Sam Fender has ensured since his big breakout in 2019 to continuously give back to the North in any way possible. This past Christmas alone, he appeared on the Christmas edition of the Big Issue, trying to encourage fans to purchase the magazine and aid the homeless crisis. Additionally, the rocker helped out at Newcastle West End Foodbank over the holiday period. His intimate gig comes just a few months after he became a patron of North East Homeless and furthers the support and aid shown to help the homeless crisis that faces the North East, as Shelter revealed there were 1,000 rough sleepers as of December 2021.
The hometown gig comes after Sam‘s mammoth UK arena tour, where the star took to sold-out crowds across the country including a stop at OVO Arena Wembley. He also claimed his second BRIT Award this year as he won Best British Alternative/Rock Act, and swept two NME Awards for Best UK Album and Best Album in the World for his Number One album Seventeen Going Under.
