Sunderland Football Club say it was approached about the possibility of hosting a Rolling Stones concert in the summer, but dates were unsuitable.
The club said it was approached by a 'third-party agent' and there was 'no definite offer on the table', but there was a discussion over whether dates could work.
A spokesperson from Sunderland AFC said:
The Stadium of Light has hosted the likes of Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen and Take That. The last big-name to perform was Beyonce in 2016.
