Enjoy the sound of the 80s this summer, as funk and soul icons Shalamar and pop group The Fizz will both be performing at our South Tyneside Festival concert on Sunday 31 July 2022. A great ending to what will be a memorable series of concerts this summer.

Grammy award-winning Shalamar, a hugely influential soul music act which grew out of popular American dance show Soul Train, have produced a vast catalogue of hits including A Night to Remember, I Can Make You Feel Good, There It Is and I Owe You One.

Shalamar, featuring Howard Hewett, Jeffrey Daniel and Carolyn Griffey, will be joined on the bill by former Eurovision winners and pop favourites The Fizz.

The Fizz drew a huge crowd when bandmates Cheryl Baker and Mike Nolan performed at the Festival in 2018 as a duo, while Jay Aston recovered from surgery. We can't wait to see all 3 perform on stage!

Hugely popular local band Rivelino will also perform.

Supported by Metro Radio, Greatest Hits Radio, Minchella & Co, Ramside Hall, Port of Tyne, Colmans Seafood Temple, Colmans Fish and Chips and South Tyneside Homes
