FANS have another chance to get tickets for the Foo Fighters as the US rockers roll into Sunderland.

Additional tickets have been released for the band’s tour-opening gig at the Stadium of Light on Bank Holiday Monday May 25.

An estimated 50,000 people are expected to turn up to the concert, which is the only gig so far scheduled at the stadium this summer.

There are now only a limited number of general admission tickets left for the concert at the Stadium of Light, which is the only stadium venue between London and Edinburgh on the UK leg of the tour.

SAFC commercial director Gary Hutchinson, said: “We’re not surprised to have seen such a huge interest in this concert. Foo Fighters are the biggest rock band in the world and for the Stadium of Light to host the opening night of the band’s European Leg of their world tour is fantastic.

“It is great that that the promoter has been able to release more tickets to satisfy demand and we look forward to welcoming the band in May and urge anyone that wishes to see the biggest event this summer not to miss out.”

Hospitality packages are also still available for the concert, prices start from £175 +VAT per person, including a guaranteed seat for the must-see show.

The new packages introduce a specially crafted American cuisine menu, including a contemporary steakhouse, offering guests slow cooked pulled pork to grilled steak and BBQ ribs, and the introduction of an innovative outdoor BBQ which is guaranteed to make the evening rock.

Fans that have already purchased vouchers in-person for the gig from the Stadium of Light ticket office are urged to collect their official tickets as soon as possible. The vouchers must be accompanied by a form of identification and once issued, tickets cannot be replaced or refunded.

The Stadium of Light’s ticket office is open 9am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday and from 10am until 1pm on Saturdays.
