Gutted students mourn the loss of Legends.
The water levels of the Tyne rise three centimetres today as tears flow through the streets of Newcastle. The speculation is true: Legends has gone.
Alpha Newcastle took to Facebook earlier today to confirm the sad news: “Unfortunately the rumors are true, today we found out Legends has been sold.”
Uni-x co-owner and manager of Fraternity Wednesdays Sal Sinawi said on Facebook earlier: “Legends Closing, Near sub zero degrees in Newcastle and Starbucks Jesmond have run out of Pain au Chocolat. The End is Nigh!!!!!”
Scenes resembling the economy crisis of 2007 can be seen on the cowfields and on the corner of Tesco’s jesmond as promoters use wristbands to mop up their tears.
Seriously though, we’ve all lost a shoe or 5 on the sticky floor in Legends, been caught on Pull Cam, screamed One More Tune so loudly that we lose the ability for speech for a minumum of three days, and generally just had a sweet ass time, covered in VK, wiggling around drunkenly to Dancing in the Moonlight.
Student Jake Usman also took to Facebook: “I f*cking love Legends! How much would it cost to buy? Let’s all chip in and buy it back! #FinalBlackOut #WheresTheAlternativeMusicGone.”
One student told The Tab: ”I’m just sad because I left half of my dignity in there and now I’m not sure I can go and collect it.”
Rumours are rife of what will take Legends’ place, such as Jamie Oliver’s Restaurant or Harry’s Bar and Grill – a hygienic restaurant option to say the least – or maybe even a hotel.
