Utilita Arena SECONDARY Hannah Lambert RESIZEDDC

Utilita Arena Newcastle (formerly Metro Radio Arena) sits overlooking the River Tyne and with a seating capacity of over 11,000, it is one of the largest concert and exhibition venues in the North East of England.

The arena celebrates their 25th anniversary this year and has a stellar line-up of acts and events taking place throughout 2020. However, due to Covid-19, many of these events have been rescheduled.

Local lad Sam Fender will perform to a sell-out crowd while many of the major tours will follow suit with Stormzy, Pussycat Dolls and McFly all taking to the stage at Utilita for what will be electrifying concerts. As well as live music - head to Utilita to experience an eclectic mix of events and entertainment all year round with returning acts and performances including Disney On Ice and Paw Patrol Live for the little ones and The Big North Tattoo Show 2020 and WWE Live for the thrill-seekers! Please check each event listing for rescheduled dates and further information.

The 11,000+ seater purpose built Utilita Arena Newcastle was the brainchild of former Animals stars, the late Chas Chandler and his partner in Park Arena, Nigel Stanger. It opened in November 1995 with basketball, and the first concert, David Bowie, was on Thursday 7th December 1995.

Since its opening, the Utilita Arena quickly established itself as a superb venue and major North East landmark, alongside the Tyne Bridge, Angel of the North and Hadrian's Wall. It has already played host to millions of visitors to concerts, exhibitions, conferences and Premier League Basketball.

The 40,000 square feet of exhibition and conference space is the largest under one roof in the North East and has hosted many prestigious events.
