Preview: Glenn Miller parachutes into Sage Gateshead - Jan 5

Watch the skies! Major G. Miller is on a mission to promote the music of the dance band era and, if ticket sales are anything to go by, Sage Gateshead is heading for a sell out when Ray McVay once again marshalls his troops to take Tyneside by storm on Sunday (Jan 5).

If Miller bails out (aim for the Tyne, Glenn!) and goes AWOL you can be sure Ray McVay will step into the breach as a more than capable dep for the popular American bandleader. The Glenn Miller Orchestra UK has been keeping the Miller flame alive decade after decade and there is little sign of audience fatigue. 

Military fatigues may be in evidence at three o'clock - don't worry, its all part of the fun, dress as you choose and sit back and enjoy a couple of hours of WWII nostalgia. American PatrolIn the MoodLittle Brown Jug and, of course, Moonlight Serenade. We've got you surrounded, come out with your hands up...for you, the war is over! Book now on 0191 443 4661.

I think you've got the phone number wrong. Shouldn't it be Pennsylvania 6-5000?
