Eddi plays the Playhouse

Posted: 08 May 2015

Scots singer Eddi Reader brings her blend of traditional and contemporary vocals to the Playhouse in Whitley Bay on 13 May. 

From intimate gigs at local folk clubs in her home town of Glasgow in the early 1980s, to harmonising with Annie Lennox and making her debut on the silver screen alongside Zac Efron, Claire Danes and the Jools Holland Orchestra in the 2008 Hollywood film ‘Me And Orson Welles’, Eddi has enjoyed a remarkable career, becoming a notable figure in contemporary British music.

Awarded an MBE in 2006 for her services to singing, she is best known for her success with punk outfit Gang of Four and Fatal Attraction whose single ‘Perfect’ and parent album ‘First of a Million Kisses’ both topped the British charts.

Following the success of her seventh solo album ‘Love Is The Way’ in 2009, Eddi continues to draw fans to handpicked venues across the world with renditions of songs written with her long-time writing partner Boo Hewerdine, life partner John Douglas (of The Trashcan Sinatras) and collaborations with Irish singer/songwriter Declan O’Rourke – and even an Eddi/Fleetwood Mac ‘mash up’.

Touring the world has helped Eddi and her band form a unique relationship, as her unforgettable vocals blend seamlessly with the rhythm of the music. She brings life to all forms of song, with a selection of numbers from her latest album and her career.

Tickets £22.50, sold via Box Office at PLAYHOUSE Whitley Bay. Opening Hours: Monday-Friday 10am-4pm, Saturday 10.30am-2.30pm. Call 0844 248 1588 or book online at www.playhousewhitleybay.co.uk

Sage Gateshead 17 May If you didn’t see your local balding but long-haired, ageing prog-rocker on Wednesday night it was because he was at Sage One. Clad in a uniform of black tee-shirts and leather waistcoats an army of early Genesis fans descended on Gateshead to see Steve Hackett.  They weren’t disappointed as the guitarist who played on half a dozen early Genesis studio albums and three live ones turned on the style. As you’d expect from a tour that has already been...
