Stevie and the lads are workaholics….

“We are in the studio at the moment working on more, new music,” added Stevie.

“Some of which we will be playing at the Sage in December.

“We can’t wait to show people what we’ve been working on and get a sneak preview of what 2019 will have in store.”

Twister, plus The Escapades and Nephilim, perform at Sage Gateshead on Saturday 29 December; a VIP performance is available from 6:30pm with tickets priced at £15 whilst the main show begins at 7:30pm – you can purchase tickets from http://www.sagegateshead.com/event/twister-plus-the-escapades/
