Monday May 29 saw Jedward headline the Pride festivities at Durham, in England’s North East. The Dublin twins went on stage at 5pm and were set to come off at 5.30, but instead treated fans and other festival goers to an hour long show.
Many fans had travelled great distances to attend the show, and were not disappointed as John and Edward performed a selection from all three of their albums, their independent singles, and some covers, including Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’.
Many thanks to Amy and Shauna-Leigh, as well as Durham Pride, for videos from the show.
John and Edward are no strangers to the Pride circuit, having previously performed at Blackpool Pride in 2015. They return to the North East on 23 July co-headlining the South Tyneside Festival, at Bent Park, South Shields. See here for tickets and further information.

Tonight marks the grand final of Eurovision 2017, held in Kyiv, Ukraine. Tomorrow is the 6th anniversary of the Eurovision Grand Final 2011, which was held in Dusseldorf Germany, and the date that many people across Europe, and indeed the world, caught their first glimpse of Jedward, as they took to the stage representing Ireland, with their song, ‘Lipstick’.
John and Edward, who last night performed a DJ set and Meet and Greet at Glasgow’s Savoy Nightclub, shared on their Twitter account this morning their joy at celebrating six years of ‘Lipstick’:
Jedward finished in 8th place in 2011, giving Ireland their highest placing in over a decade. Ireland hadn’t ranked higher since 2000, when Eamonn Toal finished in the 6th spot, with his song, ‘Millennium of Love’.
Let’s revisit Jedward’s final performance:
John and Edward of course returned to Eurovision in 2012, where they finished in 19th place with their song, ‘Waterline’. The competition that year took place in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Jedward today uploaded a video on their Twitter account of John singing a cover of Harry Styles’ new song, ‘Sweet Creature’.
Accompanied on his guitar, John’s voice and playing is a slightly more uptempo arrangement of the One Direction singer’s second solo effort.
Jedward teased that there would be more such covers released if fans re-tweeted this one.
