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:

SAFC was approached about the possibility of holding the concert however, the date proposed would not have allowed enough time to complete pitch renovations ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Both parties explored earlier dates but were unfortunately unable to find a solution.”
