WHAT YOU’VE MISSED THIS YEAR

MANNY FAGNET

Perry, James, Jim and Jamie launch their band here at The Tuns, and it’s going to be an extravaganza!
You have been warned!

From Pat Benetar to AC/DC via Pearl Jam, Audioslave, The Black Crowes and so many more. It was something really special.

WEST BROOK & SWAMP TEA

Proper swamp blues & rock from West Brook, Bad Bob Bates, John Dawson and Martin Bell.

Their Tuns debut was phenomenal!

THE STONES STORY

Six decades of The Rolling Stones, bringing all the classics and a few less known gems too. Always a good show.

MAIDEN ENGLAND

The North East’s longest running Iron Maiden band, and for good reason.

THE FORCE

A band that needs no introduction to those who enjoy their live rock. The Force have been filling venues across the north east for many years.

THE HYBRIDS

Tuns regulars, who helped us see in 2024, and we were really keen to bring them back on a regular night.

Lots of rock classics, and a few tracks we don’t get to hear too often too!
