An intimate Covid-secure gig is to bring together the frontmen of two of the UK’s foremost folk-punk bands, The Levellers and Ferocious Dog.

The Levellers, from Brighton, need little introduction; one of the most popular indie bands in the country in the ’90s, they once played to a record Glastonbury crowd of 300,000 people.

Ferocious Dog are from Nottinghamshire, and might not be as well known as The Levellers, but play a similar brand of folk-punk, and their live shows are usually lively affairs.

This one will be much more sedate, however, as Mark Chadwick from The Levellers and Red Ken from Ferocious Dog play an acoustic set, in front of an all-seated audience.

The show is at Newcastle University Students’ Union on Saturday 14 November, and tickets will only be sold for tables of six people.

As you’d expect, they’re very limited in number, and they go on sale from at 10am on Monday 14 September.

  • Note: tickets for the evening show sold out within two hours of going on sale, so a matinee was added.
