90s pop star set for SoL appearance.
A new terrace chat has been heard at the Stadium of Light this season, with Sunderland fans adopting the 1990’s pop anthem ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ by D:Ream.
Fans have sung the chart-topping hit during games throughout the season and in the build up to the club’s Capital One Cup Final appearance the song re-entered the music charts, after a sustained campaign by the Black Cats faithful.
Original D:Ream member Al Mackenzie will be a special guest of the club at Sunderland’s game against West Brom on Wednesday night (7:45pm KO), where he will be introduced to the Stadium of Light crowd at half-time and draw the winning Foundation of Light’s ‘Grand In Your Hand’ lottery numbers.
Speaking ahead of his visit, Al said: “I’m really looking forward to visiting the Stadium of Light for the first time. It will be a bit special hearing so many singing our song. Things appear to have got a better recently, long may they continue. “
Tickets are still on sale for the game, priced at £25 for adults, £19 for over 65s and just £10 for under 16s. 2013-14 SAFC season card holders can buy up to two additional tickets at a reduced price of just £10 each, in a special ‘friends and family’ ticket offer.
