KISS: END OF THE ROAD WORLD TOUR
Set yourselves for a crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy niiiight as legendary rock band, KISS stop off in Newcastle for a final farewell.
After an epic 45-year career that launched them to the pinnacle of rock and roll, American hair raisers KISS roll into NE1 this July for a special performance on their End of the Road tour.
Known for their trademark larger-than-life performances, KISS have proven for decades why they are one of the most iconic live acts left in rock n roll. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, who have gone on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide, rose to fame with their outrageous stage performances that incorporated fire breathing and pyrotechnics. Make sure you catch fan favourites Detroit Rock City, Love Gun, Deuce and more.
ARRIVALS: MAKING TYNESIDE HOME
This powerful exhibition at Discovery Museum celebrates Tyneside’s diverse population and multiculturalism! Featuring a moving series of portraits that document the experience of those who have migrated to the region from overseas, the exhibition captures the stories of 41 individuals who have migrated between 1939 and 2018.
Presented using work from professional photographer and solo exhibitionist Jeremy Abrahams, this is an event definitely worth checking out this summer!
