Legend Shakin’ Stevens to Play Middlesbrough Town Hall

By Published September 13, 2018

SHAKIN’ Stevens has announced a date at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Thursday, March 21 as part of an 18-date Greatest Hits and More tour.

The platinum-selling entertainer and performer will be joined by his band to perform fan favourites, surprises and, of course, his much-loved hits including Oh JulieHot Dog and This Ole House.

The UK's biggest-selling artist of a decade - with 33 hit singles and four UK No1s to his name and chart-toppers around the world - recently returned to the UK charts with the release of his acclaimed 2016 album Echoes of Our Time

Inspired by Shaky’s research into his family history which uncovered tales of wartime heroics, salvationists and strife in the copper mines of Cornwall, and with influences from blues, folk and Americana as well as his trademark rocking style, it was one of the most surprising and acclaimed albums of the year.

Shakin’ Stevens said: “I’ve been going through my catalogue of songs in preparation for the tour, and re-introducing myself to the many and varied styles of music I’ve recorded during my solo career.

“From country rock to Cajun, classic rock to Latin, and blues to Americana I’ve had the pleasure of re-discovering the jewels from my repertoire that are so well-liked.

“Of course there’ll be hits and some songs that I haven’t performed live on stage for a decade or two….so some surprises!

“I’ve also included well-known songs from other artists whose work I admire, together with album tracks and newer songs, bringing it right up to date!

“I can’t wait to get back on the road and to have a great time with the audiences.”  

Middlesbrough Town Hall Business Development Manager Rob Guest said: “We are delighted to be hosting Shaky on his 2019 tour – I am sure fans both old and new won’t want to miss this one.”
