He’s Jimmy Nail’d it! Pet and Crocodile Shoes crooner Auf Wiedersehen, 69, debuts trendy new hair and stylish makeover on lads’ night out with fellow Geordies Alan Shearer and Sting
Auf Wiedersehen, Pet and Crocodile Shoes crooner Jimmy Nail recently debuted quite the makeover on a night out with the guys.
The unlikely pop icon, 69, sported a trendy new haircut, smart tweed coat and scarf while at a pub called St. Vincent in Newcastle with fellow Geordie’s Alan Shearer, 52, and Sting, 71.
It was ex-footballer Alan who posted the photo and wrote alongside it: ‘3 Geordies doing well!!!’
Vicky Pattinson – famous for her time on the reality show Geordie Shore, wrote in the comments, ‘Squad goals.’
Alan was in the audience on April 20 when Sting put on a packed show in Newcastle with Ain’t No Doubt singer Jimmy standing up to sing with the Wallsend native.

Sting performed at the Quayside theater to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Tyneside venue.
While there, he talked about his career and performing acoustic versions of some of his classic hits.

Jimmy was born in Longbenton, north of Tyneside, in 1954.
He famously took on the role of brickie, Leonard ‘Oz’ Osbourne, in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, despite originally auditioning to be an extra.
In 1985 his cover of Rose Royce’s Love Don’t Live Here Anymore was a huge UK hit and in 1992 he returned to the charts with Ain’t No Doubt which gave him a number 1 hit.
He released Crocodile Shoes in 1994 for the television drama Crocodile Shoes, which reached number four on the charts.
In 2014, Jimmy was part of the musical project Sting’s Last Ship.
