Huge demand during priority booking period.

An exclusive pre-sale of tickets for the North East’s biggest ever pop show has experienced phenomenal demand.

A 48-hour priority booking period for Sunderland fans saw a frenzy of ticket sales for this summer’s North East Live event. Featuring JLS, The Wanted, Connor Maynard, Little Mix, Rita Ora, Amelia Lily, Lawson, Stooshe, Union J and with more acts still to be confirmed, the show is set to wow North East pop fans.

The family-friendly music extravaganza, designed to suit music fans of all ages, takes place on Saturday 22 June and tickets go on general sale tomorrow at 9.00am (Friday 8 February) and again demand is expected to be huge. Priced start from just £25 for reserved seating and pitch standing, through to hospitality packages starting at £95 plus VAT, offering some of the finest seats in the house.

SAFC commercial director Gary Hutchinson said: “There’s such a buzz about this show already, which is fantastic. With reasonably priced tickets and a fantastic line-up it’s going to be hugely popular. Our general sale starts tomorrow and I’d urge people to book early to avoid disappointment.”
