Gazette readers were out in force when Spandau Ballet star Tony Hadley performed at the weekend.

We asked readers to send in their own pictures from the concert, in Bents Park, South Shields - and what you produced was Gold.

Performing as part of this year’s South Tyneside Festival, the singer got through a huge repertoire of hits – including Spandau favourites True and To Cut A Long Story Short – in the third of this year’s free concerts.

Here are a selection of the best pictures you sent in.

The singer was the headliner at the event but at one point shared the stage with Andy Hutchison, the lead singer of local support act 4 Worried Men, to sing a duet.

About 14,000 music fans are thought to have gathered for the event.

“There’s not many places in the UK that do this kind of thing.”

“There’s not many places in the UK that do this kind of thing,” said Tony.

“So it’s great to see it happening in South Tyneside.”

Tony’s appearance follows two hugely popular concerts over the past weeks, with the final show featuring reggae and pop band UB40 taking place this Sunday.

The final concert is likely to be a full house once again so anyone attending is advised to arrive early before the gates open at 1pm.
