The Classic Rock Show 2020
Tuesday 11 February, 7.30pm
The classic rock fan’s ultimate live jukebox!
From AC/DC to ZZ Top and everything in between, including Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, Queen, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Meatloaf plus much, much more.
Anthem after anthem, riff after riff, solo after solo, The Classic Rock Show brings the original recordings back to life on stage, with a huge sound and light show to match. Culminating in a show-stopping guitar duel that is not to be missed.
A gem of a rock show – sore throat guaranteed!
Big Family Rock Out
Saturday 15 February, 11am, 1pm, 2.30pm
Get your rock on and bring your little ones along for an hour of rock-themed singing, dancing and playing with our friendly and engaging live musicians.
This Valentine’s weekend will be all about the love of rock!
Air guitars, full-size air drum kits and extreme rocking out is encouraged.
Beth Hart plus Kris Barras (acoustic duo)
Saturday 15 February, 7.30pm
Sold out – returns only
The GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Beth Hart will be releasing her new studio album War in my Mind on 27 September and, following the stunning sold out performance at the Royal Albert Hall, she is bringing her band to Sage Gateshead with her 2020 tour.
Beth is riding a creative tidal wave, firing out acclaimed albums, hooking up with the biggest names in music and rocking the house each night with that celebrated burnt-honey voice. She is as real as it gets. In a music industry full of glossy production and airbrushed photoshoots, this is one artist who throws down her cards, shares her darkest secrets and invites you to join her for the ride.
“More than any record I’ve ever made, I’m more open to being myself on these songs,” Beth explains. “I’ve come a long way with healing, and I’m comfortable with my darknesses, weirdnesses and things that I’m ashamed of – as well as all the things that make me feel good.”
Big Fish Little Fish
Sunday 16 February, 12.30pm & 3pm
Big Fish Little Fish are back with a love-themed event on 16 February! Join the award- winning, critically acclaimed family fun event for the post-rave generation of parents – helping them to be responsibly irresponsible since 2013. The raves are designed to be as much fun for the adults as they are the children, and are social, daft, anarchic and creative spaces for all the family to enjoy.
On the multi-sensory dancefloor there will be confetti cannons, balloons, bubbles and giant parachute dance. Craft tables with themed crafts, giant colouring mural and playdoh table. Toddler play area with tents and tunnels and baby chillout space with mat and small ball pool. Licensed bar and free tattoo transfers. There will also be a fabulous face painter (£3.50 per face).
Optional (but very much encouraged!) fancy dress: think hearts, red, multi-coloured…you decide!
12.30-2.30pm Club Classics and House Grooves
Special guest DJ and North East house legend Tony Hutchinson (reunion/colonel porters) takes control of the ones and twos alongside resident DJ Mudfoot Blaps (truoldskool/fantasia) and CoMusica up-and-comer, Patrick Smyth
3-5pm Rave Anthems and Techno Bamgers
After a stunning performance at Sage Gateshead’s birthday bash, Tokyo Acid Cru are back to drop some proper old skool vibes! The Cru will bring the very best of acid, techno, hardcore and rave anthems alongside our North East resident DJ Mudfoot Blaps (truoldskool/fantazia).
