Sam Fender at O2 City Hall Newcastle: All you need to know including times, support acts and ballot information

The North East star is returning to Newcastle this month for a special one-off show.

Following his tour of Europe, Sam Fender returns to Newcastle on Tuesday May 24 for his first ever show at the O2 City Hall.

The weeknight gig is being played in support of North East Homeless, a local charity which Fender has recently become a patron of.

The charity provides support, assistance and training for people across the North East without a home and those who have previously experienced the same struggles.
