Sam Fender will play Newcastle’s St James’ Park on the June 9 2023, becoming the first Geordie musician to headline the 55,000+ capacity stadium.
He said: “Ever since I started this band, I always used to joke with the boys that one day we might play St James' Park in Newcastle. It's a childhood dream come true, and we're actually gonna play it on the June 9. This is literally gonna be the biggest show we've ever done – our first stadium show, which is so weird to say! I can't wait, it's gonna be absolutely lush and I hope to see yas all there.”
Support comes from Inhaler and Holly Humberstone.
