Lindisfarne celebrate over fifty years on the road at The Apex with a set including memorable hits delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band’s stage act since 1970 when founders the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to carve a unique place for themselves in British rock music.
The original band finally called it a day in 2003, but now Lindisfarne are back with a classic five-piece line up of long-time members fronted by Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar) and Alan Hull’s son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars).
With a repertoire of much-loved songs like Meet Me On The Corner, Fog On The Tyne, Lady Eleanor and Run For Home and a reputation for live performance second to none, Lindisfarne’s power to galvanise festival and concert audiences remains undimmed – guaranteed to get the Apex crowd on its feet and singing along.
“We’re looking forward to re-booting last year’s birthday celebrations,” says Rod. “It really is time to party!”
The 2021 Lindisfarne Fingers Crossed Tour coincides with the broadcast this October of a BBC TV documentary about Alan Hull, scheduled to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of the band’s seminal album, Fog on The Tyne.
In the film, Brit award-winner Sam Fender explores the archives to discover the real Alan Hull. Also contributing are artist fans including Sting, The Unthanks, Elvis Costello, Kay Greyson and Mark Knopfler.
Lindisfarne will be at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds on 27th August 2021. You can find out more or get tickets at theapex.co.uk.
