Dave Stewart - Dave Stewart To Play First Hometown Show In 44 Years
Dave Stewart will return to his hometown next month (Sep12) to play his first show there in 44 years.
The former Eurythmics star grew up in Sunderland, north-east England and last performed there at the age of 16.
He never returned to the city during his time in the Eurythmics, but he is finally heading home for a show there as the first date of his The Ringmaster Tour.
The rocker will perform at the Sunderland Empire - the venue where he saw his first ever gig as a youngster.
Stewart tells British newspaper The Daily Mail, "The Eurythmics never played in Sunderland, so my last gig there was in a folk club at 16. The first gig I ever saw was Free, with the late Paul Kossoff, at the Empire. Starting a tour there will be epic."
Stewart is scheduled to take the stage at the Sunderland Empire on 3 September (12).
