Ballot open for intimate Sam Fender show in Newcastle next month

Sam Fender is coming back to Newcastle for a super intimate set

Sam Fender is coming back to Newcastle next month as he announces a one-off intimate show in the city.

The North Shields star will take to the O2 City Hall stage on Tuesday, May 24 with money raised for the show going to the North East Homeless charity.

The O2 City Hall will sell 1,750 tickers for the night, which may seem a big crowd for an 'intimate' show - but just earlier this month Fender sold out the Utilita Arena in the city twice over, which has a capacity of 11,000.

Those Seventeen Going Under shows earnt rave reviews and now fans of the local lad can see him again sooner than imagined.

Tickets for the event will go to O2 and Virgin Media customers exclusively via a ballot.

Entries for the draw open at 10 am on Monday, April 25.

It costs a donation of £5 to get a chance to win a pair of tickets with customers able to donate up to eight times, to earn eight entries.

The ballot will close at 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 15.

Proceeds from the night will be funnelled directly back into the North East, with money raised going to the North East Homeless charity.

At the time, he said: "Absolutely honoured to become a patron for North East Homeless, the work that Brian and the team do to help the most vulnerable in our community is incredible, I’ve met some real friends for life through this and I can’t wait to see what the future brings! Big love guys!"

Fender has fast come true on his promise of support after announcing the O2 City Hall show.

Writing on Twitter today, the singer said: "This is going to be next level. Newcastle get ready, I’m coming to you for a special intimate gig at the @O2CityHall on 24th May.

"We’ll be raising money for @2014NEH Enter the ballot for £5 to win a pair of tickets, exclusively through #O2Priority from Monday 10 am x."
