AN ICONIC North East dance night will be back with a vengeance, with a stellar line up of dance music legends.

Promise and Shindig were the go-to events at the now closed Foundation night club, where every Friday and Saturday night party goers would turn up in their hundreds.

And now Promise resident Richard Tulip has announced plans to bring the night back for a special event at Newcastle’s The Riverside on Saturday 24 July.

The line-up includes K-Klass, who created some of the biggest dance classics of all time, which resulted in five UK top 40 hits and a GRAMMY nomination.

Also appearing are John Kelly, Paul Bleasdale, JFK and Richard Tulip himself in the main room, with a whole host of past and present music heroes in room two such as People Get Real, Mark Armstrong, Craig ‘Disco’ Dewson and Tony Hutchinson.

Room two will also host Phil Littledyke B2B Alan Ruddick, Mark Hutchinson, DJ Destroy, Daz Flatman, Mark Deakin, Neil Foreel and Neil Craven.

Richard, who is also Director of Lintz Hall Farm and one of the team which created the North East’s biggest Halloween Scare Event ‘Psychopath’, explained the reasoning behind the event.

“I stopped DJing professionally many years ago, however this last 18 months has been a challenge to say the least and I found myself turning to music as a release,” he said.

“I started streaming live every Friday as Promise used to be on a Friday at Foundation – and those were crazy days.

“At the time I didn’t realise just how special those nights were, week after week playing alongside the biggest DJs in the world and the crowds were always amazing.”

He said: “The connection everyone had was unique. Promise became more of a big family than a club event and I guess those happy memories were a great escape for people during lockdown so it seems only fitting that promise returns for a special one off event to celebrate the end of lockdown.”

Advance tickets for Promise – which runs from 2pm to 2am at The Riverside, Newcastle upon Tyne – are now on sale from at £12 at
