Huge LED screens enveloped the stage, highlighting the flawless choreography from Beyonce and her crew. The global superstar ended an amazing night on Wearside with her number one hit Halo.

After the show, Sunderland AFC’s commercial director Gary Hutchinson, said:

To host the opening night of such a high profile tour is a clear demonstration of how the Stadium of Light is a major player on the concert circuit.

Add to this the England game we recently hosted here and you can see that, through hard work, effective partnerships and innovative thinking, we have built a first-class reputation for delivering successful major events in a leading venue.
