Newcastle is preparing to welcome some of the world’s most famous musicians to the city in 2023. Last year was a great one for music lovers as the likes of Rod Stewart and Kendrick Lamar performed in the city.
One concert almost everyone will have their eye on in 2023 is Sam Fender. The artist, who is from the area, has become one of the most in demand performers from the UK and will be performing at St James’ Park this year.
Fender shot to fame in 2019 with the release of his album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ which has racked up over 90 million streams on Spotify. He was also recently announced to be headlining the Reading and Leeds Festival after a string of headline shows in 2022.
