The legendary co-founder of Eurythmics Dave Stewart is coming home for a live concert celebrating his 65th birthday and has invited Ryan to his party! Even though Ryan will be running a half marathon this same Sunday for The Graham Wylie Foundation.
Dave Stewart says ‘I’m looking forward to playing lots of the hit songs I’ve written over the years in the legendary Sunderland Empire.
I was born and grew up in Sunderland and have many great memories about my life there (I’m sure more will come flooding back). I was a struggling musician as a teenager in Sunderland so I chose to invite the three young local bands to perform before me.’
Dave performs with his Nashville all-star players Chad Cromwell (Drums, previously played for Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, Mark Knopfler, Joe Walsh), Tom Bukovac (Guitar – Hank Williams Jr., Sheryl Crow, Don Henley), Dan Dugmore (Steel Guitar – Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Loretta Lynn) and Michael Rhodes (Bass – Martina McBride, Buddy Guy, Lady Antebellum).
You can buy tickets for this event through Sunderland Empire.read more
