Pentangle Reunion Tour The Sage Gateshead

Pentangle Reunion Tour

The Sage Gateshead July 12

I can’t remember whether I ever saw Pentangle before; I know that they played quite a lot of times at Sunderland Empire and I have a feeling that I might have gone to see them their once in the 70s but I couldn’t swear to it. I’d read a lot of good reviews of the reunion shows, and thought I would go along and see what I made of them.  The Sage is a wonderful venue with a lovely concert hall, and also offers cheap tickets for many of it shows (£7 each). You are seated right up in the top balcony above the stage, but the view isn’t bad, and well worth the price. So I’d bought a couple of these cheaper tickets and went along with Laura to the show.

I have a couple of the albums at home, and had been playing Basket of Light for a couple of days prior to the show to get into the mood; but the only song that I know really well is Light Flyte which came quite early on in the set. I quite enjoyed this concert, they are all excellent musicians and the reaction of the crowd was very positive. Laura wasn’t too impressed; it’s not really her cup of tea.

After the show we lined up and got my programme signed by all members. Laura got a flyer for the show signed.
