St James' Park is preparing to welcome one of music's biggest stars.
Ed Sheeran is playing the stadium for three consecutive nights, to a total of around 180 thousand fans.
St James' Park is urging concert-goers to allow plenty of time to arrive at the venue and take their seats before the show starts.

Meanwhile the concert promoters have issued a plea to fans to help them in their battle with online ticket touts.
Last year Kilimanjaro Live and DHP Family, the joint promoters of the Ed Sheeran 2018 Uk tour, cancelled up to 10,000 tickets nationally that had been bought by online ticket touts and placed on secondary market sites such as Viagogo.
During the ticket sale period, they issued a strict set of terms and conditions to make sure that the tickets for these shows ended up in the hands of fans and not professional ticket touts who often add huge profit margins to the face value of tickets and exorbitant additional booking fees.
This weekend checks will be in place to make sure fans who only bought face value tickets to the show get into the gigs.
However to avoid not getting in fans who have bought online via Viagogo are being asked to come forward earlier in the day and seek help getting into the concerts rather than wait to be checked and possibly turned away on the door.
The spokesman also revealed another useful tip to spur of the moment concert-goers.
