Free/upgrade to a Priority Plus ticket for £6 (under 5s free)

Rock band the Lightning Seeds, known for hit songs such as Pure, Lucky You and Sugar Coated Iceberg, will headlining the 2nd of our free 4 concerts at South Shields’ Bents Park on Sunday 21 July.

Initially formed as a solo project by lead singer, Ian Broudie, the Lightning Seeds expanded into a band after the success of the album Jollification and went on to produce a number of hit records including the platinum album, Dizzy Heights.

Ian Broudie is also well known for producing and performing the popular single Three Lions with David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, which was released to mark England hosting the 1996 European Championships and sold more than one million copies, hitting the number one spot three times.

Support is from the Understudies, a fantastic local band featuring four of South Tyneside’s finest musicians. We’re delighted to welcome them back on the Bents Park stage after a great set back in 2017 when they supported Busted.


It’s a FREE concert to enjoy, but why not upgrade to a Priority Plus ticket.

A Priority Plus ticket allows earlier access into the event to pick the best spot, along with access to a dedicated bar area and toilets. If you would prefer to arrive later your ticket will still provide you with access, however your viewing position may be more towards the rear of the crowd.

Priority Plus tickets are £6 (under 5s are free). They can only be purchased in advance and only a limited amount are available. Tickets are on sale now from: or call Ticketmaster on 0844 844 0444

Or in person at the Shop @ The Word, South Shields Market Square

Other info

Gates open approx. 12 noon for Priority Plus ticket holders and approx. 12.45pm for free entry for which no tickets are required.

You are welcome to bring your own food and drink, but there will be plenty of food outlets and bars in the park too. You can help us reduce the amount of waste at concerts by not bringing glass bottles into the park.

We will be carrying out bag searches for people entering the park. To help speed up the process visitors are encouraged to limit the number of bags they bring, and should leave any sharp instruments at home.
