The first night was a huge success and we still have another night of live music to look forward to!

The hugely anticipated weekend of live music in Newcastle got underway last night when Sam Fender played his first ever headline stadium show at St James Park, home to his beloved Newcastle United.

A sold out stadium welcomed Fender home for his first show in the city since May 2022 and the North Shields local pulled out all the stops, lighting St James Park up with fire cannons and pyrotechnics.
