Exclusive access to a superstar


Sunderland AFC is hosting one of the North East's biggest musical events of 2013, when global superstar Rihanna, the pop star whose songs include Umbrella, We Found Love and Diamonds, performs at the Stadium of Light - one of only a handful of dates in the UK.

BQ readers can take advantage of a special advance booking opportunity which will allow you to enjoy the event in real style. Tickets for the concert, which will take place on 20 June 2013, go on sale at 9am on 20 November 2012.

However, BQ readers can contact the club now on or e-mail , quoting BQ13, to reserve hospitality packages. Demand is expected to be exceptional and this offer is only available until 5pm on Friday 16 November to reserve hospitality before general release.

Fans can guarantee they don’t miss out on the summer’s must-see show and enjoy the relaxed comfort of the Stadium of Light’s fantastic suites, with hospitality packages to suit all tastes and budgets.  Gold, Platinum and Diamond packages are available, ranging from informal options in the Black Cats Bar and Quinn’s Sports Bar, through to private executive boxes and the top of the range Diamond Package in the Stadium of Light’s top suites.

Prices start from just £160 per person (+VAT), which include some of the best seats in the house.
