Johnny Depp set to make appearance in Gateshead tomorrow

Published

on

Music fans across the North East will be ecstatic to hear that Johnny Depp is due to make a special appearance in Gateshead this Thursday (2 June), as long time friend Jeff Beck takes to the Sage as part of his ongoing tour of the UK.

This comes after the 58-year-old Pirates of the Caribbean star appeared unsuspectedly at Beck’s gig in Sheffield on Sunday (29 May) sending gig-goers into a frenzy.

Depp also joined Beck on stage on Monday and Tuesday (30/31 May) at two Royal Albert Hall performances in London, where the duo played a combined seven songs together including covers of Jimi Hendrix’s Little Wing, Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On? Dennis Wilson’s Time, and A Day in the Life by The Beatles.

The surprise appearance at the concert was Depp’s first public appearance, following on just two days from his six-week defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard – in which a US jury is currently deliberating the result. In the case, the Kentucky native sued Amber for $50m for an article she wrote claiming to be an abuse victim, with his ex-wife, 36, in-turn counter suing him for $100m.

Sadly, the Sage show is now sold out to many fans dismay. But no doubt there will be plenty on-lookers searching for Depp along the Quayside tomorrow.

“People In My Country Need Peace”: Free Exhibition in Sunderland

Published

on

On Wednesday 16 March visitors to Pop Recs in Sunderland will be able to see One Day Changes a special exhibition and short film presented by Skimstone Arts’ Associate Artists and photojournalists Ako Ismail, from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, and Shahor Omar, from Kirkuk in Iraq, who both live in the North East of England with lived refugee experience.

Originally created in response to ‘One Day’, the theme of Holocaust Memorial Day 2022, this free exhibition features a collection of documentary photography which show how in one day something so dramatic and life-changing can force people, including children, who were leading normal lives, to suddenly become refugees fleeing their homes, and become survivors looking for a safe place.

Topical for obvious horrendous reasons the exhibition is on display at Pop Recs this Wednesday (16th March) from 11am to 4pm and marks the anniversary of the Halabja chemical attack 34 years ago on 16 March 1988 during the closing days of the Iran-Iraq War in the Kurdish city of Halabja.

Claire Webster Saaremets, Artistic Director at Skimstone Arts said: “We’re honoured to be able to share this poignant exhibition with audiences at Pop Recs on the anniversary of the Halabja chemical attack and support with creating of the featured film The Smell of Apples.

“This exhibition comes at a time when the world is being confronted with the realities of war on a daily basis as new atrocities unfold in Ukraine. One Day Changes aims to encourage people to explore how humanity can share understanding, care and support that positively affects people’s traumatic lives. By witnessing and acknowledging people’s experiences we can learn more about the past and work together to take action to create a safer future.”
