Tribute band on stage

A TOP tribute band are set to bring the fury of a live performance of the Sex Pistols to Hartlepool.

As The Sex Pistols prepare to re-release their 1977 anthem God Save The Queen for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, people can turn the clock back with a performance from The Sex Pistols Experience.

The band, described by Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones as “superb” will be attempting to bring the house down at Hartlepool’s Town Hall Theatre, in Raby Road, on Friday, June 1.

The performance is part of Hartlepool’s five-day Diamond Festival, running from Friday, June 1 to Tuesday, June 5.

The long weekend of activity gives people the chance to relive entertainment from the decade the Queen came to the throne.

The Sex Pistols Experience will be supported by The Clashed, a tribute band to The Clash.

Michelle Daurat, Hartlepool Borough Council’s events and visitor service manager, said: “Love them or hate the, The Sex Pistols certainly made their mark on the Silver Jubilee of 1977.

“The Sex Pistols Experience and The Clashed are sure to stir up loads of nostalgia for those who remember the punk antics of the 70s and if you weren’t old enough at the time get ready to be blown off your feet now.

“Unlike the rest of our Diamond Festival events, this is one show which is strictly for the grown-ups.”

The Sex Pistols Experience starts at 8pm and tickets are priced at £14 or £13 for concessions.
