The first names have been revealed for Newcastle's Live From Times Square.

DMA's will open the outdoor city centre concert series on August 4, with Becky Hill topping the bill the following day. Pixies will close the three-day event on August 6, with tickets for all shows on general sale at 10am on November 6.

Returning in 2021, the series has previously hosted performances from acts such as Fatboy Slim, Manic Street Preachers and the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson. Organiser, Steve Davis said: 

"We’re super excited to welcome back Live from Times Square. We've had some iconic shows at this event in the past with the likes of Fatboy Slim and Manic Street Preachers and we're looking forward to many more nights like those.

"Our team is fully committed to getting the live music scene back in action and thriving once again and we're delighted to welcome an all-star cast of headliners in Pixies, Becky Hill and DMA's.

"Becky delivered an astonishing show at Virgin Money Unity Arena over the summer and she was without a doubt one of the stand-out shows. We're long-time fans of DMA’S and to see their rise has been nothing short of astonishing. Pixies, well, it’s an honour to be welcoming one of the most iconic and influential alternative indie bands of all time to the Live from Times Square stage."

Back in August, DMA's rescheduled their UK and Ireland dates planned for the autumn to spring 2021 in response to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. They'll also headline shows in Manchester and Leeds as part of Sounds of the City Festival in July.

Becky Hill, meanwhile, will drop her debut solo album in March, and has moved her UK and European tour dates to the summer due to the pandemic.

Pixies put out the single Hear Me Out in September, while their last full-length was 2019's 'Beneath The Eyrie'. They'll play three rescheduled Irish dates and support Pearl Jam at one of their huge gigs at London's Hyde Park in July.
