Sam Fender has announced a second headline show at St James’ Park in Newcastle, which will take place next summer on 10 June, following on from his first show on 9 June.
The North Shields singer-songwriter is the first Geordie musician to headline the 55,000-capacity stadium, with Fender calling the gig a “childhood dream come true”.
“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,” he said in a statement.
“It's a childhood dream come true, and we're actually gonna play it on the 9th June. 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.”
Irish rock band Inhaler and singer Holly Humberstone have been booked as support acts.
