Fans of international superstar Beyoncé will face a rush to get tickets when they go on sale next week.
SAFC’s commercial director, Gary Hutchinson, said: “The hype surrounding this concert has been immense, Beyoncé has created a real frenzy and we can’t wait to host her.”
With news that the club will not be offering a pre-sale for the concert, fans face a nervous wait to see if they are lucky enough to get tickets.
Zahra Altaii, 21, said: “I’m so anxious about getting tickets but hopefully luck is on my side.
“The tickets are expensive but it’s to be expected, Beyoncé is one of the biggest stars in the world right now and it’ll be worth every penny.”
Many fans are expected to camp outside the Stadium of Light overnight to guarantee their place in the queue, and the club have said that they must be over 18 years old.
The Stadium of Light has been an overnight home to many gig-goers in the past, with fans previously queuing overnight to see acts such as Take That and the Foo Fighters.
Although the club are not offering a pre-sale on tickets, some fans were lucky enough to buy tickets from Ticketmaster.
Adam Lawson, 22, was fortunate enough to get tickets in this pre-sale after reading about it on social media.
Adam said: “I saw a pre-sale code on Twitter and thought I’d try my luck. I was able to get four tickets for some of my family and myself.
“The show that she’ll put on will make it worth the money.”
General admission tickets are being priced at £73.50 and Gold Circle tickets are available for £108.50 plus booking fees. A select number of tickets will be available from the Stadium of Light box office, but seated tickets are only available online.
