Angel of the north Newcastle (usually shortened from Newcastle upon Tyne) is a large city in Tyne and Wear, England. It is located on the north bank of the River Tyne and was formerly the county town of Northumberland. The city was founded in Roman times under the name Pons Aelius. The city is the 20th most populous in England; the larger Tyneside conurbation, of which Newcastle forms part, is the 5th most populous conurbation in England. Newcastle is a member of the English Core Cities Group[3] and (with Gateshead) the Eurocities network of European cities.

Other well-known acts with connections to the city include Sting, Dubstar, Dire Straits, The Wildhearts, 3 Colours Red, Duran Duran, and more recently Max´mo Park, The Sound Explosion, Yourcodenameis:milo, The Motorettes and Kubichek!. Neil Tennant, singer from the Pet Shop Boys, was schooled in Newcastle. There is also a thriving underground music scene that encompasses a variety of styles, including Drum and Bass, doom metal and Post-rock.
