Local boy Sam Fender topped the bill at Newcastle's This is Tomorrow last night.

The North Shields star's homecoming set was the talk of the weekend as festival-goers partied at Exhibition Park.

Fender had played Reading & Leeds Festival, Neighbourhood Weekender and Isle of Wight in recent weeks, before taking to the This is Tomorrow stage.

The singer/songwriter played fan-favourite hits and new music as he stunned on the Town Moor.

Fender even arrived on stage to the tune of 'Going Home', the song Newcastle United FC use when walking into St James' Park, played by his band in the black and white strip.

Attendees had been warmed up throughout the day by stars including Fontaines DC, beabadoobee and fellow Geordie, Andrew Cushin.

Youngster Jack Denton, 11 years old and from Newcastle, was also the centre of attention on Sunday after being gifted a slot on the line-up by none other than Sam Fender himself.

After the 'Hypsersonic Missiles' singer finished his set last night, fans were quick to take to Twitter and gush about the night.

One social media user wrote: "Cried from the moment Sam walked on stage till the moment he walked off. I just love seeing local lads doing well man, in my absolute element."

Another Tweeted: "Seeing Sam Fender live is the most sensational thing in the whole entire world, he never disappoints. The hangover today is completely worth it."

One fan added: "Still not over how unreal @samfendermusic was last night. Best gig in ages."

Finally, one attendee summed up the evening saying: "@samfendermusic really is something else. A smorgasbord of rock, poetry and political nouse. And the best part? He’s all ours. What a night. Hero."
