18,000-strong crowd turns out at final South Tyneside Festival concert
South Shields-born musician Lee Gray wowed crowds when he opened the show with a number of popular covers. Lee was a well-known performer as one half of the popular North East duo Woodface, before moving to New Zealand.
He said: “This is my first Bents Park gig. I used to go to the concerts as a kid and I always thought it would be amazing if I got to perform here. So it means a lot to be playing here and have all of my family in the crowd.”
