Live Forever : Oaces plus Tom Hingley & The Kar-pets on Friday 11th March 2022


New indie tribute tour comes to Sunderland featuring OACES , TOM HINGLEY’S KAR-PETS & THE NATIONAL ANTHEMS

Indie fans in the North East are in for a treat late this summer when Live Forever – a new touring production – rolls into Sunderland celebrating music “that will never die”.

Taking place at the recently refurbished venue The Point, in Sunderland City Centre on Friday, March 11th 2022, Live Forever is set to feature the world's number one Oasis tribute - 'Oaces' - as well The Kar-pets, an Inspiral Carpets tribute band actually fronted by the arguably the original band's most famous singer, Tom Hingley.

The band will be joined on the bill by the official Oasis and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds DJ, Phil Smith - who has a special ear for all things indie having spent years on the road with The Stone Roses, as guitar technician.

The Kar-pets, meanwhile, are an Inspiral Carpets tribute band with a difference. The band's lead singer Tom Hingley was actually the lead singer with Inspiral Carpets from 1989-2011.

Tom sang on all the Inspirals chart hits, including 'This is How it Feels', 'Saturn Five', 'Dragging Me Down', 'I Want You', 'She Comes in the Fall' and all the songs on the group's four major-label albums; Life (1990) The Beast Inside (1991) Revenge of the Goldfish (1992) and Devil Hopping (1994).

Speaking about his return to the North East, Tom Hingley today said: “I'm very excited about coming to Sunderland again. The North East is very much a second home for Manchester music, and I have enjoyed many funny, riotous nights on Wearside in particular.

'You can expect a high octane performance of Inspirals classics from the Kar-pets. The band features Andrew Stewardson on keys, who was in the Mock Turtles, so it’s a Manchester Supergroup that beckons at the Point in September!”

Completing the bill at The Point is the UK's leading Britpop covers band The National Anthems, who will get the night started with optimum swagger.

The Anthems hail from Newcastle and its lead guitarist, David Welsh, played rhythm guitar for the last band to support Oasis, Detroit Social Club, then signed to Ian Brown's label, Fiction Records.
