The brother of Geordie superstar Sam, Fender's latest concert promises to be his most exciting.

“This gig is an idea that has been in the back of my mind for some time and when it was suggested to me I thought, why not," said Fender. "I love gospel music and choral music and figured it would be interesting at least to hear my material with that treatment. This will be our biggest show to date.
