31.12.2014. Sage. Gateshead.
This New Years Eve we are supporting Candi Staton at Sage, Gateshead. We play a full length set later at the same venue to bring in the new year
‘You’ve Got The Love’ as Candi Staton, a true great of soul, sings in the new year at Sage Gateshead.
Revellers can end 2014 on a high as the million selling soul and disco princess Candi Staton heads to Tyneside for an unforgettable concert.
Performing all of her classic hits including ‘Young Hearts Run Free’, ‘Nights on Broadway’ and the iconic ‘You Got the Love’ alongside brilliant new material from new album, ‘Life Happens’, this will be a New Year’s party you won’t want to miss.
Staton’s sweetly roughened voice first captivated music lovers in the late sixties, and a series of wonderful records took her from the Southern Soul circuit in the US to the Billboard charts. Today, young artists such as Florence & The Machine, Christine Aguilera and Joss Stone all cite her as a major influence.
And it’s not just Candi who’ll be getting the party going. Her concert will lead into a wonderful NYE party at the iconic Tyneside venue, with The Haggis Horns, DJ’s, dancing and cocktails helping you to carry on the fun into the early hours.
