See 2014 out in style with soul diva Candi Staton.

The You Got The Love singer is heading to Tyneside for a New Year’s Eve gig at Sage Gateshead.

She’ll be performing all her classic hits including Young Hearts Run Free, Nights on Broadway and the iconic You Got the Love alongside material from new album Life Happens.

Candi first made her mark on the music industry in the late ’60s and she soon climbed the chart ladder, from the Southern Soul circuit to the US Billboard charts.

Today, young artists such as Florence & The Machine, Christina Aguilera and Joss Stone all cite her as a major influence.

Her concert will lead into a New Year’s Eve party at the venue, with a live band, DJs, dancing and cocktails.
