Sunderland is getting ready to welcome a music legend on Wednesday night, when Bruce Springsteen arrives at the Stadium of Light.

Always a huge draw when he comes to the North East, it's been 12 years since Bruce and The E Street Band have been to Wearside, with them delighting fans on their Wrecking Ball tour back in 2012. And now, after over a decade's wait for Bruce to be back in Sunderland, he'll be on stage at the SoL on May 22.

The UK leg of his latest tour began in Wales at the start of this month, with the dates so far also taking him to the likes of Belfast, Cork and Dublin, with the latter seeing him pack out a sun drenched Croke Park on Sunday evening.

An expected crowd of 45,000 is set to descend on the Stadium of Light to see him this week and the one bit of key information need to be aware of is that there is NO support act for the concert.

When you're a megastar like Bruce, you have plenty of your own hits at your disposal, meaning there is no need for any warm up act. And, with that in mind, fans will ned to make sure they are into the Stadium of Light in good time to see The Boss himself.

Entry into the ground is set to be allowed from 4pm, three hours before Bruce is due on stage, with an anticipated start time of around 7pm. Bruce is set to be on stage for over three hours, with the gig set to finish around 10pm.
