Sunderland delighted with Bon Jovi gig

Thousands of fans of UK rockers Bon Jovi flocked to see him take to a North East stage.

The band played for three hours to more than 45,000 people.

“It was a fantastic show and a great way to kick off our summer concert season. There’s a huge amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to get a stadium show up and running and to see it come to fruition in such style is really pleasing.

“Once again, as a city we’ve demonstrated that by working together we can deliver major events in spectacular fashion, but with two more shows next week we certainly won’t be resting on our laurels.”

– Gary Hutchinson, SAFC commercial director

Sunderland’s Stadium of Light will host Rihanna on Thursday 20 June, followed by North East Live, featuring JLS, The Wanted, Little Mix, Rita Ora and host of top acts, on Saturday 22 June.
