Folk rock veterans Lindisfarne’s ‘2021 Fingers Crossed Tour!’ ends with the band’s traditional festive performance at Newcastle’s City Hall on December 18th
The local legends celebrate over 50 years on the road at the venue with a set including memorable hits delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band’s stage act since 1970 when founders the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to carve a unique place for themselves in British rock music.
The original band finally called it a day in 2003, but now Lindisfarne are back with a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar) and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars).
With a repertoire of much-loved songs like Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed – guaranteed to get The Platform’s crowd on its feet and singing along.
“As always, we’re looking forward to our City Hall gig,” says Rod. “It signs off a great tour despite the challenges of lockdown. It’s been fantastic to see so many of our fans turn out to see us!”
