The Late Shows is the ultimate weekend of after-dark culture in NE1. It’s a unique opportunity to see some of the city’s finest events, experiences and exhibitions in a new light as Tyneside’s top venues open up after hours.

Following a whirlwind year that saw him sell out The O2 in a historic last ever performance with his band, Soft Cell, Marc Almond arrives at Sage as part of his first solo tour in over a year. He’ll be showing off his talents with the help of his live band, re- visiting some of his best-loved hits!
ROH Royal Ballet Live 2019 Triple Bill
