Famed for hits such as "Run For Home", "Meet Me On The Corner" and "Lady Eleanor", the ever-popular Geordies under the steerage of founder member Rod Clements continue to win the hearts and minds of live music lovers over 50 years on from their founding in the north east of England. 

Says Clements: "People keep coming back to Lindisfarne and while that carries on, we carry on.

"Each year we seem to put on more shows and we're thrilled to be adding 02 Academy theatres to our itinerary in 2024".

The tour coincides with the release of legacy releases by both founding member Alan Hull and the band itself.

ABOUT LINDISFARNE

"Meet Me On The Corner", "Lady Eleanor", "Run For Home" and "Fog On The Tyne" are all songs that continue to resonate down the years and in the process have slipped into the very fabric of British culture. 

In 2024, Lindisfarne are set to entertain with an extensive repertoire of world-renowned songs delivered in the inimitably engaging way that has trademarked the band's stage act right back to 1970.

That's when band writers the late Alan Hull and Rod Clements emerged from Tyneside to quickly carve out a unique place for themselves fronting one of British rock's most original bands.

Their pioneering sound, combining acoustic instruments like mandolin and fiddle with their electric blues roots, proved the perfect medium for their catchy, memorable songs.

The Clements-penned hit "Meet Me On The Corner" paved the way for their classic ‘Fog On The Tyne' release to become the UK's top-selling album of 1972.

Further acclaimed albums were to follow, buoyed up by powerful live performances. An accessible, unpretentious style bestowed them with an enviable reputation as festival favourites, while the Lindisfarne annual Christmas concerts held in their native Newcastle became the stuff of legend.

Today's Lindisfarne comprises a classic five-piece line up of long-standing members fronted by original founder-member Rod Clements (vocals, mandolin, fiddle, slide guitar), Steve Daggett (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Paul Smith (drums), Ian Thomson (bass) and Alan Hull's son-in-law Dave Hull-Denholm (vocals, guitars, piano).
