Lawson, whose hits include Juliet, Taking Over Me and Brokenhearted will be headlining at the Retail and Style Awards that are taking place at the Bridges Shopping centre on April 23.
The event is organised by Sun FM and Bridges and is supported by Sunderland BID.
It will celebrate the city’s top businesses and individuals across 16 categories.
‘It’s a massive coup for us to get a band the status of Lawson to Sunderland at our awards and shows what progress the city is making’ said the MD of Sun FM, Julian Carter
‘It will make what already promises to be a fantastic night even more spectacular.’
There is already other acts line up to appear at the event, with further announcements to be made in the near future.
Tickets are already on sale for the night at £39 and are available from the customer service at the Bridges, from Sun FM reception and via Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-retail-and-style-awards-tickets-21054787436
