This gig has been cancelled.

Are you ready to dump your all-time low mood and jack up the volume with some high-energy tunes? First Dates, a quartet of punk rock virtuosos hailing from the vibrant streets of Newcastle, UK, is about to whisk you away on a nostalgic trip back to the golden era of pop punk. This isn’t just any gig; it’s a heartfelt homage to the iconic Blink-182, guaranteed to have you singing at the top of your lungs and maybe, just maybe, skateboarding down memory lane.

The rendezvous is set for Friday, 12th of April, at THE TURF, Front Street in Consett. Doors swing open at 8pm, with the show kicking off at 9pm. Get ready to be serenaded with not one, but two adrenaline-fueled sets, each lasting an hour, packed with the anthems that defined a generation. From the angst-ridden lyrics to the infectious guitar riffs, First Dates promises a night of unadulterated pop punk bliss. Why settle for a mundane evening when you can dive into a pool of pop punk classics? Whether you’re a die-hard Blink-182 fan or a pop punk aficionado, this event is your ticket to reliving the glory days when skinny jeans were tight, and the music was even tighter. It’s more than a gig; it’s a communal celebration of the era that had us all saying “What’s My Age Again?” as we refused to grow up.

And for those who can’t wait to say “I Miss You” to boredom, follow First Dates on Instagram at @firstdatesband or hit up their Facebook page at Here, you’ll get a sneak peek of what’s in store and keep up with the best pop punk and Blink-182 covers this side of the Atlantic. So, don’t act like it’s your “First Date” with the pop punk scene. Grab your friends, dust off your checkerboard Vans, and prepare for a night of head-banging, heart-thumping, and fist-pumping action. Let’s make this an evening to remember, because in the end, “All The Small Things” really do make life grand.

See you at THE TURF, where every chord strummed and lyric sung is a tribute to the bands that had us rocking out in our bedrooms, convinced we’d never need to act our age. Don’t miss out on this class night of musical mayhem. It’s time to rock, roll, and reminisce with First Dates!

Friday, 12th of April, at THE TURF, Front Street in Consett, Doors 8pm

  1. How I RECOVERED MY LOST BITCOIN… I have had good times with Fxzn Binary but the terrible experience far overwhelms all the good they’ve done. I invested $500,000 in two of their investment platforms in Europe. My Principal and Interest plummeted to zero because my broker decided to auto run trades and lost all my money. I had gone in too deep. I contacted (( Mrs,Charlotte Jason )) I was given a proper lowdown of the situation and the brilliant recovery strategy furnished with an exceptional customer service experience . I recovered 95% of all my hidden bonuses alongside my principal investment. Thanks to their team! If you`re facing such challenge you can contact her via:
