A classical boy band is coming to South Tyneside with a repertoire of famous songs.

Blake are on the way to the Customs House, South Shields, with Songs of Stage & Screen.

The vocal harmony trio will be performing songs from hit films and musicals when they come to the theatre, in Mill Dam, on Friday, June 24.

Group member Stephen Bowman, said: “We’ve been up to South Shields five or six times now and what’s exciting this time is that we’re bringing a brand new show.

“Our previous shows have been around our albums but this one is all about the music of movies and musicals. It’s really a show that anyone who enjoys songs from stage and screen can come along to.

“We do all sorts, like songs from Gladiator and Top Gun, songs like Hallelujah and Time To Say Goodbye which have been used in lots of films, and in terms of musicals we perform songs from Phantom of the Opera, West Side Story, the Wizard of Oz and lots of others.

“It’s a really lovely mixture and I think the reason the songs mean so much to people is because of the stories that come with them.

“People hear the songs and the emotion of the stories come to them. One of my favourites to perform is Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Whether people know it from the film or the stage show, it’s always one that gets a big reaction from the crowd.”

Blake teamed up with Dame Shirley Bassey at Christmas to release a special duet of The Christmas Song, and have performed on stage and on TV around the world. Tickets cost £22. To book, go to www.customshouse.co.uk or call the box office on 0191 454 1234.
