Mr. Billy Ocean

Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 7 August 2015 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Billy Ocean singing as the headline act at a free concert in the Bents Park, South Shields. It was another huge day out as part of the South Tyneside Summer Festival. First time I'd ever known people turned away as the gates were closed on 25000 revellers, the rest had to experience what they could from the outside!

Take a look at this drone footage to get an idea of how popular these concerts are.

@michael miller: Squeezed in very tightly near the front of stage at the Bents Park Michael. Getting in there was a problem, getting out was even worse!
