Paul Heaton has been announced as the latest headliner at Tynemouth’s Mouth of the Tyne Festival this summer.
The former Beautiful South frontman will head back to the North East after his arena tour with Jaqui Abbott at the back end of 2022. Heaton has also performed at Tynemouth Priory before, playing a headline show on the North Tyneside coast five years ago.
Heaton, who is known for hits including Caravan of Love, Happy Hour, Rotterdam and Song for Whoever, will be joined by a special guest singer who will be revealed soon according to the event organisers.
This is the third lineup announcement for the weekend, which runs from Friday, July 7 until Sunday, July 9 and is the final headline announcement with Siouxsie Sioux and Gabrielle taking the other two closing set slots. Paul Heaton will be performing on Saturday, July 8.
