Pop stars to take over SoL

by Kate Smith

Tickets still available for music marathon.

Some of the UK’s biggest and best loved pop acts will join forces in a celebration of UK music, taking to the stage as part of ‘North East Live’ tomorrow. 

Headlined by top boy band, JLS,  The Wanted, Rita Ora, Little Mix, Lawson, Conor Maynard, Stooshe, Union J, Amelia Lily, James Arthur and more complete the one-off line-up in what is set to be the hottest music ticket of the summer.

The family-friendly music extravaganza, designed to suit music fans of all ages, will take place on Saturday 22 June, capping off a stunning month of live music at the Stadium of Light following on from the visits of music giants Bon Jovi and Rihanna.

Courtyards around the stadium will open at 12noon, with a range of refreshment and food kiosks open, along with funfair rides and entertainment for youngsters.

James Arthur is set to open the show at 2pm and the rest of the acts will follow in succession, however the order has not been determined as yet by the promoter.  

In between acts there will be on-stage entertainment from Capital Radio’s breakfast team Bodg, Matt and Jo-Jo and JLS will close the show, which is set to finish before 11pm.

Demand for tickets, which are priced from just £25, is expected to be huge and they're on sale now!
