Was it really 16 years ago that we saw Gareth Gates launch his career on the reality show Pop Idol? It was, and that made us feel quite old! The reason for dragging this name to the fore is because soon he is set to perform at the Club 3000 bingo hall in Peterlee!
Where once Gareth Gates played sell our arena tours, it would seem that it doesn’t quite have the same popularity and has taken to performing in substantially smaller venues.
Club 3000 Bingo Take Pop Idol Runner Up
It was Will Young who won the 2002 Pop Idol talent show, although most people’s money was on Mr. Gates.
This didn’t deter Gareth Gates, he may not have been crowned the Pop Idol winner but his Unchained Melody went to number one. His second single, Anyone of Us, and his third, Spirit In The Sky, went to number one too.
Later he made it to the top five with Sunshine and Say It Isn’t So. More recently he was seen in the Big Reunion in 2014 as part of the boyband 5th Story.
He’s also been in musicals but for bingo players the excitement comes around his appearance at the Peterlee Club 3000 bingo hall.
A date has yet to be confirmed but it has been hinted at being 31st March 2018. Ticket details should be available soon.
Club 3000 Bingo Facebook
The expected visit to the club by Gareth Gates was announced on 10th January 2018 on the Club 3000 bingo Facebook page and it received a good reaction.
One person even suggested her relative, a Katie Price, should go just because of her name! (It was reported that Gareth Gates lost his virginity to Katie Price).
Keep an eye on their Facebook page for details of the event. We are sure they’ll post all the information well ahead of time and if you’re keen to go, you’ll likely need to book quickly.
