If you love nothing more than belting out a bit of Whitney or Whitesnake you'll want to keep the last Friday of October free as a massive power ballad night is taking over Times Square in Newcastle.

After launching packing out Wylam Brewery on a regular basis in the days before coronavirus, The Power has been missing in action, but it will make what is sure to be a triumphant return on the Friday of Halloween weekend, October 29.

The event is being billed as Bat Out of Hell special in a nod to one of king of the power ballad Meatloaf's biggest hits.

As well as songs from the man himself, there will be an eclectic mix of music which will provide the soundtrack to a huge part in the big Oktoberfest marquee in the city centre.

An online teaser for the event reads: "As most of you now know, The Power isn't just the greatest power ballads night on the planet but it really is the greatest night of your lives! Everyone leaves with no voice, aching feet and a headache the next day to remind them of the ultimate party night out they've ever had!.. And sadly it has been out of action this past year due to the pandemic, so we thought what better way to return to your lives than to do it with a huge monster Halloween event in Times Square!

"We have rounded up more legendary performers to grace our stage, more entertainers, a ginormous LED screen with interactive visuals throughout, enough confetti to black out the sun and an arsenal of the best power ballads ever to grace the 80s, 90s and now in 2021!

Issuing a rallying call for people to snap up their tickets, it adds: "If you like to let you hair down, have a few drinks and sing as loud as you can all night to your favourite 80s & 90s tunes fuelled with added power ballads then this is the party for you!

"The one night that is worth booking the babysitter, booking the taxi & rounding the troops up for! "
