Limahl at 'Cookson Summer Festival' South Shields, Tyne & Wear (UK)
The weather could not have been more perfect, a cloudless sky with glorious sunshine and a gentle sea breeze made this a day to remember for organisers, artists and of course the audience.
Set in beautiful Bents Park on the sea front, thousands came to watch Limahl, Toyah & Nick Heyward (ex lead singer of Haircut 100) strutt their 80's stuff as part of this years event.
Limahl opened the show in his inimitable style and quickly had the audience singing, clapping and dancing along as he performed a set of 80's classics, which for good measure, also included his version of 'This Love' the Maroon 5 hit that he performed on ITV's 'Hit Me Baby One More Time' earlier in April.
The audience duly showed their appreciation with loud applause and the feel good factor was definitely in abundance as they basked in the sunshine from their deck chairs and tucked into their picnics.
Toyah Willcox & Nick Heyward didn't disappoint either, both performed excellent sets and rounded off a perfect day.
