Sunshine Superman in Newcastle

Posted: 03 Oct 2015

After 50 years in the music business, Donovan has again taken to the road with a string of dates around the UK.

His tour arrives in Newcastle on 8 October when he plays the Tyne Theatre.

It’s a chance for the North East to see and hear the man who was at the forefront of the ‘flower power’ era and who had a strong influence on The Beatles: his fingerprints are all over the White Album.

Donovan first hit the big-time with his evergreen number Catch the Wind – for which he won an Ivor Novello award in 1965 – and decades later he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

The years have barely taken their toll as he celebrates his half-century in the business, and audiences will hear old favourites including Catch the Wind, Mellow Yellow and Hurdy Gurdy Man (which he wrote about his friend Jimi Hendrix) as well as some newer tunes.

Don’t miss the opportunity to roll back the years to a time of love and peace with one of the movement’s most illustrious exponents.

And, if you miss the gig, you can always recapture the memories with his new CD – Donovan Retrospectives.
