A NORTH-East band’s national tour is coming to an end in Durham next month,

The Lindisfarne Story will be performed at the Gala Theatre, in Durham, on Sunday, April 14.

The show will be the last of the band’s 2019 UK tour.

The Northern Echo:

The show was written and is performed by former front-man Billy Mitchell and founding member Ray Laidlaw.

Ray Laidlaw said: “Since 2015, the Lindisfarne Story has toured the UK with over 120 concerts to critical acclaim. Billy and I have performed in theatres, arts centres and festivals plus a history making show on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and another on a North Sea cruise.

“Whether you’re a rabid Lindisfarne fan or just a lover of ‘60’s and ‘70’s music, this show is for you and we look forward to seeing everyone in Durham.”

A spokesperson for the show said: “It is an affectionate and enthusiastic celebration of one of the UK’s most original and successful groups.

“The show takes the audience on a trip through fifty years of the Geordie group’s history from its 1960’s beginnings in the pubs and clubs of Tyneside to the concert halls and festivals of the present day.

“The story is told through the group’s classic songs, rare and unseen video, audio clips and private photographs linked together with tall tales and scurrilous gossip. From Whitley Bay to Frisco Bay, from Rothbury to Glastonbury, the Lindisfarne Story is a brilliant evening’s entertainment.”

Tickets are £20 and are available from the Gala Theatre’s box office or by calling 03000 266 600.
