Pixies, Becky Hill and DMA’S (pictured) are going to play a gig series in Newcastle next summer.
Live From Times Square will take place in the city centre on Wednesday 4th August (featuring DMA’s), Thursday 5th August (Becky Hill), and Friday 6th August (Pixies). More dates and acts are still to be announced, too.
Festival Organiser Steve Davis says: “We’re super excited to welcome back Live from Times Square. We’ve had some iconic shows at this event in the past with the likes of Fatboy Slim and Manic Street Preachers and we’re looking forward to many more nights like those. Our team is fully committed to getting the live music scene back in action and thriving once again and we’re delighted to welcome an all-star cast of headliners in Pixies, Becky Hill and DMA’s.
“Becky delivered an astonishing show at Virgin Money Unity Arena over the summer and she was without a doubt one of the stand-out shows. We’re long-time fans of DMA’S and to see their rise has been nothing short of astonishing. Pixies, well, it’s an honour to be welcoming one of the most iconic and influential alternative indie bands of all time to the Live from Times Square stage.”
The event has previously hosted Fatboy Slim, The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, The Libertines, Manic Street Preachers and more.
