Middlesbrough Town Hall has re-opened after a 21-month and £7.7m refurbishment funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and Middlesbrough Council. The building plays host to a range of entertainments acts including comedians, stars of rock and pop, classical music and more.

Legendary Sheffield-born singer songwriter and Squeeze front man Paul Carrack plays a date at Middlesbrough Town Hall on Friday, March 22 next year.

With a back-catalogue of hits to his name including How Long, Tempted and The Living Years alongside stints with Ace and Mike & The Mechanics, Paul's uniquely soulful voice is a must for his millions of fans around the world.

His songs have been performed by some of the biggest names in music including The Eagles, Diana Ross and Tom Jones and he is constantly in demand as a session keyboardist, having recorded and toured with Elton John, Van Morrison, Roger Waters and BB King, and most recently on Eric Clapton's world tour.

Middlesbrough Town Hall Business Development Manager Rob Guest said: "We are delighted that Paul has included a date at the Town Hall on his 2019 tour - Paul has been dubbed by the BBC as 'The Man with the Golden Voice' and is undoubtedly a key figure in British pop history and an all-round musical talent.

"As his devoted fans know all too well, a Paul Carrack show is truly something very special and something not to be missed."
