The Sage Centre, Gateshead - Friday 2nd June ’06

Darren......
Just got back from one of the best concerts I have ever been to. This is the sixth time I have seen Brian live and he just gets better, I took my Mum this time and she was bowled over.  Fantastic night!. All the best for the rest of the tour. Thanks. Darren

Ian MacBeth.....
From Don Mescall's fantastic set to a brilliant performance by the man with the voice Brian Kennedy, even when the Amplifier seemed to go off he still carried on with one of his songs. Even the introduction from a tape was enthralling as it grabbed the attention of his adoring fans with a sense of humour at the last second before he made his appearance on stage.

Songs from previous albums and his new album 'Homebird' was mesmerising, and the rapport between his audience was strong including the banner regarding his anatomy from the second row which struck a chord with a few females in that row. My personal favourites of the night were Van Morrison's Crazy Love' / 'Have I Told You Lately' combination, 'If You Don't Believe In Me' and the Irish entry for Eurovision which I feel was the best song ' Every Song Is A Cry For Love'. But even though they are my personal favourites the rest of the songs were wonderful to listen to. It can safely be said that Brian Kennedy has a big following in the North East Of England and will be welcome anytime in this region especially at the Sage Gateshead, and not Newcastle as Brian mentioned. Its ok Brian we will forget the little geographical mistake as its only a walk across the water.

So as a fan and from many others who enjoyed the show many thanks and especially for meeting us and signing the many goodies people purchased at the merchandise table manned by Jane. Thank You Jane from all of us in the North East hope to see you Very Soon. Kind Regards.  Love and Best Wishes. Ian

The Sage in Gateshead was in fact only my second ever Brian Kennedy concert and a fantastic venue for Brian's superb voice.  I bought the new album in Newcastle and only had chance to listen to it once before the concert but this is growing on me very rapidly, with the opening track "If you don't believe in me" an early favourite.

It was great being able to meet Brian afterwards and many thanks for signing the album cover for me.  Hopefully, it won't be so long before I see Brian again (a concert in East or North Yorkshire would be particularly appreciated!) and if I spot you again Jane, I will endeavour to say 'hello' next time!

Mr N.S. Hunter........
Just a quick note to say what a fabulous concert it was last friday. After the bitter disappointment of losing our money when the Newcastle Opera House went bankrupt the day before his planned concert two years ago, it more than made up for it with a superb night.

Brian come back to the Sage, the sound was superb and showed your singing voice off to its true potential. By the way the new album is amazing and when you sang "You raise me up" at the end, you are one of a few performers that brought a tear to my eye. Looking forward to next time already.
