Newcastle legends Maximo Park return to play TWO very special socially distanced shows at The Tyne Theatre!

A note from Maximo Park: – “It would be great if you would consider buying an album bundle rather than a single ticket (£5.00 more to get a bargain CD and a limited signed print to mark the occasion), as this would not only help us to continue making music for a living, but might also help us gatecrash the charts and get on Top of The Pops, or something…”

(Covid-19 update (12/05/2021): ‘Maximo Park shows due to take place on Sat 27th February, then Sat 24th April 2021 will be rescheduled to Friday 25th June 2021. Tickets for the original dates will remain valid for the rescheduled date at the same time.)
