Homecoming show for region's pop acts
SOME of the country’s most popular music acts performed in the region last night.
X Factor winners Little Mix, whose band members Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall are from South Shields, headlined Sound Waves 2013 with chart-topping boy band McFly.
The festival of pop was staged at Bents Park in South Shields and also featured the seaside town’s favourite son, Joe McElderry, himself an X Factor winner.
Other acts included Britain’s Got Talent finalists Luminites and up-and-coming band The Vamps.
Jade Thirlwall, 20, from Laygate, said: “Shields is where it all started for me, and it’ll be amazing to be able to give something back as a thank you for all the support everyone has given us.”
