Despite Storm Miguel, thousands braved the rain to attend last year’s festival, which was held at Herrington Country Park in June, to see performances from the likes of Chesney Hawkes, Captain Sensible, T’Pau, Status Quo, Marc Almond, Betty Boo, Limahl, Owen Paul, Belouis Some, From the Jam, Kim Appleby, Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, Black Lace’s Conga Party and Jason Donovan.
The retro celebration had been due to return to the country park on June 6, 2020.
Original tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates, and each ticket is transferable to any other of the Let’s Rock locations in 2021.
The festival series also hosts events in Leeds, Exeter, Norwich, Newport and more. Each festival is a celebration of retro acts and features a line-up of household names.
It’s the latest large-scale event in the city to postpone with Summer Streets, Lamplight Festival and Sunderland International Airshow all forced to postpone or reschedule their 2020 dates due to Covid-19.
