The Seventeen Going Under star will play two nights at the Newcastle United stadium next June. Find out when he's playing and how to buy tickets.
Sam Fender previously announced that he will play St James' Park - home of his beloved Newcastle United on Friday 9th June 2023 and now he's announced a second date on Saturday 10th June next year.
The musician tweeted: "I always joked that one day we might play St James' Park in Newcastle, and now we're actually gonna play it".
He added: "It's gonna be such a special moment and I hope you all join us for it."
Sam says of the date: "It's a childhood dream come true, and we're actually gonna play it on the 9th June. This is literally gonna be the biggest show we've ever done - our first stadium show, which is so weird to say! I can't wait, it's gonna be absolutely lush and I hope to see yas all there."
Fender will follow in the footsteps of Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan in playing the venue, and becomes the first Geordie musician to headline the 55,000+ capacity stadium.
Support acts will be Inhaler and Holly Humberstone.
Fender has also teased some local celebrities could be joining him for the St James' Park show, but he's wary about giving away too much at this stage.
He told the Daily Star: "I don't want to confirm anything that then doesn't happen, but I'm sure there will be a couple of celebrity guests. We will have loads of treats for everyone!"
Sam claims that he'd like to relax after the show at his local, the Low Lights Tavern, but admitted there's usually about "a hundred" fans waiting for him outside.
He said: "It's tough going to Low Lights after a show in Newcastle. Everyone assumes that's where I'll go after a show so there tends to be a hundred people waiting outside. Potentially, it'd be great to have Low Lights involved, but it always ends up being like a festival after our shows.
"I can't really go anywhere without there being a shower of selfies."
Friday 9th June - Newcastle United's St. James' Park
Saturday 10th June - Newcastle United's St. James' Park
