Sam Fender at Finsbury Park - Crowd praise the ‘unreal’ night for local hero

Sam Fender took to Finsbury Park yesterday, delighting a 45,000-strong crowd, and social media users were very impressed with the local hero

Local hero Sam Fender continued his tour of Seventeen Going Under last night with an intense set at Finsbury Park.

The crowd were treated to debut of new track Alright, an encore that featured Angel in Lothian and a setlist packed with hits.

One user on Twitter, who shared footage of Fender performing Angel in Lothian, labelled the gig “absolutely unbelievable” and it’s easy to see why.

A usual run of tracks that steered Fender’s set at Glastonbury marked another strong outing for the singer and his Geordie troupe.

Attendees were full of praise for the Hypersonic Missiles singer, with one person labelling the gig “a real moment” while another added that it was “unreal, such a great gig”.

For the lucky 45,000 who nabbed themselves a ticket, it seemed like an unreal night.

One user on Twitter wrote that they “feel like a kid waking up on Xmas morning” because they got to see the Spit of You singer perform live.

Fender’s next few UK dates are coming up fast, with Tramlines in Sheffield on July 22 and a gig at Truck in Oxfordshire the following day.

From there, Fender embarks on a stint in America, followed by a return to the UK with the Victorious Festival on August 28.

It’s straight back to America for Fender after that date though, so fans at home hoping to catch the 28-year-old singer will have to act fast or wait until the next tour.
