Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalists The Jive Aces are on their way to South Tyneside.

The yellow-suited jive and swing band will be performing at the Customs House on Saturday, August 15.

They’ll take to the stage at the Mill Dam venue, in South Shields, at 7.45pm.

The group were the first ever band to reach the semi-finals of the ITV1 talent in 2012 and performed for The Queen as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

The six-piece have supported the “Say No To Drugs. Say Yes To Life” campaign for many years, giving concerts across the world to raise awareness of the dangers of drugs.

Lead singer Ian Clarkson, said: “People look up to musicians and see them taking drugs and think that they then have to use them to be a great artist. What they don’t realise is that without drugs they would be a lot happier, play a lot better and live a lot longer.”

Tickets for the gig cost £16 with a £15 concession. To book, go to www.customshouse.co.uk or call the box office on 0191 454 1234.
