Rising North East star Sam Fender has announced his biggest headline tour yet, including two hometown shows.
The 25-year-old singer-songwriter from North Shields will play at the O2 Academy in Newcastle on December 7 and 8.
The dates are part of a tour in support of the release of his debut album, Hypersonic Missiles, which is due out on August 9 via Polydor Records.
They also include his biggest headline London show yet, at the O2 Academy in Brixton.
Fender is about to begin a sold-out spring tour, and will play a string of festivals over the summer, including Glastonbury, TRNSMT, a huge outdoor headline show at Tynemouth Castle, and performances in both Victoria Park (All Points East) and Hyde Park (with Bob Dylan + Neil Young).
