The people behind the North East's largest outdoor music gathering, This is Tomorrow Festival, have confirmed that they will launch an innovative socially distanced outdoor venue this summer.
Taking place at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park, just a stone’s throw from Newcastle City Centre, Virgin Money Unity Arena - a first of its kind in the UK - will offer people the chance to come together and enjoy live music from household names. Ticket holders will enjoy a parking to platform experience in full safety while adhering to social distancing rules.
Opening this August and remaining in situ until the end of the summer, the arena seeks to breathe new life into one of the industries that have been hit the hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. Organisers hope to make up for the hundreds of festivals and concerts that have been forced to postpone or cancel this year.
Adam started out life as a doctor but after a brief medical career, he swapped his white coat for a microphone. One of the members of Amateur Transplants. With sellout tours and Edinburgh Fringe seasons, his cutting-edge, darkly humourous re-imaginings of pop and rock classics have gained him a cult following across the UK. His songs have over 20 million hits on YouTube (including the iconic London Underground Song) and have been in the iTunes comedy top ten consistently since 2008. 'Extremely funny. Never less than utterly clever' (The Daily Telegraph) 'This made me very, very happy' (Stephen Fry).
