Roland Gift, South Shields

Roland Gift

South Tyneside’s Summer Festival rolled on in South Shields yesterday with a free concert in the Bents Park by ex Fine Young Cannibals front man Roland Gift. Once again a huge crowd was in the park and the rain stayed away as we all enjoyed a medley of the FYC’s 1980’s hits including “Good Thing”, “She Drives Me Crazy”, and “Ever Fallen in Love”.

Although Fine Young Cannibals broke up in 1992 Gift continues to entertain with a gutsy set.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 165mm lens, 1/180 second, f6.7, iso 200

  6. Hmm, I’ve just returned from holiday and can’t rightly remember, I certainly cannot remember any reference to a new album. Songs I can remember included Johnny come home, Suspicious minds, Ever fallen in love, She drives me crazy, and I’m not the man I used to be. Hope that helps!
