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

Music fans can see two of the biggest names of the 80s for free when they head to the North East this summer. Midge Ure and Nick Heyward will be performing their respective hits on the Bents Park stage at our open air concert on Sunday 28 July.

Midge Ure is best known for being the frontman of Ultravox and for his part in the world-famous Band Aid single and subsequent Live Aid and Live 8 concerts. Widely regarded as one of the seminal artists of the 70s and 80s, the multi-award winning singer-songwriter has also enjoyed huge success as a solo artist, with his latest album Orchestrated reaching a top ten position on the Amazon UK chart.

Also headlining is Nick Heyward, who found fame as the frontman of Haircut One Hundred. Nick released four top ten singles with the new wave band, including Love Plus One and Fantastic Day, before leaving to embark on a successful solo career. He has enjoyed a number of chart successes over more than three decades, and has recently released an album titled Woodland Echoes.

Support is from the talented North East band The Breakfast Club who will perform a range of 80s inspired tracks.


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 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.
