Henning Wehn
Eins, Zwei, DIY

Saturday 20 Sept & Wednesday 12 Nov, 8.00pm
After more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns... though he still couldn't eat a whole one. As Henning’s assimilation is not yet complete he hasn't lost his sense of wonderment at the foibles of British society. Why does everybody want to be owned by a house? What’s wrong with having the Euro? And why hold society and government responsible for personal underachievement… you’ve only got yourself to blame for not being born into a better social class. Expect an evening-long crash course in personal accountability and have a right old laugh at the same time. Wunderbar.



  Steve Howe

Monday 22 Sept, 7.30pm
Steve has been active in the guitar world for over 50 years, performing and recording with Yes, Asia, GTR, ABWH, Tomorrow and his own trio. He co-wrote Roundabout, Close To The Edge, Tales of Topographic Oceans and Awaken with Yes, and has embraced blues, rock, psychedelia, prog rock, jazz and classical. Following a successful tour in 2013, Steve plays some of his best known work in this solo show. With a few stories thrown in, this is a chance to spend an evening with this world-class guitar player.



  From The Jam
The Public Gets What The Public Wants Tour

Tuesday 23 Sept, 7.30pm
The Jam exploded onto the music scene in 1977 with their ferocious debut single. With a catalogue that includes 18 Top 40 singles, they became the sound of British youth and one of the greatest bands in UK history. From The Jam, featuring former Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings, have a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Rescheduled from Friday 20 June

“there may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road” LouderThanWar



I Left My Heart in Roker Park…
