His name’s Moore, Roger Moore….and he’s set to leave audiences shaken not stirred in Newcastle later this year.
Tyne Theatre and Opera House will welcome the legendary actor to its stage for An Evening with Sir Roger Moore on Monday, November 14.
Following the huge success of his tours over the last three years, Sir Roger, who celebrates 71 amazing years in show business this year, will embark on a new tour this November.
The James Bond star will chat with biographer Gareth Owen about his extraordinary life and career, with inside stories and exclusive anecdotes ranging from his internationally renowned TV shows The Saint and The Persuaders, through to Hollywood blockbusters and, of course, the 007 films.
Sir Roger starred as James Bond between 1973 and 1985, mastering the role with Live and Let Die and bowing out with A View to a Kill, starring in The Man with the Golden Gun (1974), The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981) and Octopussy (1983) in-between. Sir Roger was knighted in 2003 for his charity work and remains a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
Gareth Owen, who will interview Sir Roger, is an author of nine books and has worked with Roger Moore on his autobiography My Word Is My Bond and Bond On Bond. Owen has interviewed Sir Roger previously at the BFI Southbank, the Barbican Centre and at various UNICEF fundraisers throughout Europe.
An Evening with Sir Roger Moore will be followed by a Q&A session, with the unique opportunity to put a question, live, to the Hollywood star.
Theatre Director Joanne Johnson said: «We’re incredibly excited to announce that Sir Roger Moore will be visiting Tyne Theatre & Opera House. It will be an honour to have 007 on our stage! This talk will be a wonderful opportunity to hear stories from Sir Roger’s impressive career, and with the chance to put questions to the man himself, this is a night not to be missed.»
